Today marks a key date for Pompey supporters hoping to watch their team in the Championship next term.

The deadline for season ticket renewals arrives at 5pm this afternoon - a significant landmark for those wanting to nail down their Fratton Park seats for the Blues’ return to the second tier.

It will be the last chance for fans who had a seat at PO4 as John Mousinho’s men gained promotion, to ensure they do the same again in the 2024-25 campaign.

With sales capped at 15,000, Pompey went charging through the 12,000 barrier last Friday with anticipation growing after last season’s League One title glory.

A 2,000-strong waiting list will be hoping they can land a season ticket, with those who don’t renew losing their seat and having to join the list for a future chance to arise.

Any unrenewed places will go on sale to supporters at 10am on Tuesday, June 25 - with those on the waiting list prioritised in order of position.

Those who don’t want to buy season tickets will still get the chance to watch games, with an allocation sold on a match-by-match basis and Fratton Park’s capacity now topping 21,000.

Pompey have put up season ticket prices this year - though there was an overwhelmingly positive reaction to the size of those increases from supporters when they were announced last month.

The price of an adult season ticket renewal in the Fratton End, as well as the North Stand wings, South Stand wings and Milton End have gone up £41 to £455 from last season’s early bird renewals - a rise of 9.9 per cent.

Meanwhile, adult renewals in the centre of the North Stand and South Stand are up £51 to £475 from - a rise of 12.02 per cent.

Children’s renewal prices (2-13) rise £10 to £105 in the centre of the North Stand and South Stand (a 10.5 per cent increase) with an increase of £9 to £99 in the Fratton End, North Stand wing, South Stand wing and Milton End (10 per cent rise).

Chief executive Andy Cullen pinpointed rising costs as the defining factor in those prices.
