Pompey will welcome Championship side Peterborough to Fratton Park for a pre-season friendly this summer.
Darren Ferguson’s newly-promoted outfit – who have Dan Butler and Nathan Thompson in their ranks – are heading to the south coast on Saturday, July 31 (3pm kick-off).
It will be the first time fans have been inside the ground to watch the Blues in action since a League One draw with Fleetwood last December.
That was one of only two home games not played behind closed doors last term – with the other being a 2-0 victory over the Posh 10 days earlier.
Danny Cowley will also be taking his troops to Bristol City’s training ground for another friendly against Championship opposition on Tuesday, July 20 (2pm kick-off).
That comes after a training camp at The FA’s St George’s Park facility from Monday, July 12 until Saturday, July 17, with a game likely to take place on the Friday.
The regular trip to Westleigh Park to take on neighbours Havant & Waterlooville is being held on Saturday, July 10 (3pm kick-off).
Meanwhile, a Pompey XI will play games at local sides Gosport on Wednesday, July 21 and Bognor on Wednesday, July 28. Both fixtures kick-off at 7.30pm.
The club are also currently in the process of confirming some more friendly fixtures, which will be announced at a later date.
Ticket details for games will be announced in due course. The capacity for the match at Fratton Park will be dependent on Covid guidelines and essential stadium works.
