RESIDENTS are being invited to a public exhibition to view Crystal Palace Football Club’s plans for the redevelopment of the Main Stand at Selhurst Park.

The project to overhaul Selhurst Park, which has been the club’s home since 1924, was announced last December and a planning application is being submitted in January. Designed by KSS Architects, the project is inspired by the club’s rich heritage and its roots in South London, with the design paying homage to the original Crystal Palace on Sydenham Hill.

The redevelopment will see the capacity increase from 26,000 to more than 34,000, transforming the matchday experience for supporters and providing new facilities for the community.

The club is staging a public exhibition over two days where members of the local community, and all interested parties, can view the plans and meet members of the project team who are bringing forward the proposals.

The events are being held in Speroni’s at Selhurst Park on Thursday 18th January, from 3pm to 8pm, and on Saturday 20th January, from 10am to 2pm.  Access is via the main reception and all are welcome to attend.

Crystal Palace Football Club Development Manager Guy Wickett said:

“We are very excited about our plans for Selhurst Park, which will give south London a stadium to make it proud and benefit the whole community. We look forward to sharing our ideas with neighbours and local residents at the public exhibitions”.
