Home Park Stadium 'Going to the Match' - Plymouth Argyle FC
Home Park is a football stadium in Plymouth, England. The ground, nicknamed the Theatre of Greens, has been the home of Football League Two club Plymouth Argyle since 1901.
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. The work was completed in 2002, and after further work the stadium became all-seater in the summer of 2007

The F.A. Cup Final at Wembley Stadium, 1923
Aerial photograph of Wembley Stadium before the start of the 1923 F.A. Cup Final between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. This was the first Cup Final held at the then brand-new Wembley Stadium, which had been built in 300 days at a cost of 750, 000. Before the match began a crowd of about 100, 000 (most without a ticket) stormed through the gates and into the stadium. This meant that there was approximately 200, 000 people in a ground designed for 127, 000. The photograph shows the scene as the spectators moved onto the pitch, due to the pressure of people behind them. The match started 40 minutes late and was won by Bolton 2-0"
