Another sell-out crowd is expected at Home Park, and fans attending the match can read our guide below.
Fans' Guide | Crystal Palace (H)
Tickets for this match are sold out, with another bumper crowd expected at Home Park as we welcome Premier League opposition.
Turnstiles will open two hours before kick-off, from 5:45pm. Supporters are advised to enter through the turnstile identified on their match ticket. However, if neighbouring turnstiles have shorter queues, supporters are permitted to enter these to speed up access to the stadium.
This is an all-ticket fixture for both home and away fans, and no tickets will be able to be purchased on the day.
The Beacon Electrical Mayflower Grandstand Fan Zone will open from 5pm for this fixture.
This has been introduced to continue to improve the matchday experience for the loyal Green Army and provide further services for those fans who like to get into Home Park early.
The Fan Zone will serve further food and drink options, provide seating and undercover areas.
Supporters are reminded about the importance of adhering to ground regulations.
These include pitch incursions, the use of pyrotechnics and missile throwing, as well as any form of discriminatory behaviour towards players on the pitch, staff or your fellow supporters.
Fans from both clubs are also reminded that persistent standing throughout Home Park is not accepted and supporters will be told to take their seats throughout the game.
Our special matchday bus services were introduced this season on a trial basis to give supporters' further access to Home Park from throughout the city.
However, these will only run for league matches and will not be in operation for Tuesday's match against Crystal Palace.
Kiosks throughout the stadium and all hospitality areas will become fully cashless, with cash accepted in all other parts of Home Park Stadium.
Cashless kiosks and hospitality areas bring a number of benefits to the club, but also supporters. These include:
- Increased speed of service and shorter queuing times
- Improved hygiene with less cash handling taking place
- A cost and time saving impact for the club
We would encourage supporters to continue to use card, contactless card or mobile payments such as Apple Pay throughout the stadium where possible.
Although we experienced difficulties on the first home match of the season following an issue at the supplier's end, these have now been rectified with a number of solutions put in place to ensure matchday experience is seamless for all that visit Home Park.
Sorry for the inconvenience but Coronation Avenue is temporarily closed while work is completed on the Central Park Ponds Project.
There will be diversions available around Jubilee Row or Pounds Park while the work is ongoing. Please plan ahead of time for the diversions to ensure you reach Home Park in suitable time.
Supporters are reminded that should the scores be level at the end of 90 minutes tomorrow, the game will go straight to penalties.
No extra time will be played at all, with the winner decided after the penalty shoot-out.
Concession kiosks will be open, serving a range of food and beverages.
There will be a discount of 25% on all products purchased from food and beverage kiosks inside the stadium between 5:45pm-6:30pm.
Kiosks in the stadium will be completely cashless for the 2023/24 season to reduce queuing times. Although we do also have alternative measures in place after Saturday's technical difficulties.
Outside the stadium
On your approach to Home Park, you will notice a number of external catering venues offering hot food and refreshments. Please note that prices and menus at these outlets are not controlled by the club, and are subject to change.
Inside the stadium
Our food and beverage kiosks throughout the stadium serve a range of food, beverages, and alcoholic drinks, stadium-wide. A reminder that kiosks inside the stadium are now cashless.

Outland Road Car Park, adjacent to Home Park is a very large – and free! – car park. It is council-run, and is typically a park-and-ride car park into the city. It is free to use on match-days, but will obviously begin to fill up very early for many fixtures, especially local derbies, Bank Holiday fixtures, etc. Plymouth Pride is also taking place this weekend so we are expecting the Car Park to be even busier.
Additional street parking is available surrounding Home Park, but please be mindful of local residents, park sensibly, and be aware of any parking restrictions and permit areas. Considerations should include:
- Don’t park on double yellow lines
- Please avoid dropped kerbs in front of people’s houses
- Please avoid parking on junctions
- Please display a blue badge if you have one
There are also several large pay and display car parks in the city centre, which is within walking distance of Home Park, but not advised for those who struggle to walk beyond short distances.
Supporters should be prepared to be searched by our security team as they enter the stadium.
Wherever possible, we will ensure that 'wand' searches are also undertaken by members of the same gender. If that is not the case upon entry, and you feel at all uncomfortable, please raise this with a member of the security team - who will make the necessary arrangements.
As with all major sporting events, 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.
We ask that supporters arrive in plenty of time to avoid queues forming as kick-off approaches.
For any accessibility or match-day support queries, our dedicated Disability Liaison Officer can be contacted on email@example.com.
Copies of our award-winning matchday programme, The Pilgrim, are once again available around the stadium for purchase at £2, while a limited number will also be available to purchase from the Argyle Superstore.
Sensory packs, which include a drawstring bag, ear defenders, fidget spinners, and a sensory ball, as well as further match-day information, are now available for children and young adults who need them – free of charge.
The Evergreen Suite, adjacent to the Home Park Ticket Office, is open ahead of the game.
Not signed up as an Evergreen member yet? No problem, you can speak to our dedicated supporter engagement team to find out more.
Members of the team will be on hand to share more detail about the scheme, which sees members contribute directly to funding projects within the club's first-team and Academy operations, and help supporters sign up, if they would like to.

The Argyle Superstore, located next to the Home Park Ticket Office by the main entrance to the Mayflower Grandstand, is open until 30 minutes after full-time.
There will be no shop in the Lyndhurst.
Complimentary sanitary products are available in all female and accessible toilets across Home Park Stadium.
Argyle are intent on providing a safe and welcoming environment for all visitors who attend matches.
