Crystal Palace have announced that they plan to extend the capacity of Selhurst Park to 34,000.

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.

It will transform the match-day experience for supporters and provide new facilities for the community while retaining the ground’s uniquely passionate Premier League atmosphere.

The centrepiece of the redevelopment is a stunning new five-storey stand featuring an all-glass front – a homage to the club’s earliest days when it stood in the shadows of the original Crystal Palace, erected on Sydenham Hill.

A central vaulted arch, with the famous Eagle crest, is a reminder of the iconic 1851 Exhibition Hall, and eagle wings flank the 41-metre structure.

Plans will be submitted to Croydon Council in January and, subject to planning permission being granted, work would begin in the next 12 months.

The project is likely to take up to three years to complete.

The existing Main Stand will remain in full operational use throughout the build process, minimising the impact on the stadium capacity in the coming seasons.
