POMPEY say they’ve given fans the best possible deal for next season’s ticket prices.

Supporters will make savings and get free games depending on their situation.

An adult season ticket for every home game will cost £360 – but if you buy one before July 15 then the price is £20 less and you get a free game thrown in.

The price is £320 if you pay by cash or debit card, £300 if you’re renewing a season ticket or been a holder in the last three years and £280 if you’re a Pompey shareholder. If you do all of that then you’ll get nine free games.

Season tickets for fans aged 17 to 22 and over 60 cost £270 and £90 if you’re under 16.

Those people can also save money and get free games.

If you buy an adult, young or senior person’s season ticket for the family section then you can take a child aged 10 or under for free. Otherwise adult tickets bought on match days cost £20, for pensioners it’s £15 and people under 16 pay £5.

Mark Catlin, the club’s new chief executive officer, said: ‘The decision to let kids aged ten and under into the family section free with a paying adult, OAP or young person was the right one for a community owned club, and we hope to see the family section full next season with Pompey fans of the future.’

Tickets are due to go on sale from May 13, pending that deals go through successfully with the banks.

Pompey’s engagement manager Micah Hall said: ‘We believe our pricing model will change the game completely and give fans an unprecedented level of control over the price they pay and the way they pay.

‘We take great pride in once again reinforcing our commitment to community and supporters by enshrining the principle of trust as central to our strategy. ‘In the recent past many fans have been reluctant to pay cash or even buy a season ticket because they had no trust in the ultimate destination of their money.

‘We want to reward people for trusting us.

‘We hope that fans will take advantage of the big extra savings on programmes and Pompey meals which add very substantial discounts to the overall package.’
