Portsmouth Plan New Ground

Portsmouth Football Club are planning to build a new football ground.

This fine old club with a distinguished history, known to many of their supporters as "Pompey", have been playing at Fratton Park for many years.

The plans for the new ground involve actually building it on top of the water, in a corner of Portsmouth Harbour.

The site lies between The Hard, where Portsmouth Harbour Station is situated, and the former H. M. S. Vernon, now the home of the Gunwharf Quays shopping centre and the iconic Spinnaker Tower.

It will be very easy to reach by public transport.
