Yesterday, the renowned English club Portsmouth defeated Barnsley at their home ground in the 44th round match of League One (the third division). Thanks to this victory, Portsmouth secured promotion.

In honor of this event, thousands of fans stormed onto the pitch immediately after the final whistle to celebrate.

Portsmouth will be competing in the Championship for the first time since the 2011/12 season, when they were relegated directly to League Two (the fourth division) due to financial issues. The club has spent the last 7 seasons in League One.

Portsmouth is well-known to long-standing fans who watched the English Premier League in the 2000s. Under the guidance of Harry Redknapp and other notable coaches, the club saw legends such as Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Nwankwo Kanu, David James, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Milan Baroš, Niko Kranjčar, and many others play for them.

The last time Portsmouth played in the Premier League was in the 2009/10 season. Their highest achievement in history was finishing eighth in the 2007/08 season.
