SELHURST PARK has been the permanent home of Crystal Palace for over 90 years, although it has also been a temporary base for two other Football League clubs in that period.

Wimbledon (1991-2003) and Charlton Athletic (1985-1991) have taken residence at the South London stadium in the past, although both since moving to more relevant venues.

Located in the South Norwood district, Selhurst Park has a capacity of 26,309, with its record attendance being 51,801 – a crowd that saw the Club clinch the Second Division title against Burnley in 1979.

Much needed refurbishments were made as recently as 2013 with new seats installed in both the Main Stand and Arthur Wait Stand.

Away fans are situated in the Arthur Wait Stand as normal.

*Please note that Crystal Palace will have increased security searches in place at the ground, so they are reminding fans to arrive in plenty of time to help speed up their entry into the ground.

*There is a zero tolerance approach concerning fans deploying smoke bombs in Selhurst Park. Strong sanctions will be placed on any offenders.

Some local streets are subject to time restrictions and permit-only requirements.

Crystal Palace advise supporters to leave plenty of time when looking for local parking.

One potential area is around Selhurst Station, Edith Road and Dagnall Park.

The roads in Thornton Heath are mostly pay and display.
