Administrators’ first sale is Pompey’s irony detector
Cash-strapped Portsmouth are offering fans the chance to pay for financial advice from the club which has been run into the ground with crippling debts. Supporters wanting to experience the same frugality that got Pompey more than £70 million in the red can visit the new PFC Financial Services tab on the club’s website.
The website claims Portsmouth FC Financial Services “is a new arm to the club where our aim is to bring you some everyday financial products and solutions that our supporters and families have need for.”
Would-be Pompey owners can take out Portsmouth FC-branded credit cards to run up debts of their own. And, seemingly oblivious to the massive amount owed to HM Revenues and Customs, the banner advert on the site boasts: “Tax free savings for Pompey fans!”
