Selhurst Park Information
Selhurst Park was built in the early 1920s after Crystal Palace had bought a piece of land from the Brighton Railway Company and architect Archibald Leitch had been hired to design the new stadium.
It was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of London on 30 August 1924. There was then only one stand (the present Main Stand), but this was unfinished due to industrial action; Crystal Palace played Sheffield Wednesday and lost 0–1 in front of 25,000 fans.
Selhurst Park Guide
The ground is a mixture of the modern and the old, with two old side stands and two more modern looking end stands. The newest edition is the two-tiered Holmesdale Road Stand at one end, which was opened in 1995.
This stand has a large lower tier, with a smaller upper tier that overhangs it. The stand looks impressive and has a large curved roof, as well as windshields on either side of the upper tier.
This is where the bulk of home supporters congregate. Opposite is the Whitehorse Lane Stand. This was originally a large open terrace but was reduced in capacity in the early 1980’s when land was sold for a Sainsbury’s supermarket which is still present outside the ground.
During the early 1990’s the terrace was made all seated and a double row of executive boxes was the constructed above it, giving it an unusual look. Later a roof added and then a large video screen installed upon it. This stand has now been renamed the ‘Croydon Advertiser Family Stand’.
One side is the large, covered, single tiered Arthur Wait stand, which was built in 1969, while on the other side the Main Stand, which dates back to when the ground opened in 1924, is also single tiered.
