“We cannot wait to welcome our fans back to the stadium as soon as possible, and when that happens it will be via 100% digital tickets in all home areas of the stadium. Over the last year we have worked closely with Ticketmaster and Fortress to develop a smooth journey from ticket purchase through to stadium access which will allow easy, safe and contactless entry using their smartphone device.”

Pompey to Launch New Fan Loyalty and Rewards Programme Initiative in partnership with Barclays and Fortress GB

Pompey to Launch New Fan Loyalty and Rewards Programme Initiative in partnership with Barclays and Fortress GB

23.03.2021

As part of a partnership with Barclays and Fortress GB, the new initiative will help deepen the connection between Pompey and the Fratton faithful, and ensure that supporters are rewarded for their loyalty to – and engagement with – the club. Season ticket holders and members will receive a card that will work as both their matchday ticket and a pre-paid payment card. Barclays will embed payment technology within the card, meaning it can be used for all purchases at Fratton Park and the club shop, as well as anywhere that accepts Visa as a payment method. Fans will earn loyalty points based on specific interactions with the club, which they can then redeem for exclusive rewards or money-can’t-buy Pompey experiences. The programme will also enable members to earn loyalty points by spending at several affiliated high street and online brands.
