Pompey will play SPL Champions Rangers at Fratton Park on 8 August for a Pre-season.

This will be the first ever meeting between the sides and also will maybe see the return of former Fratton favourite, Pedro Mendes.

Kick off is at 3pm.

Season Ticket holders will be given priority for seats and have their chance to buy tickets form June 29 to July 10.

Then for members form July 13 to July 17.

Tickets then will go on general sale on July 20 but due to the high demand, remaining seats will only be sold to fans on the Pompey’s ticketing database.

Tickets are priced at £20 for adults and £10 for concessions.

Rangers fans will have the whole Milton End and away tickets will only be sold at Ibrox only.

Peter Storrie quotes on the Pompey Site: “We’re delighted to have secured such a prestigious friendly against Rangers, the SPL champions. It really should be a fantastic game on the Saturday before the start of the Premier League season so I hope our fans will snap up the tickets.

“Rangers tell me that they could have sold 7,000 tickets, such is their incredible following, but we want to make sure all our loyal supporters get the chance to be there for such a memorable occasion.”

  • nice one Mad, thanks for this appreciated made it easier for me coming in from work to see you had suggested this…
    the return of pedro – maybe they will let us keep him! i think it is safe to say i will be there!

  • Looking forward to this, especially as I thought all the friendlies had been sorted – some blue square clubs plus the Portugal trip, so this a welcome addition, and quite exciting. Be nice to see Pedro again.

  • no chance dudes – he’s a Teddy Bear now lol – will be a great day and the Bears will be down in force – maybe Hermann Munster might be in Royal Blue by the time we play if reports are true, but IMO we would be better going for Tonel but you may think different – is the big Icelander worth buying ? Rangers Till i Die !

  • I hear we may be taking a large army down for the craic we have already sold out the Emirates against ASS-nil, and may have 20,000 at that match – great day for all and we can have a drink and a sing song

  • sorry me again – but I must congratulate you on the forum, the Players ‘past and present’ site, excellent work lads, well done – true football fanatics – I applaud you all.

  • cheers mate, appreciate that we have all – writters and members – put alot of time and effort into vital pompey, and we are all really proud of it.
    are you a member of vital rangers or the ed? eiher way, if you are coming to the game drop me a line and i will happily buy you a beer – a large number of us from this site will most likely met up for a beer!

  • I am the ed mate but I work offshore and it is very hard so another 3 are also admin, but I have a ticket for the ASS-nil game and my mate is trying to get 6 for us at the game with you lads, but I thought we were getting 7,000 and I have heard more like 10,000 could be there……….so if you hear of any tickets can you email me bro – I will PM my email, and even if I don’t get we will come down for the bash as we love away games in Europe or England apart from Manchester which by the way was blown out of proportion and with 200,000 plus fans down you are bound to get some eejits but mainly it was casuals from well I won’t say on here but 1,000 spoiled it for us all and again we are tarred for this.

    I went to every game away when we got to the final and never once did we have trouble home or away – we were the first club to lay on a square for the away fans to drink and play games and escort them to the ground in the Euro Championships and then Barca followed suit then the scum lol.anyway babbling on here but as I say ticket or no ticket I will be in that area anyway so would be great to meet up for a few sherbitts mate . I will PM my email bro ! OK

  • costablancabear – I was amazed 200 000 fans made that trip. Pompey barely got that at portsmouth after we won the FA cup! but I (personally) don’t really look at what a few idiots do. Anyway, I have my subtle plan to steal pedro mendes all planned… no-one will notice.
