Not sure if it’s be mentioned before but anyone know if the floodlights on the mayflower side are being replaced? The current ones are shocking.


The answer about the floodlights is in the link below.

Question and answer 7 is interesting. It seems to suggest that somewhere in legislation that properly constructed and stewarded standing is unsafe. There is no such claim

Read it again LC:

A7: The PAFC Board has seen no evidence that suggests properly constructed and stewarded standing is anything other than safe. We believe the Green Army would like part of the Stadium to be standing and we will work with the English Football League to continue to push this argument.



I would suggest that this statement is not just support for safe standing to be made legal but a dig at why clubs like Exeter can continue to have open terracing but Argyle can't. JB as much as said so in the recent fans' forum.

It was good to see around 11500 Argyle fans at Home Park today. The main stand looked quite full. Question- where will all those people sit if we close the main stand and continue to get 12000 gates? Does anyone know the plan?

Attendance was 11942 today. So we'd have to reduce the tickets for away fans considerably, and utilise the full horseshoe instead of having 2000 seats for segregation

Who says we are going to close the main stand?

I thought the plan was for the Mayflower Terrace to be completed first - i.e. have seating put in and then the upstairs supporters use them, while the top stand is refurbished.

I would have thought it was obvious, there would be a reduced capacity during the time the Grandstand was out of use and matches would be all ticket.

Thanks, that's 4 different answers!
So in fact, nobody seems to know the plan. No doubt all will be revealed in time

When they built the horse shoe we were all wedged into the maflower standing area. I remember it being packed until the Boxing day game when 2 x sides were opened. I suspect that we will all be in the horse shoe which I dont think will be a big issue. Reduced segregation to the away fans and filling the barn oark corner would house the 2K fans from the mayflower easily. We wouldnt be able to give out freebies the the Junior leagues mind :-)

I think Brent said that the grandstand will be refurbished (with new seats) between the end of one season and the start of the next season, thereby not requiring any movement by the fanbase.

The Directors Box will be on the floor below where it is now, allowing extra space to be provided in the top tier, either for extra seating or more room for the existing seating.

I'm not sure about the Mayflower seating, as to whether the current seats will be moved forward at the same time or not. Depends when the mayflower terrace gets seating put in, I suppose.

Oh and surely the gap on the Grandstand East is MADE for a scoreboard of some kind...

You could say that about the position of any scoreboard. Normally there is one at each end so everyone can see.

Just pointing out that it's almost a perfect scoreboard sized gap, and elegantly covers a conspicuous blank wall.
