ARGYLE are re-opening Home Park’s Mayflower Terrace for Wednesday’s FA Cup tie against Liverpool.
Following unprecedented demand for tickets to watch the third-round replay with Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League giants, the club is to re-introduce temporary seating in the Mayflower for the first time since 2010.

The extra seating will raise Home Park’s capacity for the eagerly-anticipated clash by more than 1,800.

Pilgrims chairman James Brent said: “This is great news for the Green Army.

“Argyle’s management team and staff have been working extraordinarily long hours to issue around 13,500 tickets – our full allocation – over the last few days. This task has been made more challenging by the wish to make the allocation as fair as possible.

“At the same time, the management team has been working on a complex plan to add additional seating to ensure that as many members of the Green Army as possible can see the once-in-a-generation match.

“Our thanks go to Liverpool for waiving their allocation and their rights to any revenue from the new seating, without which we would not have been able to do this.

“We also thank our sponsors Ginsters and St Austell Brewery.

“Special thanks to the Safety Advisory Group for their strenuous efforts in helping to make this happen for the city of Plymouth.”

Tickets will be £35 – no concessions – and will include a free souvenir match-day programme, normally £5, and a voucher for a pasty and a drink which can be redeemed at a future game.

The club is absorbing the cost of the seating and will be taking a loss on those additional seats – the installation is not about making money, but making the game available to as many fans as possible.

Work will be going on around the clock to make sure that not only are the seats installed but also temporary toilets, food outlets, and access.

Tickets for the Mayflower seating will go on sale at 1pm on Monday, January 16 to White Members who have not previously bought a ticket and to people who meet the booking-history criteria, on line; at the Ticket Office; and by ’phone on 01752 907700. They will be able to by two tickets per person.

To satisfy the booking-history criteria, supporters must have purchased a minimum of five match tickets – home or away – through the Plymouth Argyle ticket office over the past two seasons.

To ease anticipated congestion at the Ticket Office, supporters are strongly urged to attempt to book online in the first instance.

From 9am on Tuesday, January 17, subject to availability, people without a booking history but who live in postcode areas PL, TQ and TR will also be eligible to buy two tickets for the Mayflower seating.

The Box Office is NOT open on Sunday, so that means ST holders who haven't yet claimed their seat most do by closing on Saturday

But they do get a free-programme and a voucher for a pasty and a drink at any home game this season.

I do know what you mean though !.

I suppose you would have to ask those who plan on sitting there if the price (with the offer) is a good deal.

The criteria for buying tickets has not changed. Perhaps they could have set aside a number of tickets for any POTD match ticket stubs from the last two seasons, for those who do not normally pay before hand.

Exactly, if it wasn't about money they'd cost the same as every other seat in the ground and the difference would be swallowed by the benevolent one. A programme and a pasty cost the club 2 quid tops I'd imagine.

They could do with a PR specialist on board, couldn't they!

They just can't help but come across as Pointyheads even when they've done the right thing.

Indeed making absolute fortune from this game but none is earmarked for team investment to get out of this dogshit league though..

Thirty five quid to sit on a temporary plastic seat with no roof totaly open to the elements? anybody who gives in to this rip off has more money than sense!
It should be twenty quid the same price for all, shameful!

I'm too old in the tooth to fall for Brent cup fever, but if the seating remains for the rest of the season, which would be the REAL triumph over evil, I would think of taking in one league game for old times sake. I would look upon it as a legally constructed Bradley Wiggins medicine. There's not a boycott on the planet that wouldn't allow me that leeway.

and a voucher for a pasty and a drink which can be redeemed at a future game.

The bit above makes me smile people might think you're getting a good deal but to get your free drink and pasty you have to attend another game. Which means the club wins again coz they get you to buy another ticket at full price to claim your free pasty and pint. Also a pasty and a drink probably cost the club less than £1.50.

nice bit of marketing.....

Factor in also that the pasty is a Ginsters, and the deal is even worse. I'm thinking about how much someone would have to pay me to eat a Ginsters.....a lot more than £1.50 foreshore.

If they decide to leave the seats in till the end of the season then that at last shows an inkling of foresight. I won't hold my breath though.

The pasty ain't no ginsters and the voucher for said pasty and drink is for another game so not many will be back to claim it. Clever marketing all round.

A good gesture from the club that although not perfect, at least comes from the right place.

I'm not sure how much this is a gesture by the club, as with everything in Brent's world the gestures are made by everyone else.

The cost is £35 but the sentiment is to thank the green army, why the additional charge?
The pasty and programme can only be redeemed at a future game.
Liverpool have agreed to not take any revenue from the additional seating.
He thanks sponsors Ginsters and St. Austell brewery so they must be contributing.

As others have mentioned what could have been PR heaven is laced with corporate speak and an attitude that he can only be bothered to do something if someone else is paying.
