SATURDAY’S Sky Bet League One match against Scunthorpe United is the final game of the 2018-19 Sky Bet League One season – 274 days after the first.

THE game kicks off at 5.30pm. However, given it would help you, and us, if you could please arrive early and ease the anticipated pressure on the Home Park turnstiles. 

TURNSTILES at the Devonport end, Lyndhurst Road side and Barn Park end all open at 3.30pm. There will be late gates at: the Devonport end, Turnstile 6, which will remain open until five minutes after the second half kicks off; the Lyndhurst Road side, Turnstile 15, which will stay open until 6pm; and, for Scunthorpe supporters, the Barn Park end, Turnstile 22, which will be open for collections until 6pm.

THE game is SOLD OUT. Please do not attempt travel to Home Park, or attempt to gain admission, if you do not have a ticket.

ALL tickets for collection for Argyle supporters will be available from the Home Park Ticket Office at the Devonport end of the ground, behind the 1930s art deco façade. Travelling Scunthorpe United fans will be able to collect their tickets from the Barn Park end.

PLEASE make sure you sit in the seat that corresponds to the number on your ticket. Tickets will be rigorously checked to ensure this. Anyone found in a seat or an area where they should not be will be asked to move to the appropriate seat.

ANY supporter sitting in, or attempting to gain access to, any area of Home Park reserved for opposition fans will be ejected.

SUPPORTERS may be searched on entry to Home Park. This will include the use of search wands; specially-trained sniffer dogs; and other screening methods.

SPACE in the club’s Higher Home Park Car-Park is severely restricted and for permit-holders only. There is free car-parking in the Outland Road Park & Ride Car-Park 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. Our advice is to use public transport whenever possible.

RECEPTION at Home Park is in the Ticket Office and will be open from 9am on match-day.

THE Superstore at Home Park will also be open from 9am on match-day, fully stocked, with the 2019-20 home kit. Retail outlets in the Devonport end and Lyndhurst Road side will open when the ground does, and there will be pop-up shops in the Green Taverners’s Suite and Hospitality area.

THE double award-winning Pilgrim match-day programme, costing £3, will be on sale online; from sellers; and from the stadium catering kiosks.

HOSPITALITY and Match-Day Sponsorship activities take place in the Life Centre. For further information, please contact the Commercial Operations team.

IT is a criminal offence to enter a sports ground whilst drunk and to bring alcohol into the ground. Anyone trying to enter Home Park whilst drunk will be refused entry and anyone found attempting to bring alcohol into the ground will be handed to the police. There is a three-year football banning order linked to these offences.

IT is also a criminal offence to enter the field of play. Pitch incursions pose a threat to the safety of players, officials and spectators and will result in the Pilgrims being disciplined by the Football Association. Such incidents have resulted in clubs being charged and subsequently fined up to £200,000 by Regulatory Commissions.

FOLLOWING incidents involving smoke bombs and missiles in our games this season at Southend and Gillingham, and at home to Coventry City, the Football Association has warned the club that it may have to consider disciplinary action if they receive further reports of spectator misconduct. Under the terms of the EFL Club Charter, and our club policy, any fans being found guilty of possession or use of a pyrotechnic device will face a minimum three-season ban from Home Park and all other EFL grounds.

THE following articles must not be brought into the ground: knives, fireworks, smoke canisters, air-horns, flares, weapons, dangerous or hazardous items, laser devices, bottles, glass vessels, cans, poles and any article that might be used as a weapon and/or compromise public safety. Anyone found to be in possession of any of these articles inside the ground could face a criminal prosecution and will receive an immediate and indefinite banning order from Home Park.
