Planning a trip to Fratton Park?
Nicknamed ‘The Old Girl’ by supporters, Fratton Park is the original home ground of Portsmouth Football Club, which was founded on 5th April 1898.
It is the only English ground in professional football that is not located on the mainland, as it was built on Portsea Island. It is one of two grounds outside of London to ever hold a match for the Olympic Games, and it was the first football ground in the country to play with artificial floodlights.
Getting to Fratton Park
Fratton railway station is a 10-minute walk from the ground and can be found on the Portsmouth Direct Line linking to London Waterloo and London Victoria stations. Fratton railway station can also be reached via lines running from Brighton, Cardiff, Bristol, Southampton and Bournemouth.
By car, Fratton Park is close to both the M27 west and A27 east, and not so far from the A3(M) to London and M25 orbiting London.
