Below is the info, as issued on The Pompey Site


Wembley Ticket Information

Pompey have been allocated 32,000 tickets for their FA Cup semi-final against either Tottenham or Fulham at Wembley on Sunday, April 11, kick-off 4pm.

Tickets will be sold online here or by phoning 0844 847 1898 (option one). Tickets will be sold over a seven-day period starting from Wednesday, March 24.

The club will begin by selling tickets to season ticket holders stand by stand (see timetable below).

Every season ticket holder will be eligible for two tickets.

Pompey Blue members will be guaranteed one ticket.

Supporter groups will be allocated 800 tickets and will supply details of their members that qualify.

Additionally, every supporter on the club’s database who has been to three or more matches at Fratton Park this season – up to and including the FA Cup quarter-final against Birmingham on Saturday, March 6 – can also purchase one ticket. They will be notified of their eligibility and their relevant client ID number – which is required for booking – by post or email.

Any remaining tickets will go on general sale to supporters on the club’s database at a date to be announced.

Adult tickets are priced at £30, £40, £50 and £60. Seats for under 17s and those aged over 60 cost £20, £30, £40 and £50.

Timetable for ticket sales:
Wednesday, March 24: South stand upper season ticket holders
Thursday, March 25: North stand upper season ticket holders
Friday, March 26: Jobsite Stand (Fratton end) season ticket holders
Saturday, March 27: North stand lower/south stand lower season ticket holders
Monday, March 29: Pompey Blue members
Tuesday, March 30: Supporters who have purchased tickets for three or more home games during the 2009/10 season.

If season ticket holders are unable to purchase tickets on their allocated date they will be able to purchase tickets on a following day.

The same ratio of tickets from each price band will be sold on each day to allow supporters from all sections of Fratton Park to have the widest choice of seats available.

There will be 200 lines dedicated to Pompey, with a phased purchasing system ensuring waiting time is kept to a minimum for fans.

There will be a fixed charge of £3 per ticket and £4.95 for registered post per delivery. The postage fee is necessary as the FA do not issue duplicate tickets.

A total of 100 pairs of wheelchair tickets and 50 pairs of visually impaired/ambulant tickets will also be made available. These tickets cost £30, with a carer going free.

These will be handled by Pompey’s ticket office. Only postal applications will be accepted, with proof of disability for non-season ticket holders. Please send applications to: Allison McNeil, Disabled Liaison Officer, Portsmouth Football Club Ticket Office, Rodney Road, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO4 8SX.

Official coach travel is being run by Lucketts Travel and is priced at £19 for adults and £15 for under 16s (must be accompanied by an adult).

Coach travel can be booked online here, by calling 0845 389 0644 or at the Lucketts Travel sales office in Broadcut, Wallington, Fareham, PO16 8TB.

Coaches will depart Fratton Park from 9am with coaches leaving once fully loaded. The last coach will leave at 10.30am.

FA Cup Tickets FAQs

How many tickets can I book in one go?
You can make as many group bookings as you like but each booking is limited to 10 people. So you can book 10 tickets in one booking and payment will be taken, and then you can book another 10, etc. You must have the relevant client ID numbers and surnames of the people you are booking for.

My friend and I sit together at Fratton Park – can we book seats together at Wembley?
A person booking can also purchase tickets for their friend at the same time, as long as they can provide their surname and client ID number.

Can I buy tickets on Sunday, March 28?
The phone lines will be closed but season ticket holders can still buy online.

I’m a south stand lower/north stand lower season ticket holder who is going to the Tottenham away game on Saturday, March 27 – when can I book my Wembley ticket?
If you cannot buy your semi-final ticket on your allocated day then you are still able to purchase it on any following day (online only on Sunday, March 28).

What time of the day can I buy tickets?
