Grand Days Out

Mayflower Members Making Smooth Transition

27 February 2018

FAN-TASTIC!

That has been the reaction to supporters to the news that the Mayflower Grandstand will be out of commission next season. 

On Sunday, we broke the news that despite our best endeavours, the Grandstand, the Mayflower seating, and the disabled enclosure will all be closed for the whole of next season before opening for the 2019-20 campaign with a range of fantastic new facilities for fans.‎ 

As a result, current season-ticket holders who have a seat in these areas of the stadium will need to relocate to another part of the Theatre of Greens for the 2018-19 season.  

We set aside the whole of this week – Monday, February 26 to Saturday, March 3 inclusive – exclusively for them to reserve an available seat for next season in the Devonport end or along the Lyndhurst side of Home Park.‎

The Green Army has rallied round in tremendous fashion. On day one, more than a third of Mayflower migrants had arranged to move seats to Blocks 1-14. 

Many came to Home Park in person to be shown around by a team who are on hand all week to escort supporters to available seats and answer individual enquiries. 

We have now untangled some red-tape which allows supporters to choose a seat in Block 15. These are available only to supporters moving from the Mayflower. 

Remember, we are not asking anyone to buy their seat now, nor even put down a deposit – that will come after the March 5 announcement of an exciting new range of ticket options and prices for next season. We merely want supporters to let us know which seat they would like and we will hold it until later in the summer when season-tickets go on general sale. 

They can reserve their seat by email, at tickets@pafc.co.uk; by ’phone, on 01752 907700; or by visiting the Ticket Office in person. 

A diagram of Home Park which shows every vacant seatwill also be posted outside the Home Park Ticket Office and here at www.pafc.co.uk, along with photographs showing the view of the Home Park pitch from several points in each of the 15 blocks with available seating. These will be regularly updated as seats become taken.

The times for personal viewing are:

Wednesday, February 28:           9am-noon
Thursday March 1:                       3-6pm
Friday, March 2:                          10am-2pm
Saturday, March 3:                      10am-2pm

The Ticket Office opening hours have also been extended for the week.

They are: 

Wednesday, February 28:          9am-5pm
Thursday March 1:                      9am-8pm
