During the 2005–06 English football season, Portsmouth competed in the FA Premier League. It was Portsmouth's third consecutive season in English football's top-flight.

Season summary[edit]

Manager Alain Perrin was sacked in November with Portsmouth struggling in the relegation zone.[1] He was replaced by Harry Redknapp, who had walked out of arch-rivals Southampton after being refused permission by the club to talk to Portsmouth about the managerial vacancy.[2] For a while it looked as if Redknapp's efforts were in vain, with Portsmouth eight points adrift of safety at the end of February. However, by the end of March that had been cut to just three (with a game in hand over seventeenth-placed West Bromwich Albion) and eventually Portsmouth managed to secure survival with a 2-1 win at Wigan Athletic to send West Brom and Birmingham City down.

Kit[edit]

Portsmouth signed a deal with Jako to produce the club's kit. Oki became the kit sponsors.
