Pompey fans who have not been successful in securing tickets for the forthcoming League One match at AFC Wimbledon do not have to miss out on the action.
As the fixture takes place during an international weekend, it can be streamed live in the UK via iFollow.
This will be multi camera coverage, with commentary from BBC Radio Solent and on-screen graphics. A match pass can be bought here for £10.
Portsmouth Football Club would also like to clarify its policy for allocating away tickets.
The club received just 739 tickets for the AFC Wimbledon match on Saturday, October 13 (675 terrace places and 64 seats).
These have been allocated as follows:
- Five per cent allocated to the supporters’ group nearest to the venue where Pompey are playing (in this instance, the London Supporters’ Club).
- Five per cent to be shared among other official supporter groups.
- Just under 100 to ‘away season ticket holders’ – a legacy group who commit to buying tickets for every away game and have done for many years.
- 12 tickets to key sponsors as per their contractual rights.
The remaining tickets (approximately 550) were allocated to season ticket holders and former shareholders via an electronic ballot. Around 1,750 supporters applied for these tickets.
This policy was agreed in the summer of 2013 by the Fans’ Conference, with regards the fairest way to distribute tickets when demand was likely to exceed supply.
The matter is addressed periodically and will form part of the discussion at Saturday morning’s Fans’ Conference meeting.
