Matchday Guide: Pompey v Accrington

Read about the activities happening around the ground on Saturday

21 April 2023

Pompey are back in Fratton action when they welcome Accrington to the south coast on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

And there is plenty going on around the ground to get everyone in the mood for the big game.

Community Ownership Day
Saturday sees the club celebrate ‘community ownership day’ as we mark 10 years since the city came together to keep Portsmouth FC alive.

Many of the key figures involved in saving the club will be attending the game, with some of them interviewed on the pitch at half-time.

Pompey Welcomes
As part of Amnesty International UK’s ‘Football Welcomes’ campaign, the club have donated tickets for local refugees and asylum seekers, which will be distributed via Portsmouth City of Sanctuary.

Fanzone & Refreshments
Our DJ will be spinning the decks and getting everyone pumped ahead of kick-off, while the inflatable games return for our younger supporters.

The shipping container behind the Fratton End will be serving premium guest beers and street food, such as pizza fries, chicken goujons and BBQ brisket loaded fries.

Meanwhile, pizza and Moretti is available from the kiosk four mezzanine in the North Stand, with burgers available in kiosks three (North Stand) and kiosk 11 (South Stand), as well as the container and the Victory Bar.

The Victory Bar, shipping container and external North Stand kiosk will all be open from midday.

Our delicious guest pie available to buy in all kiosks this month is lamb hotpot.

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

We are continuing to use the ‘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 kiosk queues in the North Stand.

The system has now also been extended into the South Stand and this can be found at kiosk 11 (near the Milton End).

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

The early bird special of a pie and a pint for just £7.95 (or pie and a soft drink for £6) is available from when the turnstiles open at 1.30pm until 2pm.

There are also freshly baked pies and sausage rolls available in kiosks across the stadium.

Meanwhile, the Lucky Row competition will ensure some lucky supporters win free pizza courtesy of Domino's.

There is limited ticketing still available – including in the Milton End – and fans can click here to secure their seat.

Supporters based outside of the UK can watch the game live on iFollow, with an audio option for domestic fans.

If you are a season ticket holder and not planning to attend, then you could make your seat available on the ticket exchange and receive a £5 credit.

Academy Showcase
As part of our continued academy showcase initiative, the under-12 and under-13 teams will be at the game.

They will be walking around the pitch at half-time, so make sure to give them a wave and round of applause.

Enjoy the Game
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 or WhatsApp message to 07500 778844.

Enjoy the match.
