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 are main club partners, and shirt sponsors, of Portsmouth Football Club. The club are currently unable to have any spectators within their stadium. Discounted match tickets are usually available to students and staff members of the University for all of Portsmouth Football Club’s League One home matches.

    The University’s sponsorship is part of a three-year deal as the Club’s Main Partner, building on our successful year as their Official Education Sponsor, with joined-up research, work opportunities for University students and outreach to inspire children at local schools and colleges. We also host an annual charity event at Fratton Park each year.

  • 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 9am 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.
