Thea, from Noss Mayo, and Fred, from Plympton and their guests were given top seats for the game, with Argyle beating Rochdale 3-1 in the sunshine.
Each were also given the club's white membership, which gets them entry to six games.
Thea said: "I did not vote for Pilgrims, but I had one after an earlier match and I thoroughly enjoyed it."
Thea said she watched a "really good game" with husband Derek and her father Lewis Downing, who has been going to Argyle since 1945.
She added: "We enjoyed the hospitality. We were really well looked after." They were treated to lunch, which was a little bit more upmarket than a humble pasty, and were guests in the boardroom after the game.
Fred, who attended with his friend Jeff Kellaway, said: "Argyle played very well and we sat in the directors' box, which was a new experience for us.
"We enjoyed the carvery and we were very well looked after."
