Matchday Guide: Pompey v Reading

Read about what is happening around the ground on Saturday

16 February 2024

Pompey are back in action when Reading visit Fratton Park on Saturday (3pm kick-off).

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

FanZone
The FanZone will be back in full swing behind the Fratton End, with our resident DJ spinning the decks and getting everyone pumped.

There are also some inflatable games for our younger fans to enjoy courtesy of Pompey in the Community.

And Nelson’s Corner in the Victory Lounge will have a PlayStation console to keep them entertained.

Our friends at Lalys Pharmacy will also be on hand once again to offer blood pressure checks and provide recommendations based on the results.

Food & Drink
To quench your thirst, the stadium kiosks are offering Madri, East Coast IPA, Stowford Press and an improved Pompey Lager Pilsner.

Supporters can take advantage of an early bird offer for 30 minutes after the turnstiles open at 1.30pm, with a pie/sausage roll and a pint for just £8.15.

Fans can also enjoy a pie and a soft drink for just £6 throughout the afternoon, while our guest pie this month is minced beef, bacon and cheddar.

Click here for a full list of tempting offerings provided by Piglet's Pantry on Saturday.

The street food pergola is located in the FanZone, with chimichurri steak, gaucho and vegan sandwiches being sold.

The shipping container behind the Fratton End will be serving chicken bites and chips, while supporters in the North Stand can visit the kiosk four mezzanine to buy pizza and Amstel.

Meanwhile, on offer in the Victory Bar are roast dinner Yorkshire pudding wraps and chilli con carne.

To speed up service, beer tokens are available to purchase in kiosks three, five and 11.

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

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

Tickets
Seats for the contest have sold out, although the ticket exchange remains open until 11.59pm on Friday, so keep checking to see if any more become available.

Supporters are advised not to call the ticket office on a matchday, as phone lines are very busy.

Please note that there is a £3 charge to receive an eticket or paper ticket if you leave your season card at home. Fans should also be aware that the ticket office will not reprint lost season cards on a matchday.

Overseas supporters can watch all the action live with four-camera coverage on iFollow, while there is audio commentary available for those based in the UK.

Rainbow Ball
The EFL and PUMA have teamed up to unveil a rainbow ball that marks LGBT+ History Month.

For every goal scored in the Championship, League One and League Two, PUMA will make a donation to an LGBTQ+ Fans for Diversity Fund.

Getting to the Game
Pompey have partnered with First Solent and supporters can use First South’s No.1 service as a direct link to Fratton Park.

First Solent are giving away matchday tickets throughout the 2023/24 season. Click here or follow on Twitter (@FirstPortsmouth) and Facebook (First Bus Solent) to see how you can be in with a chance of winning.

Additional Information
Please note that Fratton Park is a cashless stadium and only contactless payment will be accepted.

Programme sellers around the ground will still have contactless payment devices, but cash is also being accepted while we work to ensure a more reliable contactless system outside the ground.

Please note that only contactless payment can be used for programmes bought in the Victory Lounge, kiosks or club shop.

The Pompey Lottery will be roaming around the lounges and selling tickets for matchday draw competitions, with proceeds supporting the academy.

And the new retail kiosk is available to use for supporters in the South Stand.

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.

Supporters are also politely asked to keep all aisles and walkways clear for the safety and comfort of your fellow fans.

Love Football. Protect the Game.
