About Plymouth Argyle

Originally known simply as Argyle FC, the club was renamed before turning professional in 1903 and then joining the English Leagues.

Since then, the team has played across the second, third and fourth tiers with much success, has twice reached the semi-finals of the League Cup and has also appeared in an FA Cup semi-final.

Having run into financial issues, the club was rescued from administration in 2011 and has since worked towards its goal of becoming a sustainable club in the EFL Championship; the level at which it now operates.

The club is nicknamed the Pilgrims in homage to the first people that left Plymouth for America and the ship on which they travelled - The Mayflower - is featured on the club crest.

No place like home

The club has played at Home Park, also referred to the 'Theatre of Greens' since 1901 with the ground having undergone many changes since then - most notably after extensive damage was sustained in World War II.

The refurbishment of the Mayflower Grandstand in 2019 left the stadium with a capacity of 17,000, which is regularly sold out as members of the Green Army flock to the ground to cheer on the team.

Aside from match days, the stadium is also used for a number of additional events, and various activities that are focused around the local community.

The Green Army

Plymouth Argyle's loyal following have backed the club through good times and bad, and put in plenty of hours on the roads for long away journeys - which could see them facing a round trip of more than 800 miles.

The Green Army know how to create an electric atmosphere at Home Park and appreciate the fans are a driving force behind the club and its ongoing success. Through our partnership, we hope to give back to The Green Army with various competitions and giveaways.

Driving forward together

"I am incredibly excited that our brand has agreed this deal with Plymouth Argyle. The club and its supporters are fantastic, and I'm sure there will be an amazing atmosphere at Wembley.

Vertu Motors is a huge supporter of football, and sport in general, but we only work with clubs that we feel have the strongest communities and really engage with their fans. When we partner with a club, we do so because we want to raise our profile in an area but also contribute to the fans' own experiences with their team. Plymouth Argyle fans are very passionate about their club."

Nick Jones
Volvo Franchise Director, Vertu Motors

"We are delighted to welcome Vertu Motors to our portfolio of club partners. There is surely no better time to join the club than right now, with an exciting promotion run-in and the club's first domestic cup final at Wembley Stadium to look forward to.

Vertu Motors is another high-profile and nationally renowned partner joining an ever-growing list at Argyle. The company's strategic investment in the South West can only be good news for the local economy, and we very much look forward to working together over the duration of the partnership."
