Portsmouth Matchday travel arrangements

Please find information below to assist your travel to the Portsmouth match on Tuesday 18th July.


If you are travelling to the Island by ferry you will either be sailing with Wightlink or Red Funnel.

If you are bringing a vehicle to the Island for this match it is strongly recommended that you make a booking as it is unlikely you would board in time to see the match as priority is given to booked travellers.

Foot passengers can also make a booking, this is again strongly recommended if travelling at peak commuter hours.

Wightlink operate two car ferry routes, Portsmouth to Fishbourne and Lymington to Yarmouth. They also operate a high speed foot passenger service from Portsmouth to Ryde.
An additional sailing at 22:30 from Ryde Pier Head has been provided for Portsmouth FC fans ONLY for their return journey home.
Foot passengers can also travel on the car ferry services to Yarmouth and Fishbourne.
