A Statement from Plymouth Argyle
Severe winds overnight have caused significant damage to the roof of Home Park, rendering parts of the ground unsafe for spectators.
The continuing weather conditions, with winds gusting to gale-force at times, has made it impossible to safely access the roof to make repairs.
With supporters’ safety of paramount concern, and following consultation with the police and safety experts, we have been advised that we are not allowed to open the stadium. Therefore, regrettably we have been left with no option but to call off the game.
In keeping with the rest of Home Park, the roof was assessed during the summer and passed independent stringent safety and structural tests. We are content that the overnight damage was unavoidable.
Details of the re-arranged fixture and associated ticketing information will be released as soon as we have them. Tickets for the match will be valid for the re-scheduled game.
We would like to extend our thanks to those who have made the long journey down to Plymouth yesterday or during the early hours of this morning and wish you a very safe journey home this afternoon.
Details regarding tickets and refunds will be made available from Monday.
