History Day At Fratton Park

Pompey’s rich history will be the focus of a special day of events at the ground, including tours of the stadium – which are free for U17’s. 

On Sunday, April 19 (11am-3pm) – the day after the home match against Bury – the club is staging a History Day, centred on the twice annual programme fair, which will be held in the Victory Lounge under the Fratton End.

A display of club memorabilia will be on show, encompassing the 117-year story of the club, including the replica FA Cup presented to the club for winning the trophy in 2008, as well as some other artefacts which rarely see the light of day.

There will also be an exhibition by the Pompey Pals project, which is a charity devoted to telling the story of the men from Portsmouth who signed up for duty at the outbreak of World War One.

Entry to the fair and the displays will be free, but the club are also organising tours of the stadium, including the dressing rooms, tunnel area and boardroom of the iconic venue.

Priced at just £10 for adults, with accompanied juniors (under 17) free, instead of the usual £5, these are sure to prove popular.
