Match Tickets

From season tickets to flexi tickets to match tickets and away travel, our friendly Home Park Ticket Office team are here to help.

Tickets for all Argyle matches are sold on a priority basis, with season ticket holders receiving priority over flexi ticket holders, who in-turn receive priority over general sale. As a general rule, tickets first go on sale between three to five weeks before the match is due to be played.

Season ticket holders' seats are reserved for them for every home Sky Bet League One game.

You can buy tickets all day, every day, online here

You can visit or call the Home Park Ticket Office on 01752 907700, click here to check Ticket Office opening hours.

You can also contact us at tickets@pafc.co.uk

The match day experience is important to everyone. We appreciate that disabilities are wide-ranging and that not all are visible.

Getting to Home Park

When you match stunning architecture and beautiful ambience with outstanding facilities and impeccable service, what you have is Home Park Stadium.

A venue that redefines hospitality in the South West, setting the bar just that little bit higher than it has ever been before in the region.

Not only is this venue an impressive place to watch first class professional football with the Club Argyle corporate membership, it’s also one of the most iconic venues for holding a conference, staging an event, or marking an important occasion.

As a venue, Home Park Stadium now delivers on every possible level, all visitors are assured that above anything else, their time spent here will be memorable.

Home Park Stadium is based in the Milehouse area of the city, adjacent to the green space of Central Park.

Car Parking

Outland Road Car Park, adjacent to Home Park, is a very large – and free! – car park.

It is managed by the local council, and is typically a park-and-ride car park serving Plymouth city centre. It is free to use on match days, but will obviously begin to fill up very early for many fixtures, especially for high-profile matches.

 

Argyle Merchandise & Shop

The Argyle Superstore is located between the corner of the Devonport End and Mayflower Grandstand, behind the traditional Home Park turnstiles which were once the main entry point to the stadium. It is open from 9am on the morning of the match until 30 minutes after the final whistle.

There is also a dedicated retail outlet on the corner of the Devonport End and Lyndhurst Road stand, selling Puma merchandise - including the Pilgrims' replica kit and training wear.

You can shop online 24/7 at argylesuperstore.co.ukwith delivery and in-store click and collect available. If you choose to order online to be collected at Home Park on a match day, please ensure you complete your order at least three days prior to the match.

What's Nearby?

Located in Britain's picturesque 'Ocean City', Home Park Stadium is a short walk, or ride, into the city centre, with the stunning and historic waterfront within walking distance.

The stadium itself lies adjacent to Central Park, a large, communal green space with a number of playing fields, community cafes, and walking routes. Just beyond the park lies the city's train station, and the city centre a short walk further.

The stadium takes card payments throughout, and the nearest cashpoint is located at the ESSO petrol station just across Outland Road - a five minute walk from the stadium.

 

 

Food & Beverage

A number of food and beverage outlets surround the stadium, all open on match days, with food and refreshment kiosks open throughout the concourses inside the stadium. All of our kiosks serve a wide selection of food and drink.

We take cash and card throughout the stadium, although we encourage supporters to use card or contactless payment wherever possible to reduce waiting times.

Options include hot and cold drinks, beers, pasties, pies, burgers, sausage rolls, and so much more.

If you are interested in upgrading your match day experience to sample some hospitality, including first-class dining with Club Argyle, contact our hospitality team on hospitality@pafc.co.uk.

Safeguarding

Plymouth Argyle Football Club is committed to providing a positive, inclusive experience for young people who come into contact with the Argyle family.

Plymouth Argyle is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and adults at risk and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.

A child centred approach is fundamental to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of every child. PAFC’s Safeguarding Children Policy and Safeguarding Adults at Risk Policy are linked to ensure the safety and protection of vulnerable groups. In combination with our other safeguarding policies we provide robust safeguarding procedures for everyone involved in delivering our activities.

Security and Entry Process

The club takes its commitment to supporter security extremely seriously. Forming part of the requirements of our new risk-based safety certificate, and work with the Counter Terrorism Unit, the club has implemented enhanced security measures, with the safety of all fans, guests, and officials at Home Park at the centre of our thinking.

Supporters can expect to be searched by our security team as they enter the stadium. The club will ensure that any searches are undertaken by security members of the same gender.

Bringing bags to the stadium is actively discouraged. However, fans arriving at Home Park with a small personal bag (for example, medical bags or handbags) capable of being stowed under seats is permitted. Please note, supporters should expect this to be searched before entry. 

It’s likely that enhanced checks will have an effect on entry times, although staff and security will work as fast as we can to provide entry to supporters. With this in mind, we ask that supporters arrive in plenty of time to prevent queues forming as kick-off approaches.

COVID-19 Guidance

While we are absolutely thrilled to be opening the doors of the Theatre of Greens for an Argyle fixture once again, we ask the Green Army to consider their fellow supporters and club staff throughout their visit.

Argyle staff will continue to wear face coverings wherever possible – particularly in busy and enclosed areas - and we ask that supporters do the same, although it is not a condition of entry. 

With this in mind, we regretfully request that supporters refrain from congregating around first-team players and staff for selfies and autographs.

The Argyle Superstore will take the same approach, with retail staff wearing face coverings. However, the capacity of the Superstore will be raised to a maximum of 30 supporters at any one time.

We also ask all supporters to consider taking a COVID-19 lateral flow test before attending Home Park – these can be ordered online by clicking here. As above, this is not a condition of entry. 

In order to avoid large queues at peak times (e.g half-time), we advise supporters to plan ahead for toilet breaks, using facilities when they are likely to be less busy, and following the one-way system laid out.

Supporters are reminded that they absolutely should not attend Home Park if they, or anyone they are in close contact with, are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
