With the campaign expected to begin behind closed doors, followed by a reduced capacity, there will be no sale of season tickets.

Instead a £25 flexi-season ticket will operate, purely for existing season-ticket holders – with an additional ticket fee per match attended.

It will enable them to be present at selected games, calculated on a rotational basis with other holders.

In addition, it will allow their current seat to be retained for the 2021-22 campaign, which is expected to see a return to the usual season ticket.

Approved by the Tony Goodall Fans’ Conference and Heritage & Advisory board, flexi-season tickets also permit holders to group themselves with family and friends to ensure they can attend the same fixtures together.

The ticket, which is available to existing season-ticket holders only, is priced at £25 for adults, £10 for junior supporters (aged 17 and under) and £5 for those aged 10 and below.

It will go on sale from 10am on Monday, August 17, with the window lasting until 11.59pm on Sunday, September 13.

The allocation of stands and seats will depend on Fratton Park capacity restrictions, rendering it unlikely supporters will be able to sit in their usual place during 2020-21.

In terms of match ticket prices, they have been frozen at last season’s advanced sales rates, being £24 for adults, £18 for seniors (65+), £16 for young persons (18-22), and £7 for juniors (17 and under).

Ambulant and wheelchair match-day tickets remain at £16 and £15 respectively, which includes a carer.

Supporters can call 0345 646 1898 (option one) or visit the ticket booth behind the Fratton End.

Meanwhile, Pompey plan to soon announce a membership scheme allowing supporters who are not flexi-season ticket holders the chance to attend games.
