Portsmouth Football Club is no longer in administration. The club is now officially owned by the Pompey Supporters' Trust. The club came very close to being liquidated over the past 14 months.
But now its future is looking more secure. The Football League must now decided when to deduct 10 points.

We have cleared the final hurdle: all of the paperwork has now been signed and the sale concluded. It has taken more than 14 months of hard work from all concerned to get here and there were many times over that period when I didn’t think we would make it; but we have, and Portsmouth Football Club can once again look forward to the future with optimism.
– Ashley Brown, Chairman of the Pompey Supporters’ Trust
What a momentous day! Once again Pompey fans have shown why they are some of the best in the land, we now have a club owned by people who truly love it, its fans. That’s how football is supposed to be.
– Iain McInnes, Chairman of Portsmouth Community Football Club
It has been a very difficult journey to get to this point but in the end we have achieved the right result. Now is the time for Pompey fans to get behind the club and we are looking forward to celebrating becoming a community club at Fratton Park this Saturday afternoon.
