TICKETS for Pompey’s trip to Southampton in April will go on sale next week.

The club will receive an allocation of 3,100 seats for the match at St Mary’s Stadium on Saturday, April 7, which kicks off at 1pm.

Arrangements will mirror those put in place by the clubs and Hampshire Constabulary during the last derby day at Fratton Park.

Supporters who purchase match tickets will also be required to purchase coach travel via Lucketts Travel.

As a condition of entry, travelling on an official club coach will be the only way to gain access into St Mary’s Stadium.

Supporters are guaranteed coach travel once a match day ticket has been purchased. Match tickets will only be issued to supporters once they are on board their coach.

The tickets will go on sale on Monday in phases, with season ticket holders getting the first chance to snap them up before they go on general sale later in the month.

Nick Byrom, Pompey’s commercial director, said: ‘Following the successful operation here at Fratton Park in December and discussions with Hampshire Constabulary, we are working closely with our colleagues at Southampton to ensure that enjoyment and safety at the game are the priority for our visit to St Mary’s.

‘We hope that this will provide a safe environment for all supporters, enabling them to enjoy the drama on the pitch without any concerns.’
