Fans' Information | Arsenal Under-21s (H)
Argyle hope to keep their Papa John's Trophy qualification hopes alive with a victory over Arsenal under-21s on Tuesday night.
Having lost their opening two fixtures in the competition, a big win is needed to see the Greens through to the knock-out stages - coupled with a defeat for Newport County against Swindon Town in their final fixture a week later.
Please note that the fixture kicks off at 7.45pm.
In order to help supporters get the most of their match-day experience, as well as ensuring the safety and security of fans, players, officials and staff inside the stadium, we have compiled a handy guide below ahead of the fixture against Arsenal.
Spectators are also advised to read the updated 21/22 Code of Conduct before attending Home Park. Click here to do so.
With this home fixture the closest to Remembrance Day in our 21/22 first-team schedule, our players will wear poppy armbands and participate in a minute's silence before kick-off.

Please note that coverage for this game is single camera (with replays and graphics), and there is no pre-match show.
Turnstiles and ticketing
Turnstiles will open 90 minutes before the game, and 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.
Supporters of both sides can purchase tickets on the day, right up until kick-off, from the Home Park Ticket Office.
However, we encourage supporters to purchase digital tickets wherever possible, reducing queuing times at the Ticket Office, as well as the impact of ticket production.
Supporters can purchase tickets from their mobile devices right up until kick-off, selecting the ‘print at home’ option, and clicking 'add to wallet' when they receive their confirmation email. Click here to read more about digital tickets.
Should supporters arrive late for the fixture, there will be one late turnstile open in the Lyndhurst Road Stand, and it will remain open until half-time.
Call 01752 907700, visit the Home Park Ticket Office, or click here to purchase tickets.
Refreshments and facilities inside Home Park
Concession kiosks will be open, serving a range of food and beverages.
Meanwhile, toilet facilities will continue to operate with a one-way system. In order to avoid large queues at peak times (e.g half-time), we advise supporters to plan ahead for toilet breaks, using facilities when they are likely to be less busy.
We encourage fans to pay using contactless methods wherever possible to reduce queuing times.
Supporters should be prepared to be searched by our security team as they enter the stadium. Contact searches are undertaken by security members of the same gender.
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.

Home Park is an all-seater stadium. By buying a ticket and entering the ground, spectators agree to abide by the ground regulations; these regulations forbid persistent standing.
To maintain our excellent safety record and to protect our safety certificate the regulation in relation to persistent standing will be enforced and we ask spectators to refrain from persistently standing. Those failing to comply may be subject to ejection. Your assistance is very much appreciated.
Despite the changes to government guidance on coronavirus, we will continue to encourage all supporters in attendance to wear a face covering while traversing through turnstiles, concourses and enclosed spaces. These can be removed once in the stadium bowl and seated.
While this is not a condition of entry, we ask those attending the stadium to consider the health of fellow supporters, as well as Argyle staff, all of whom will be wearing face coverings for supporters’ benefit, when deciding whether or not to comply with this request. As per government guidance, supporters are reminded to try and remain in their social bubbles wherever possible.
We would also ask all supporters to consider taking a COVID-19 lateral flow test before attending Home Park – these can be ordered online here. Again, while this is not a condition of entry, club staff are committed to undertaking regular tests to ensure that we play our part in making Argyle matches as safe an environment as possible for our supporters. We ask that our fans contribute to this effort.
The Argyle Superstore will take the same approach, with retail staff wearing face coverings. However, the capacity of the Superstore will be raised to a maximum of 30 supporters at any one time.
We are keen to reiterate that the above considerations are not conditions of entry, and will not be enforced by our match-day operations team. However, we do consider it our duty to provide the safest possible environment for supporters, and we ask fans to contribute towards this goal by following guidance.
For more information on what we are doing to minimise risks at Home Park, and how you can help make attending Home Park a great experience for all, please check out our Return to Stadium Guide.
As always, we encourage supporters to provide feedback on their experience at Argyle to email@example.com.
We can’t wait to see you on Tuesday, and hope you have a fantastic match-day experience at Home Park.
