Danny and Nicky Cowley say they will work relentlessly to bring success to Fratton Park.
The duo signed new deals to remain as head coach and assistant a day after the 2020-21 season ended in disappointment with Pompey missing out on a play-off spot.
A statement from the brothers issued on the club website said: 'It has been one of the greatest privileges of our lives to be associated with this club. In the short time that we have been here, we have seen the love and passion that the people of Portsmouth have for this football club.
'With the support of Michael and the board of directors we will create a team that you can be proud of. We will work relentlessly to create a high-performance environment for the players, and consequently the club, to enjoy consistent success.
'Our ambition is to develop players and staff on a daily basis, while playing fast, attacking – and, most importantly, winning – football. For this club, today is about new beginnings. While we will always take learnings from the past, we are absolutely determined to live in the moment and enjoy the challenges that this journey will bring.
'One thing is for sure – we cannot do this alone. It is your support that defines us as a football club and we will need you beside us every step of the way.'
Pompey chairman Michael Eisner told the website: 'We are thrilled to continue with the Cowley brothers leading our team on the pitch. Their dedication and hard work, plus their exciting style of play, makes them a perfect match for Portsmouth and our fans. And I thank them for coming in on such short notice to help us this season.'
Chief executive Mark Catlin added: 'Everyone is naturally hurting at this moment in time, but securing the services of Danny and Nicky is a huge positive. I am sure that they will be both backed by the club and our supporters as they plot a course for the 2021/22 season.'
Pompey also said discussions would take place with players and backroom staff this week and the club will update supporters in due course.
