PREPARATORY work for the eagerly anticipated rebuilding of Home Park's much-loved Mayflower grandstand are gathering pace, with the demolition of some outbuildings expected to start in early April.
This work will begin after our Sky Bet League One home clash with fellow play-off hopefuls Peterborough United on Saturday, April 7.
Such an early start to the preparation stage of the building work would mean that the current disabled enclosure may have to be closed for the remainder of the season after the Peterborough game.
Consequently, a section of the nearby Block 1 of the Devonport end has been reserved for ambulant disabled supporters and their carers who currently use the disabled enclosure and who can contact the Home Park Ticket Office for complimentary match-day tickets for the remainder of the season.
Despite working closely with the Plymouth Argyle Disabled Supporters Association, regrettably we have not been able to agree a solution to the provision of an alternative raised platform for wheelchair users whilst the building work is in progress.
These fans can also contact the Ticket Office for complimentary tickets for the remainder of the season and to discuss their options for next season.
The aim of starting work on the Mayflower grandstand before the end of the season is to enable everything to be in place for the start of the 2019-20 campaign, when wheelchair userswill be able to follow the Pilgrims from a raised area in the new Grandstand which will provide one of the best views in the ground. These will be available to renewers, new season-ticket holders and past season-ticket holders alike.
Club Secretary & Head of Inclusion Zac Newton will be available in the PADSA lounge and disabled enclosure prior to Friday’s game against Southend to answer any questions that disabled supporters have about the new arrangements.
