Mike Fulcher, 44, of Southsea, on why Portsmouth should be awarded the City of Football title and earn £1.6m from Sport England

Portsmouth is all about football.

I think if we become the City of Football it will be great for the city and the future of grassroots football.

This is all the more important to me now with a brand new grandson who will be playing himself in not too many years.

The whole city should get behind the bid - if we can work together to save the club we can do the same to secure this award too!
