Preparing a new Palace

Crystal Palace Football Club has unveiled ambitious plans to redevelop Selhurst Park, creating a new Crystal Palace for a new era.

The project, which is expected to cost between £75-£100m, will increase the capacity at Selhurst Park from 26,000 to more than 34,000, overhauling a stadium which has been the club’s home since 1924.

Chairman, Steve Parish, has said funds for next month’s transfer window are ring-fenced and will not be affected by the club’s determination to pursue an ambitious £100m redevelopment of Selhurst Park’s main stand.

Key features of the redevelopment include:

  • Capacity in the new stand will increase from around 5,400 to 13,500, with more than 10,700 General Admission seats - an increase of around 6,000 on existing numbers
  • Improved facilities for supporters with disabilities and a substantial increase in wheelchair spaces, making Selhurst Park compliant with Accessible Stadia Guidelines
  • A bigger pitch, increased from 101.5m x 68, to 105m x68m, making Selhurst Park compliant with UEFA regulations and eligible to host tournament football
  • Premium hospitality and entertainment facilities for more than 2,500 supporters, including a new Tunnel Club, and between 16-28 boxes, which will give members a unique vantage point as the players prepare for the match and conduct post-match interviews
  • A new museum, documenting the club’s rich history and its place in the South London community
  • New community facilities, supplementing the work of the Palace for Life Foundation, which delivers health, education and sporting programmes for more than 13,500 local children and young adults
  • Improved sightlines in the Arthur Wait Stand with the removal of the TV gantry, and improved Arthur Wait concourse
  • Redevelopment of the upper Whitehorse Lane Boxes into mixed bar/box use
