Milan Mandaric will step down as Pompey chairmen Monday. Bolton at home will be his last match at Pompey.
"My last match as Chairman will be against Bolton and though it will be a very emotional occasion for me I will leave immensely satisfied and happy about what I have achieved and whose hands I leave this club in," Mandaric told the club's website.
"Already Alexandre Gaydamak has made his own impressive mark on the club which I fully expected and applaud. "It is now right that a man who is fiercely committed to the interests of Portsmouth F.C. and its fans should be allowed to pen his own exclusive chapter as he takes things to the new heights I know he will achieve.
"This is the established Premier League side which I promised when I came and from that establishment there are now new heights to reach which Alexandre will take the club onwards and upwards to.
"I will always be just a phone call away and will only too happily advise and help should the club need. I also hope to come back to matches as often as possible so in that sense it is not goodbye, but merely au revoir. This club and its supporters can never leave my heart whatever I go on to do in football, whether it be in this country or across the world, and both will always be part of me and my life."
Vital Pompey will run tribute articles on Monday.
