Maintenance News – 3G Pitch has reopened!

3G Pitch refurbishment at Langstone completed ahead of schedule!

Work at our outdoor sports facility in Langstone Student Village is now complete.
The work has been completed 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
Our 3G Pitch and other facilities at Langstone  are now available for bookings.


Located at Langstone Student Village, the pitch is a football and rugby combination pitch from Greenfields. The pitch was originally opened in 2013, costing approximately £1million to install. It has been refurbished with the very latest synthetic surface, which adheres to the most recent 2016 FIFA and IRB performance specifications.

The pitch can accommodate football, rugby and lacrosse, and is one of the largest 3G pitches in Hampshire – the football pitch alone is the same size as Wembley.

Head of Sport and Recreation, Paul Tilley, said: “This is a very high quality facility and I’m delighted that we have been able to install such a brilliant surface within a tight 8 week period, minimising disruption to our users. It is a fantastic facility for our students and the local community, and something the University can be proud to have invested in.”

Langstone Sports Village has previously been used by Portsmouth Football Club as their training ground. Currently, the site is home to all University of Portsmouth football teams. Portsmouth FC Academy, Portsmouth FC Ladies, Portsmouth Nomads, City of Portsmouth Hockey and Portsmouth College also use the facilities regularly.

The facility is now available for hire. Grass pitches, astro turf pitches, tennis courts and netball courts are also available to book at Langstone Sports Village. We welcome bookings from sports clubs and community groups.
