We’re sport lovers, we love playing any kind of sport we can. From that love of sport comes an understanding that we can achieve our goals better with other people, be it on the court, pitch or at work. We work with a lot of services, companies and programmes and are always looking for innovative ways to offer more to our members and users. If you feel your company or service may compliment or enhance our offering to our members we’d love to hear from you. To partner with us, please email sport@port.ac.uk.

Take a look below at some of the partnerships we already have.

Our Partnerships

  • Portsmouth Football Club

    The University of Portsmouth is the Main Club Partner of Portsmouth Football Club.  The two organisations have been working together successfully over the past four years and recently signed a deal to renew for a further three seasons.

    The University’s logo will continue to appear on the front of Pompey shirts for all first team games and the partnership will also deliver joined-up research, work opportunities for University students and outreach activity to inspire children at local schools and colleges. 

    We also host an annual charity event at Fratton Park each year and discounted match tickets are available to students and staff members of the University for all of Portsmouth Football Club’s League One home matches.

  • Southsea parkrun

    Southsea parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all abilities and ages. Sport and Recreation provided the start up funding for the event nearly 6 years ago, to help keep Portsmouth active. It takes place every Saturday at 9.00am on Southsea seafront. This all-inclusive running environment is great for a social run, or used as a personal training run. See the website above on how to register for your first run.

  • Working in partnership with local schools and community groups, we host regular drop-in football sessions for girls between the ages of 5 and 11. Thanks to funding from the Football Association, we’re working to get more females active. Please visit our website for locations and the latest sessions. We also run football teams for boys and girls between the ages of 11 and 16.
