Portsmout have played at Fratton Park since they were formed in 1898, and it remains one of the most characterful stadiums in the country.

The main stand was designed by well known football architect Archibald Leitchm and was described as an "Ornate Pavillion complete with Clocktower" which is similar to Fulham's Craven Cottage.

The Fratton End was opened in 1997 and is the most modern of the stands in the stadium, as well as the tallest. The seats have the outline of Jimmy Dickinson, the player with most appearances for the club. The North and South Stands are both two tiered, while the Milton End, which will host our fans next week, was once the only roofless stand in the Premier League.

For the fastest route to Fratton Park, follow the A30, A35, A31 and M27 to Mile End Road in Portsmouth. From here take the A2030 to Frogmore Road in Southsea. The car park at the stadium is reserved for home fans, which means visiting supporters are left with the choice of either street parking which is generally available due to a lack of parking restrictions near the stadium, or on of the matchday car parks which can be found at the Miltoncross academy or on Velder Avenue.


Trains from Exeter St David’s take around three to three and a half hours, with a change of service at either Salisbury or Westbury. However, while there are plenty of outbound services on the day, the last suitable train back from Portsmouth Harbour leaves at 8.23pm.


Popular with away fans is the Good Companion pub, which is on the main A2030 about a five minute walk away from the ground. It is a large pub serving real ales and had a good mix of home and away support. Other nearby pubs include the Brewers Arms, and the Milton Arms, both found on Milton Road.
