Students vs. Staff Charity Football Match – Team Announcement & Tickets on sale!

The annual University of Portsmouth Students vs Staff Charity Football match is back at the home of Portsmouth FC, Fratton Park!

Now in its 2nd year, the students versus staff football match demonstrates how the University can come together to give back to the local community and beyond.
This event is made up of two teams who have been carefully selected and will represent different areas of the University community. Each player aims to raise at least £150 for charity. Last year, this event raised over £6,000 and is set to raise more this year!  We can now reveal the team players – to make a donation to a specific player, please click on their photo!
Tickets are also on sale! All funding raised from ticket sales will be donated to charity.
