Hope to own academy pitches for first time
1 August ~ Portsmouth are asking supporters to help them raise £250,000 so they can own their academy training pitches for the first time in their history. The campaign has so far received plenty of support from outside the club, including Gianluca Vialli, Paolo Rossi as well as former players Jamie Ashdown and John Sullivan. If successful it will be the largest crowd-funding project for a football club in the UK. They currently have ten days left to raise the final £75,000 and you can find more details here.
