Scheme for Premier League strugglers will increase capacity to more than 34,000

Croydon council is due to decide this week whether to give the green light to a £100m plan by Crystal Palace to redevelop its ageing Selhurst Park ground.

The project for the struggling Premier League side will increase the capacity at the south London stadium from 26,000 to more than 34,000.

The major part of the redevelopment, which is being designed by architect KSS, involves replacing the 1924-built main stand, which currently holds just over 5,600 people, with a new 13,500 seat, five-storey main stand that will feature an all-glass front that draws inspiration from the original Crystal Palace.
