Pompey set sights on training ground
Portsmouth chief executive Mark Catlin insists owning their own training ground is the club's eventual goal.
Pompey are preparing themselves for life in League Two after a third relegation in four seasons and on Wednesday agreed a deal to train at facilities at the University of Portsmouth.
Catlin told The News: "It's great to be re-engaging with the university after years of not being as close as we should be.
"This has been a moving process, we explored many facilities - overall there were seven or eight we looked at. However, it is still part of our mid-term strategy to own a training ground.
"A key part of club strategy is we want to create a legacy - and part of that is going to have your own training ground and not renting.
"In the meantime, this is a very good deal for us financially."
