South Stand Planning Application

Blues to install new lighting and television gantry

7 June 2019

South Stand

Portsmouth FC have submitted a planning application, which includes alterations to the roof of the South Stand.

This involves building a new television gantry and the addition of eight t-bar light frames along the main truss.

New lighting – a mix of LED and halogen bulbs – is being installed, which adheres to EFL requirements and takes into account any potential need for VAR at Fratton Park.

This new lighting is being installed during the close season, with the television gantry planned for the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

The iconic Archibald Leitch-designed South Stand is also undergoing a recladding programme, which is set to be completed for the start of the forthcoming season.

Pompey would like to thank fans and local residents for their continued support while this work is being undertaken.
