Tickets are on sale for Students vs. Staff Charity Football Match

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

Now in its 3rd 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 £7,000 and is set to raise more this year!
Players have been revealed and tickets are now on sale! All funding raised from ticket sales will be donated to charity.

When: Friday 25th May, 5:30pm – 10pm (Kick-Off at 7pm)

Where: Fratton Park, Portsmouth

Price: £5 (free for children aged 16 and under)

Tickets are available on the door from 5:30pm! Please bring a cash payment.


This event is not-for-profit and all proceeds will be split 50/50 for Pompey in the Community and Brain Tumour Research.

Join us for a football match in aid of charity! Last year, this event raised over £7,000, with staff defeating students 3-1. Who will you be supporting?
