The Fratton end is to be turned into a sea of blue and white to mark the first-ever Fans’ Day.

Monday, May 2, will see the launch of the inaugural event, which has been created to celebrate being a Pompey fan.

The Pompey community is embracing the concept which takes place on the day of the last home match of the season against Norwich.

A host of rides and stalls will be set-up in the Fratton end car park, running from 12-6.30pm.

In addition, Jobsite have stumped up four-figure sponsorship to ensure supporters can do their bit inside the ground.

Every seat in the Fratton end will have a banner to hold up before kick off.

Once synchronised, it will become a sea of blue and white with ‘1898’ written across it.

And one of the organisers, Tom Dearie, is urging all fans to take part as he looks for the first Fans’ Day to prove a big success.

He said: ‘We are asking every fan in the Fratton end to join in what we hope will be a visually stunning backdrop to the team doing their last pre-match huddle of the season at Fratton Park.

‘When you take your seat you will find a clap banner and, at the designated time which will be printed on the reverse of the clap banner, we ask that everyone in that stand holds theirs up to help create this display.

‘The clap banners used for the display can be folded back afterwards and be used to make extra noise during the game to help cheer Pompey on to a final home win in what has been a long, hard season for everyone associated with the club.’
