Fratton Park is an association football ground in the English port city of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. It is the original home of Portsmouth F.C., who were founded on 5 April 1898. Uniquely, the stadium is the only one in English professional football that is not on the mainland island of Great Britain, as it is built on Portsea Island, where the city of Portsmouth is located. The name Fratton Park was chosen to understate its true distance to Fratton railway station, roughly one mile to the west of the stadium in Fratton, despite the football ground's actual location in Milton.

  • Fratton Park is an association football ground in the English port city of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. It is the original home of Portsmouth F.C., who were founded on 5 April 1898. Uniquely, the stadium is the only one in English professional football that is not on the mainland island of Great Britain, as it is built on Portsea Island, where the city of Portsmouth is located. The ground was built in 1899 upon on the site of a potato field in Milton, a farming village which later became a residential district of Portsmouth, as the city expanded across Portsea Island during the twentieth century. The name Fratton Park was chosen to understate its true distance to Fratton railway station, roughly one mile to the west of the stadium in Fratton, despite the football ground's actual location in Milton. Fratton Park was first opened on a public open day on Tuesday 15 August 1899. The first ever football match at the ground took place on Wednesday 6 September 1899; a 2-0 friendly win against Southampton FC, attended by 4,141 supporters. Since its inception, the ground has been affectionately nicknamed "The Old Girl" by Portsmouth supporters. The stadium has been visually branded in-house as "Fortress Fratton" in recent years; the ground has grown a reputation for its high attendances and powerful footballing atmosphere, attributable to that of many larger capacity stadiums. The ground is also located within the Anglican parish of St. James' in Milton, Portsmouth.
