Pompey FA Cup Date Confirmed
Thursday, 29th Oct 2020 17:09
Town have confirmed that the FA Cup first round tie against Portsmouth at Portman Road will be played on Saturday 7th November with a 3pm kick-off.
The match will be played behind closed doors but will be available via the BBC and BT digital platforms with the sides yielding £12,500 each as a result.
The teams have drawn one another three times in the competition before, all in the last 15 seasons.
In both 2006 and 2008 then-Premier League Portsmouth beat the Blues 1-0 at Portman Road in third round ties, while in 2016 Pompey - by then in League Two - beat Town 2-1 in a third-round replay at Fratton Park after a 2-2 draw in Suffolk.
The Hampshire club went on to win the trophy for a second time in 2008, having previously carried it off in 1939.
Last season Town defeated Lincoln City 1-0 in a first round replay - ending their 15-match winless run in the competition stretching back to January 2010 - following a 1-1 draw at Portman Road, before losing 2-1 to Coventry in a second round replay at home having drawn 1-1 at St Andrew’s.
