When Portsmouth Football Club needed its fans the most, you magnificently delivered by purchasing shares to make the PST the largest shareholder in Portsmouth Community Football Club.
Whilst our first year on the pitch perhaps all too often lived up to the 'typical Pompey' mantra, off the field has been 'untypically Pompey' with huge strides being made towards making Portsmouth Football Club a sustainable business moving forwards. Now the PST wants fans to help expand the club's essential infrastructure, by buying more shares to help fund the new training ground development.
As all Pompey fans know, the club has been looking for a training ground for many years and has always failed to deliver, however it has only taken a year of fan ownership for that to change. A key objective of the new Club Board was to provide a training ground fitting of a professional football club and this objective will soon become a reality.
The new facility will see the club own purpose built pitches, changing rooms and treatment/ gym areas for use by the first team through to the Academy.
Some of the Club's Presidents have provided funds to get the project up and running, but as a major shareholder in PFC, the PST also has an obligation to raise funds for such projects which will leave the club with a tangible asset for generations to come.
To launch this new share push, the PST would like to invite you to join us at the Victory Suite at Fratton Park on Saturday 24th May between 11am and 3pm where the proposed new training ground plans will be on display and PST Board Members will be discussing how once again, through various methods, fans can buy new or additional shares to provide funds towards a training ground project which thanks to our magnificent fans, will make Portsmouth FC stronger than ever.
John Kimbell, PST Spokesman said - "If you aren’t already a shareholder this 'open day' is primarily designed for you and we would urge you to come along, meet some of our board and discuss how you can make a massive contribution to not only this project, but the long term future of Portsmouth Community Football Club. Similarly, if you are already a shareholder and would like to join us and perhaps bring a friend or family member along who maybe interested in becoming a shareholder you would be more than welcome to drop in and see us"
Doors will open at 11am and no tickets are required. Just bring along plenty of questions and if you think you maybe interested in purchasing a share please bring some photographic ID (passport ideal) and a recent utility bill to confirm your address - plus of course your cheque book!
If you have any further questions, please contact John Kimbell (PST Spokesman) at - firstname.lastname@example.org.
