History and description

The stadium was originally built with a capacity of 25,000 but in 1923 it was increased to 33,000. The Selhurst Park Stadium was built in the early 1920s by Crystal Palace and designed by Archibald Leitch. The stadium originally had a capacity of 25,000 but in 1923 it was increased to 33,000. On 30 August 1924, Selhurst Park officially opened with a match between Crystal Palace and Sheffield Wednesday. The stadium consisted of one covered main stand and large terraces on earth banking on the other sides, though the main stand had not been completed in time for the opening.

No changes were made to the ground until in 1969 the Arthur Wait Stand got built opposite the main stand.

Selhurst Park set its record attendance in 1979 when 51,801 people came to see Crystal Palace beat Burnley and win the Second Division.

In 1983, the Whitehorse Lane terrace of the club's stadium was sold to retailer Sainsbury's in order to raise money to pay off their debts. A few years later, much of the stadium had already been converted into an all-seater, so the remainder of the stand got fitted with executive boxes and a roof.

In the late 1980s, Charlton Athletic, who were going through difficulties with their administration and temporarily lost their home ground, Selhurst Park, moved into the ground. Wimbledon, who had been experiencing problems with Plough Lane falling into disrepair, would also use the ground later on.

Selhurst Park underwent final developments in 1994 when the Homesdale terrace was demolished and replaced by a two-tiered all-seater stands. At the same time, a new roof got installed on the Main Stand.

Crystal Palace announced plans to build a new Main Stand in 2017. The new stand will be able to hold 13,500 spectators, raising capacity to 34,000 seats, and come at an estimated cost of £100 million. Palace hope to start construction of the new stand in 2018 and will be able to keep playing at Selhurst Park during its construction, which is expected to take up to three years.

How to get to Selhurst Park

The Selhurst Park stadium is located in the far south of London, about 8 kilometres from central London. The stadium can be accessed by train. Both Selhurst and Thornton Heath stations are within a 5-10 minute walk from the ground. The closest London Underground stations are Victoria and London Bridge which can be reached by train from there.

Norwood Junction is located on the other side of Selhurst Park, and it has express services from London Bridge station. This station arrives quicker than the other trains (in 10 to 15 minutes).

There are several buses that connect to the stadium. Bus 468 can be caught from Elephant & Castle, and bus X68 can be taken from Russel Square in The City or Waterloo Station. Both buses pass the stadium on Whitehorse Lane.
