It’s a sell out – around 19,000 fans to watch University sponsored Portsmouth Football Club in first league match

Portsmouth Football Club’s first league match – with the University as the main sponsor – is a sell out.

Nearly 19,000 fans are expected to watch Pompey play Luton Town at home on Saturday (4 August), with the University’s name and brand displayed on the team’s shirts, in the match day programme and across multiple billboards and adverts at Fratton Park.  

The University’s sponsorship is part of a three-year deal as the Club’s Main Partner, building on our successful year as their Official Education Sponsor, with joined-up research and outreach to inspire local children.

Discounted Purple Tickets are available for staff and students for all other home league matches for the same price as last year – £15.

The 2018/19 fixture list has details of all home League One matches including the final match on 4 May against Accrington Stanley.

Tickets are available to buy online via the Club’s website. Once staff and students have selected their match seats, you should select the “UOP (Student ID required)” ticket option for £15 and choose whether you want tickets delivered or collected at Fratton Park. Please take your student/staff ID card with you to show stewards.

As well as discounted tickets, the partnership with the Football Club will provide a number of collaborative health and education opportunities, student placements at the club, discounted use of the grounds and facilities, as well as engaging players in the University’s outreach programme with local schools and colleges to help inspire children to apply for university.
