Southend 3-1 Pompey: They said what?

Have your say

Pompey fans have been urged to help decide how the £30,000 Fanpower Stadium prize money is spent.

The Fratton faithful have been given a three-way choice to dictate the destiny of the cash they won in the npower competition earlier this month.

Supporters were invited to make suggestions after the money was secured through their activity on Twitter and Facebook, beating off the other 71 Football League clubs to land the prize.

Now the three most popular choices have been put forward to npower, with a vote being held on the Fanpower Facebook page.

These include free tickets to local schools for matches, improved disabled facilities at Fratton Park or a statue in honour of the fans.

And with the deadline on Monday, July 2, they have less than a week to declare their preference.

The first option involves free tickets distributed by the Pompey Sports and Education Foundation to local schools throughout the campaign.

Identifying youngsters who may rarely get the chance to watch Pompey, seats will be in the Milton End and would be available from the home match against Oldham on September 1.

Secondly there is the opportunity to fund the construction of a disabled spectating platform and disabled toilet at the corner of the South stand and Milton end.

This would be used by away disabled supporters, and, if space, home disabled supporters.

In addition, moving away disabled supporters to this area would free up extra disabled spaces for home fans in front of the Fratton End.

Finally, the third idea is a statue located outside Fratton Park to provide a lasting testimony to Blues fans and their outstanding passion and support.

A shortlist of designs for the statue would be drawn up and voted on by supporters.
