Portsmouth 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.
Between January and August 2022, work to refurbish and reprofile the North and South stands took place and when completed restored Fratton Park's capacity to approximately 20,000. Work to refurbish and restore the 3,200 capacity to the Milton End began on 2 November 2022.
