POMPEY fans are being urged to keep calm and get tested ahead of a football match.

Fans under the age of 25 can get tested for chlamydia at Fratton Park, when the Blues take on Bury on Saturday, March 9.

Portsmouth Football Club is supporting an education and awareness drive by Solent NHS Trust.

The trust has joined forces with the club’s dedicated charity, Pompey in the Community’s Tackle Health programme, to ensure fans realise the importance of looking after their sexual health.

Supporters will be handed a free testing kit, which will involve giving a urine sample that they hand back to the screening team.

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STI in the UK, affecting both men and women.

The majority of people have no symptoms, but the infection has serious consequences.

If left untreated, chlamydia can cause infertility in women.
