Portsmouth Football Club has endured a surreal roller coaster ride over the past 8 – 10 years.
From the heights if winning the FA Cup in 2008 and competing in Europe against AC Milan to successive relegations and financial meltdown, the club and its fans have been through the mill.
Led by Michael Dyer, a lifelong supporter, the Verisona Law team was instrumental in saving the club from oblivion, by creating a community ownership model that has drawn international acclaim.
Crowd-funding a new academy
We are still contributing to the running of the club and are delighted to give some web space to its latest campaign: raising £250,000 to purchase a training ground for the first team and academy.
Amazingly this will be the first training ground Portsmouth Football Club has ever owned and will provide a valuable resource with which to develop talented youngsters and train the first team.
Every donation of any size is gratefully received and there are incentives ranging from official Pompey wristbands to season-long director’s box hospitality, depending on the size of your pledge.
If you would like to donate or simply find out more about this innovative crowd-funding campaign, please go to www.tifosy.com
If you need advice on any aspect of buying, running, rescuing or owning a football club, please get in touch.
