Almost 14,000 supporters have snapped up their seat for the 2019-20 season.That’s higher than any other year since the Blues exited administration.

Fans are clearly exited about the opportunity of Kenny Jackett’s side pushing for League One promotion next term.

Pompey just missed out on a return to the Championship last term after suffering play-off semi-final defeat to Sunderland.
