History (from Wikipedia)

Home Park is a football stadium in PlymouthEngland. The ground, nicknamed the Theatre of Greens, has been the home of Football League One club Plymouth Argyle since 1901.[3]

After undergoing considerable development in the 1920s and 1930s, the ground suffered heavy damage in 
World War II. It reopened in time for the resumption of the Football League in 1945, and underwent further improvements in the 1950s, including the installation of floodlights and a new double-decker grandstand. The ground remained relatively unchanged until 2001, when construction of three new all-seater stands began.[4] The work was completed in 2002, and after further work the stadium became all-seater in the summer of 2007.[5]

The stadium's record attendance was in 1936, when 43,596 spectators watched the club play a 
Second Division match against Aston Villa. The record average attendance for a single season, 23,290, came in the 1946–47 season.[6] The stadium was selected as part of England's 2018 FIFA World Cup bid by the FA in December 2009.[7][8] The ground has played host to England youth internationals, and a UEFA Cup Winners' Cup match between Saint-Étienne and Manchester United in 1977.[9] Home Park has also hosted Rugby union and athletics, and live music in the summer, with Elton JohnGeorge Michael and Rod Stewart among the acts who have performed at the ground.[10]

The Mayflower stand, known as the Grandstand, reopened fully on 1 January 2020 following a significant refurbishment. The other three stands are each very similar in design and are linked together at the corners, having been built in 2001.

The Devonport End houses the more vocal of the club's supporters.
[11] The Lyndhurst Stand is the largest of the three stands, holding about 7,000 spectators, including the corners. The corner towards the East side of the ground is now the dedicated family corner. The Barn Park End is where the away supporters are housed. It holds about 3,000 spectators. The standard allocation given to visiting clubs had previously been 1,300, and this had been increased in the past whenever demand required it. although only 1,300 tickets were issued to away fans for the upcoming 2018–19 season.[12]

All three stands have good views and standard facilities for a football stadium, including 
concourses, merchandise stands and food and drink outlets. The pitch measures about 100 metres (109 yards) long by 66 metres (72 yards) wide, with a few metres of run-off space on each side. The ground also has two pitch covers, rain and frost, to protect the pitch against adverse winter weather.
