Friday 24 May – University of Portsmouth Students vs Staff Charity Football Match

The annual University of Portsmouth Students vs Staff Charity Football match is back for 2019 at the home of Portsmouth FC, Fratton Park!

Now in its 4th year, the students versus staff football match demonstrates how the University can come together to give back to the local community and beyond. The game will be played on Friday 24 May, which can be the perfect break from revision, or the perfect way to celebrate the end of exams.
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 £250 for charity. Last year, this event raised over £16,000 and we’re hoping 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.
