ARGYLE season-ticket holders have less than five weeks before they will be able watch the Pilgrims from the plush new surroundings of the Mayflower Grandstand.
The eagerly anticipated official grand opening of the £8m-plus, 18-month major renovation of the magnificent main stand at Home Park will be on New Year’s Day, when Swindon Town visit for the first Sky Bet League Two match of 2020.
However, part of the Mayflower – enough to host all season-ticket holders that will be moving back to the stand after a year and a half away – will be opening for the first time on Saturday, December 14, when former manager Derek Adams brings his Morecambe team to face the Pilgrims.
Letters from Argyle Chief Executive Andrew Parkinson go out on Tuesday to Argyle supporters who held a season-ticket for the 2017-18 season, offering them the chance to relocate to the Mayflower Grandstand to a seat as close as possible to the one that they vacated.
Supporters are unlikely to be given an identical seat number to the one that they previously held – one of the first changes that fans will notice about the grandstand seat numbering is that it runs the opposite way to before: i.e. Seat No.1 is at the Devonport End of the grandstand.
A team of Argyle staff members is on hand and ready to assist supporters with their relocation queries, and the club has set up a dedicated email address – firstname.lastname@example.org – to help make the process as smooth as possible.
Supporters can also call 01752 907700 or visit the Home Park Ticket Office to discuss their seat migration.
