Find out what is happening around the ground before – and after – Saturday’s League One match against Gillingham.

Paying tribute
The club will pay tribute to all those fans – and members of the Pompey family – who have passed away during the course of the season.

There will be a minute’s applause before kick-off and the names will be displayed on the big screen.

Player of the Season
The winner of the prestigious The News/Sports Mail Player of the Season award will be presented at around 2.45pm, so make sure you are in your seat to see who lifts the trophy.

Former players return
Kevin Harper and Dave Waterman are both attending the match and will be going around the lounges beforehand.

Scottish winger Harper was part of the side that were promoted to the Premier League in 2003, while utility man Waterman turned professional at the club in the mid-1990s.

The Pompey fanzone is located behind the North Stand and is the perfect place for our junior supporters to visit ahead of the game.

The popular inflatable penalty challenge returns, while fans can also enjoy foot darts and try out the speed cage, which measures how fast you can shoot the ball.

Live music
Local singer-songwriter Marley Blandford will be performing live in the Victory Bar just after the final whistle and there is free entry for all Pompey fans with a ticket for the game.

Marley binds together a blend of pop, soul and folk to create his unique sound and has received airplay on BBC Radio 2, as well as having live slots on the BBC Introducing Live Lounge.

He performed live to more than four million viewers on BBC One in 2015 and has opened shows for Christina Perri and Lawson.
