Project 35 fixture

This match has been selected as the third dedicated Project 35 fixture and will present another opportunity for the Argyle community to come together in the fight against food poverty in Plymouth, Devon, and Cornwall.

The game against the Potters is our first dedicated Project 35 Takeover fixture of the season, with supporters and members of the community again encouraged to bring items of in-date, non-perishable food to Home Park before the game. We are particularly in need of tinned food, UHT milk, and toiletries. The ambitious aim will be to surpass our incredible previous donation totals of 1.3 tonnes in April, and 2.3 tonnes in October last year – an overwhelming response and a testament to the generosity of our communities.

Donations will be delivered to Argyle Community Trust’s Community Larder, located at Manadon Sports Hub, to support those in need ahead of the festive period. This represents a vital time where demand is at its highest and the foodbank network is faced with the uncertainty of whether it will have enough resource to meet demand.

The Community Larder runs every week and is currently supporting 80 local people in need with food and supplies provided through our charity network. To find out more, or to sign-up, email

Project 35, in partnership with Ginsters, had a profound impact in its first season. As well as the huge success of the fan appeals, and winning Best Corporate Social Responsibility Scheme at the Football Business Awards, the project has delivered:

  • Over 35,000 meals to those most in need
  • 3,000 volunteering hours from ‘Pledge 35’ volunteers
  • 307 hampers to the most deprived areas of Plymouth
  • 10,000 Ginsters products to those living in temporary accommodation
  • Over 400 hours of community volunteering from Ginsters staff
  • 320 match tickets, 20 mascot experiences, and 212 Argyle shirts gifted
  • Free education and wellbeing sessions to 5,922 children with 13,219 hampers gifted
  • Education programmes and social action projects around food poverty to three schools
  • Enrichment days for 24 students who were at risk of exclusion
  • Adult education sessions and food workshops for young people
  • Vital poverty awareness raised

New initiatives are taking place across the 2023/24 season and are being launched weekly in the fight against poverty. 

The food van and Project 35 gazebo will be located at the Devonport End from 12 pm on matchday. Pledge 35 volunteers, Ginsters staff, and Trust staff will be on hand to support collections and chat more about the wider aims of Project 35.

Tickets sold out

Tickets for this match are completely sold out and Steven Schumacher's men will once again be backed by a packed Home Park Stadium.

Please note, turnstiles will open 90 minutes before kick-off with supporters 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.

If you can no longer make the game, please aim to utilise our Ticket Exchange which gives season-ticket holders the ability to sell their designated seat at face value to other supporters. Season-ticket holders will have until three hours prior to kick-off to repost their tickets. If they sell, then their ticket account will be credited with the respective value.

Gate opening times

Argyle fans should be aware that gates will now open from 90 minutes before kick off for the rest of the season. 

The same amenities will be available to the Green Army as previously, gates will just open 30 minutes later than previously. 

Resurfacing works

Argyle fans should be aware of resurfacing works taking place on Coronation Avenue to Seagrave Road Roundabout and on Jack Leslie Way.

These works will have no impact on supporters matchday but are more just something to be aware of for the coming weeks.

These works are intended to be completed by the end of the year, but we will advise if there is any further impact on Argyle fans. 

Travel Guide

Plymouth Argyle recognises the importance of, and is committed to, minimising our environmental footprint. A key aspect of the club’s environmental plan is to make travel to and from Home Park on match-days sustainable, by making public transport options as accessible as possible, and by supporting and encouraging supporters to use transport options with the lowest environmental impact. 

To see how you can support us with this and for all the information you need to make your travel arrangements as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible, please see our travel guide, here.


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.

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.

Fans' should also be aware of a Winter Wonderland event taking place in Central Park, so parking around the area will be extra busy. 

Family Zone

The Argyle Community Trust will be running a Family Zone outside the Devonport End before the game.

Families are encouraged to attend to get involved in the various activities on offer! 

Fan behaviour

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. 

Half Time challenge

Our new half time challenge will continue for this weekend's game against Stoke City. 

Each league game the club will pick two fans to play, who will get one attempt each to try and pass the ball as close to the centre spot as possible from the halfway line touchline. The distance away from the centre circle will then be measured, and we will keep a running leaderboard over the course of the season. 

At the final league game, the top three overall on the leaderboard will return to participate in the grand final, where each participant will take part again. Whoever is closest to the centre spot in the grand final will take home a cash prize of £1,000.

Matchday programme

Copies of our award-winning matchday programme, The Pilgrim, are once again available around the stadium for purchase at £3.50, while a limited number will also be available to purchase from the Argyle Superstore.

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.

Argyle superstore

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.


The Evergreen Suite, adjacent to the Home Park Ticket Office, is open ahead of the game.

Complimentary sanitary products

Argyle are intent on providing a safe and welcoming environment for all visitors who attend matches.

Coronation Avenue temporary closure

As regular visitors to Central Park will know, there are some path closures at the Barn Park corner end of the park while the Ponds Project takes shape. 

Plymouth City Council had hoped to be able to open the closure on Coronation Avenue for match-days but due to a number of operational issues, this has not been possible.

We'd highly recommend taking the Jubilee Row route before and after the match as it is lit. The route around Pounds Park will be dark. 

Signage will be in place around the park to make the lit diversion clear.

Matchday Bus Services

Four football special bus services will operate for the game against Stoke City. 

Supporters should note that the PA1 service from Saltash has now been discontinued due to poor uptake.
