This weekend sees the first of the reduced £20 ticket games as Wigan come to town.

I know some will argue that £20 is still too much, but in this day and age, especially a Pompey day and age, that amount for a top-flight game is very good and cannot be scoffed at if you ask me.

Pompey clearly need to look at ticket prices on a regular basis next season – categorising into ‘bands’ if needed – with all, or at least most games, at a reduced rate, with of course season ticket holders also looked after, as I am sure they will be.

The message that cheaper tickets means more come through the gates needs to be one that we put across – and with these bigger gates should come greater support, which – in theory – will see the performance of the players raise, so everyone wins…

People might say the club lose out, and maybe they will but in the grander scheme of things will they really?

Surely it is better to sell-out at a lower amount than have 3000 plus tickets going unsold at £34-£40?

The extra revenue generated through food and merchandise should also help compensate things, right?

If we cannot sell-out, or near sell-out the sections notorious for not selling-out at these prices we never will – lets make it count!

PLAY UP POMPEY!
