£5m grandstand to open on New Year's Day?

Plymouth target New Year’s Day opening for new grandstand

Thursday 12th September 2019

Plymouth Argyle are making progress on their new grandstand, potentially looking to open it on New Year's Day next year.

The announcement was made in the club’s blog with the Head of Stadium Redevelopment teasing the news, saying he’d love to see a full house when they host Swindon Town after Christmas.

The League 2 side are increasing the capacity of Home Park to 18,000 in a project costing around £5m. Progress on the new stand is good with some upper tier seating already installed.
