Crystal Palace to transform Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace's chairman has unveiled plans to increase Selhurst Park's capacity to more than 34,000.

Steve Parish said the expansion, expected to cost between figures of £75m-£100m, would be an "icon" for south London.

The full revamp is expected to take three years to complete.

KSS, the architects behind the project, have previously redeveloped sporting venues including Anfield, Twickenham and Wimbledon.

Crystal Palace will now look to revamp the current stadium in south London - which currently has a capacity of 25,456.

The "centrepiece" of the proposal is a new five-storey Main Stand.

If given the go-ahead the project will follow a similar route as how Liverpool FC redeveloped Anfield - meaning the Main Stand will remain in "full operation use" throughout cons­truc­ti­on.

The planning application will be submitted to Croydon Council in January and the club said that, subject to approval, work will begin on the stadium by the end of 2018.
