Plymouth Argyle Football Club, also known as the Pilgrims, are one of the few soccer clubs in the English national leagues to play in a principally green strip. Their original ground, Home Park, was destroyed by German bombers during the blitz on Plymouth during World War II. Rebuilt after the war, Home Park has again recently been demolished as part of an extensive process of renovation, and the first phase of a new stadium built by Barrs plc will be complete by May 2002. The old Devonport End is now nearly complete and is expected to ready for the Boxing Day fixture with Torquay United F.C..

The club was founded in 1886 and gets its name from Argyle Street on Mutley Plain. The club became fully professional in 1903.
