East Stand Closure for Portsmouth Home Game

Update from BFCST on tonight’s announcement.

We support the club’s decision to prioritise supporter safety ahead of tomorrow night’s fixture at Oakwell.

As deeply frustrating as this is, through our conversations with the club earlier today we know every possible solution was explored before a full closure was announced. Unfortunately, the safety of every supporter in the East Stand couldn’t be guaranteed and therefore the club were left with no other option.

Whilst we’re supportive of this decision, it does highlight the need for the football club and council to come to an agreement on the lease at Oakwell, to ensure ongoing repairs and care of the stadium is an ongoing priority for years to come.

We encourage those supporters sadly affected to arrange their ticket swap or refund as early as possible tomorrow to help with what will likely be a challenging process for those working in the Oakwell offices. From kick off, let’s get behind Michael Duff and the players, and keep the momentum building from the last two months.
