The Portsmouth FC Disabled Supporters Association
The Portsmouth FC Disabled Supporters Association (Pompey DSA) was formed in 2013 to help achieve certain aims for every disabled supporter visiting PFC (Portsmouth Football Club).
These aims include being a voice for supporters of all disability groups. Working alongside Portsmouth FC to improve facilities, inclusion and welfare of all disabled supporters. Also enriching lives of disabled people through sport, social inclusion and raising disability awareness.
Our Membership (£10 annual fee) is open to all disabled fans as well as non disabled fans carers, family and friends
We meet twice a month in both Portsmouth South and North, based at both Pompey in the community for a Drop in for coffee & chat and Howard Rd Community Centre (Hilsea) along with additional events and trips. (Please see below for more details on monthly meets) We also help provide the Club with equipment and services to help improve the match day experience for ALL.
Pompey DSA are honoured and proud to have Pompey Legend Alan Knight MBE as our ambassador who not only has a shared love for the game and especially Portsmouth FC, Alan also has a clear understanding of how disability can effect us all and those around us after he suffered Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss (SSHL). Alan regularly comes down to our meetings for coffee and chat and some fantastic stories from his former playing days.
We hope you can join us soon at one of our meets or events,
If you would like any help, advice or more details please get

You can also find more from us at the Pompey Bus
at most home matches.
