Championship side Bolton Wanderers will come to Fratton Park for a pre-season friendly match to be played on Saturday, August 4th.
It is hardly the prestigous home friendly many Pompey fans would have been hoping for but beggars can't be choosers, I suppose. Ticket details will be announced closer to the match.
The season officially begins for Portsmouth with a Carling Cup first round tie on Tuesday, August 14th with the first league game coming on the following Saturday, August 18th.
