Selhurst Park – design description
New western main grandstand of Selhurst Park is expected to aid Crystal Palace in becoming one of England's biggest clubs, both by increasing ticket availability and boosting the club's commercial potential. Expected annual revenue from the structure should be around £15 million, which means the project would pay for itself in 5-7 years.
Capacity-wise, the stand will grow from previous 5,400 to 13,500 and vast majority of the seats will be general admission. Only 2,500 business seats are planned, as well as 16-28 private boxes,including one of Europe's first 'tunnel clubs', offering guests a view of the players in the tunnel and mixed zone.
The 41-meter-tall structure will not require any of the surrounding buildings' demolition, though the stadium's blueprint will increase significantly. But more than its size, the architecture raised some eyebrows. Though widely expected, it's still impressive that both the symbol of Crystal Palace pavilion of 1851 and eagle's wings are incorporated into the facade.
