Argyle v Newport - Ready Reckoner
MONDAY’S match at Home Park is as big as it gets.
For the first time in more than a decade, Argyle stand on the precipice of promotion.
The Pilgrims need just one more point to exit Sky Bet League Two and continue to bring on back the good times to Britain’s Ocean City.
Standing in their way are resurgent, in-form, Newport County, battling for points to stay alive – and we know, from bitter experience, how hard that teams battling for survival can fight.
Pilgrims far and wide are descending on the Theatre of Greens, intent on cheering Derek Adams and his team to the echo.
More than 14,000 will cram into Home Park – for a League Two game, remember – displaying passion and emotion that will be unmatched anywhere in the country.
To help you plan your day, we are offering the following advice:
THERE is only limited home-ticket availability, and there is no pay-on-the-gate facility for home fans.
A FEW tickets remain available to buy on line at www.eticketing.co.uk/pafc. Once these are sold, no more tickets will be placed on line. All tickets thereafter must be bought at the Home Park Ticket Office, which opens at 9am on match-day.
THE match kicks off at 3pm. However, it would help you, and us, if you could please arrive early and ease the anticipated pressure on the Home Park turnstiles.
PRE-MATCH entertainment is being provided from 2.10pm by The Horsemen of the Apocalypse, an acclaimed, high-octane ensemble whose hypnotic, heady cocktail of Flamenco, Latin, Jazz and Acoustic Rock has created a whole new genre of music, and been seen by millions across the world live and on TV.
USE public transport, whenever possible.
FREE car-parking is available adjacent to the ground, but this will fill up very early. Street parking in the area is available, but please take care to note local restrictions.
TURNSTILES to the Mayflower Grandstand, Devonport end, Lyndhurst, Barn Park end and Family Zone for All all open at 1.30pm.
PLEASE make sure you sit in the seat that corresponds to the number on your ticket. Anyone found in a seat or an area where they should not be could be ejected from the ground.
RECEPTION at Home Park will be open from 9am on match-day.
THE Superstore at Home Park will also be open from 9am on match-day.
THE award-winning Pilgrim match-day programme, costing £3, will be on sale.
