Oldham 0 Pompey 2: they said what?

Have your say

Supporters have heaped praise on Pompey after the release of their season tickets for the 2012-13 campaign.

The Blues’ pricing scheme has been well received by fans, with some reductions of up to 70 per cent.

Pompey took the step of sitting down with supporters’ groups for consultation before releasing their latest price lists.

And that policy has paid off, with the prices receiving large amounts of praise.

Pompey fans’ liaison officer Johnny Moore has been encouraged by the feedback he has received since the prices were released.

He said: ‘We spoke to a lot of supporters before announcing the prices.

‘They had obviously sat down and done their maths.

‘We worked with the costs we needed to cover and then looked for a compromise.

‘We had the backing of (administrator) Trevor Birch to go and do that.

‘What has come back since the prices have come out has been positive.

‘The prices are favourable when you compare them to other clubs. We think we have got it about right.’

Fans can get the tickets for the early-bird rate, which runs until July 6.

Season tickets can be bought in person from the Frogmore Road ticket office, online or by calling 0844 847 1898.

Tickets bought online and by phone are subject to a booking fee of £2.40 and £3.60 respectively.

Season tickets will then go on general sale from 10am on Monday, July 16.
