Palace Reveal Development Plans For Selhurst

Palace Reveal Development Plans For Selhurst

Crystal Palace have today revealed plans for the redevelopment work at Selhurst Park.

Planning applications will go in come the New Year and January and subject to permission being granted, it's expected that work will begin within the next 12 months with the overall project estimated to cost between £75-£100million.

The new stadium will take three years to complete and take overall capacity from 26,000 to 34,000.

During the work the Main Stand will remain fully operational to minimise the impact on stadium capacity in the intervening seasons and the centerpiece of the redevelopment will be a new five storey stand featuring an all glass front as a nod to the early days of the original Crystal Palace on Sydenham Hill.

The project is being designed by architects KSS who were behind work at Anfield, Twickenham and Wimbledon.

Chairman Steve Parish told Crystal Palace FC.

'We need a stadium that reflects who we are, how far we have come and where we want to go - a stadium that South London can be proud of, a home worthy of our incredible support and unique atmosphere and this great Premier League we represent. We have worked long and hard and looked at several options over the years, including returning to the original site of Crystal Palace, which wasn't viable. While we can't go back to it, we can build a new one and today I am proud, in conjunction with our partners KSS, to introduce a new Selhurst Park with a new Crystal Palace for a new era. We are creating a new home worthy of our Club, our supporters and our community, and a celebration of our 112 years in South London.'
