The home of American Football on the South Coast

The Portsmouth Dreadnoughts were founded in 2012 and over the last 9 years, the club had gone from strength to strength. From humble beginnings in a muddy field in Southsea, the Dreadnoughts now boasts a men’s team, a championship-winning women’s team as well as a growing youth programme.

The Portsmouth Dreadnoughts men’s and youth teams are based at Cockleshell Community Sports Club, while the women’s team play at Havant Rugby Club.

When I took over as head coach for the Dreadnoughts, I inherited a team on the rise. I intend on continuing the ride to the top.

As a community club, we actively seek to engage with local businesses and organisations in order to promote participation in sports within the area. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, we’d love to hear from you.
