Shrewsbury Matchday Guide: Remembrance Fixture

Find out what is happening around the ground on Saturday

28 October 2022

Portsmouth Football Club are inviting supporters, players and staff to pay respects all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Saturday’s match against Shrewsbury at Fratton Park (3pm kick-off) is Pompey’s official remembrance fixture.

The Blues side will be wearing poppies embroidered into their shirts, while a wreath is being laid ahead of the game.

The Last Post will be played, which will be followed by a period of silence.

Veterans have also been invited to watch the game to honour the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War.

We would respectfully ask that all supporters are in their seats by 2.45pm to allow everyone to pay their respects.

Pompey: Champions of England – a new book produced by the Pompey History Society – will be able to purchase from the Fanzone.

This is priced £15, with £10 going to the Pompey Supporters’ Trust fund to build a statue of club legend Jimmy Dickinson.

A DJ, table football and PS4 station means that there is plenty of entertainment on offer behind the Fratton End, while the Victory Bar is open from midday

Junior Blues are invited to come and ‘Trick or Treat’ with us in the family section in the lower part of the South Stand.

It is the final day of Oktoberfest in the shipping container. There will be four guest lagers available for one day only – when they’re gone, they’re gone.

The container is continuing to offer two-pint stein cups, which must be returned to the container and are not permitted inside the stadium.

Fans will be able to purchase delicious chicken strips and chips, as well as vegan chilli with jacket potatoes.

Please note that only supporters seated in the Fratton End will have access to the container bar at half-time.

Kiosk four in the North Upper will be serving Moretti on tap and will also have pizza for sale.

We are continuing to trial a new ‘beer token’ system in the North Stand. They are available from kiosks three and five, which have express queues, but can also be redeemed in any of the regular kiosks queues in the North Stand.

Supporters in the North Lower should note that if the bars/kiosks get congested, there are more available in the North Upper.

Meanwhile, Domino’s Pizza are once again running their popular ‘lucky row’ competition, giving fans the chance to receive pizza at half-time.

The Pompey Lottery team will also be heading around the hospitality lounges to sell draw tickets.

We would like to remind everyone that Fratton Park is a cashless stadium.

Tickets for the game are now extremely limited, so book your seat online here to make sure you do not miss out.

We would like to remind all supporters that we will not tolerate discrimination of any kind at Fratton Park.

Please help us continue to make the ground a safe and friendly environment to watch football by bringing any unacceptable behaviour to the attention of stewards and police.

You can also report any abusive or discriminatory behaviour by sending a text message to 07500 778844.
