THE price of a cuppa at Fratton Park is among the cheapest in the Football League, a survey has revealed.

Pompey fans can buy a cup of tea for just £1, while £2.50 pies at the club are the cheapest in the south.

Club chief executive Mark Catlin said: ‘The whole ethos of being a community-run and supporter-run club is to try and make it affordable as possible, without impacting significantly on our match-day revenue.’

Engagement manager Micah Hall said fan Tony Goodall was behind the drive for the cheap cuppa.

Mr Goodall had helped set up the Pompey Supporters Trust before he died in March 2012.

Mr Hall said: ‘It was Tony’s vision to have a supporter-owned club and it was also his vision to have a £1 cup of tea.

‘We’re delighted to be able to do that for him posthumously.’

The BBC Price of Sport survey also revealed the most expensive cup of tea, at £2.50, is sold at Manchester United.
