Portsmouth Court Hearing Date Set

Thu 22nd Nov 2012 | Legal

PKF, administrators of Portsmouth Football Club have confirmed today that a court date has been set to resolve the issue over the sale of the club’s ground, Fratton Park.

A statement released by Trevor Birch, partner and joint administrator of Portsmouth read: “We can confirm that the hearing to determine the proposed sale of Fratton Park has been scheduled for 13 and 14 December in the High Court in London.

“This hearing is critical in deciding the future of Portsmouth Football Club: if the Court agrees with the sale value of Fratton Park, we can sell the club as a going concern to the PST; if we lose, liquidation will become the most likely option.” 

It was announced earlier this month that an agreement had been reached with the Pompey Supporters Trust (PST) to by the club but negotiations over the sale of the ground had stalled.

“This Court case is the culmination of months of hard work behind the scenes in trying to resolve the complex issues which this Administration has posed,” added Birch.

We will continue to work closely with the PST to finalise our case.”
