Not since the 2004-05 season, the year after the Pilgrims won promotion to the Championship, have fans had to be turned away, as they were when Wolves and Leeds visited.
The game also sees the launch of Devon and Cornwall's bid, with Plymouth at its heart, to gain host city status for the 2018 World Cup. That, along with special ticket offers to the region's students and youngsters, has fired the enthusiasm of the Green Army.
Director Keith Todd, who is also involved in the World Cup bid, said: "The West Country bid is a People's Bid and this demonstrates perfectly the enthusiasm the people of the region have for top-flight football.
"They are voting with their hearts and feet and reinforce our strong commitment that is in our World Cup host city bid to encourage football in the region.
"The bid is firmly focused on football as a family experience and we are delighted families have decided to come and join us at Home Park this Sunday."
