Pompey says that this move has been made to help improve the speed of service and to reduce queuing times for fans around Fratton Park, as well as being a more hygienic process to pay for items.

Programme sellers will also be taking contactless payments.

However, there is a flexible approach for the opening few games, with cash also accepted when purchasing your matchday magazine for £3.

Fans will soon be able to use their season ticket/membership cards as a pre-paid payment device that enables them to earn loyalty points for items brought inside the stadium.
