      I do not think there is a better atmosphere in the Premier League.

      Accessing Selhurst Park

      Selhurst Park is situated at the heart of Selhurst, just a 10-15-minute walk from Selhurst, Thornton Heath and Norwood Junction stations.

      We encourage supporters to cycle to the stadium where possible. Bicycle storage is available for free on request at the Information Centre, which is located by Entrance 9 and open three hours before kick-off.

      The Whitehorse Lane stand houses our Executive Boxes, with additional Premium Seating in the Main Stand. Visiting supporters are situated in the corner of the Arthur Wait Stand next to the Whitehorse Lane end.

      Information for disabled supporters can be found here.

      Fan displays & flags

      The club supports fan-led displays at Selhurst Park and will always assist any group who wants to create them. Supporters who wish to create a display must do so in line with safety guidelines to ensure that any displays are installed and secured safely and do not present a risk to the supporters assisting in creating the display, the club's staff, nor supporters in the ground at the time the display happens.

      • Any display that hangs from a structure or requires securing needs qualified and accredited personnel to undertake the work.
      • Flags must be fireproofed and larger flags will only be considered if accompanied by a British Standards zero spread of flames fire certificate.
      • Flags must be displayed responsibly and not impact the view of supporters during the game.
      • Illegal Marine Flares (or any type of pyrotechnics) must not be taken into or ignited in the ground.

      We will do our best to accommodate all requests for flags and banners to be brought into the stadium, but there is limited space for them to be displayed. Supporters wishing to bring a flag or banner should send their request to Ben Collins,, along with a full description and photograph (where possible) at least seven days before the game.

      Full details can be found here of food and drink available at stadium concourse bars.

      Our ethos

      We source from partners and growers we know and trust, letting their farming dictate our menu based on season and sustainably. We believe the food journey begins with caring for ingredients and animals and go to great lengths to work with farmers who are doing the right thing, sourcing products locally where possible.

      That’s why we put just as much care into how an animal is raised and treated as we do into the soil our vegetables and fruits are from. We get whole vegetables, whole fruits and whole grains delivered to our kitchens, before our team dices, slices, spices and roasts in-house; because food tastes better when it’s made fresh.

      Crystal Palace are committed to using local suppliers for food and drink across the stadium. Goddard's pies and Palace Ale are available across Selhurst Park and both come from quality, local sources.

      Reporting poor/offensive behaviour

      Crystal Palace F.C. operate a confidential text service for supporters who witness and wish to report any kind of poor behaviour from supporters on matchdays inside Selhurst Park.

      If the text does not work, please speak to a steward.


      The stadium is monitored by CCTV throughout, and some stewards may be wearing body cameras that record both audio and visual for your safety.

Tickets remain the property of the Club at all times.

      22 CCTV cameras are in use around and in the Ground. Body worn video cameras recording video and/or audio may also be used as appropriate, for example to record prohibited behaviours as referenced in paragraphs 9 and 10. The Club may itself use or pass to the police or any Football Authority or other clubs, any recordings for use in any proceedings.

      23 At all times whilst present in the Ground, persons must comply with any and all instructions of any steward or officer of the Club and/or any police officer. Failure to comply with any instruction may lead to immediate ejection from the Ground.

      24 By entering the Ground, all persons are acknowledging that photographic images and/or audio, visual and/or audio-visual recordings and/or feeds (and/or stills taken therefrom ) may be taken of them and may also be used, by way of example and without limitation, in televised coverage of the game and/or for promotional, training, editorial or marketing purposes by the Club, the Premier League or others (including commercial partners and accredited media organisations) and entry into the Ground constitutes consent to such use.

      25 All ticket holders agree that the Matches for which the tickets have been purchased are public, and that their appearance and actions inside and in the perimeter of the Ground where a Match occurs are public in nature, and that they shall have no expectation of privacy with regard to their actions or conduct at Matches.

      27 Refused entry to (or ejection from) the Ground may lead to further action by the Club including, but not limited to, the withdrawal of any season ticket (without reimbursement), Club Membership and other benefits.

      28 Flags are permitted although we are limited on where they can be displayed in terms of space available especially in home sections.

      All banners must be accompanied by a British Standards zero spread of flames fire certificate. Flags on poles are allowed as long as they are no larger than 2m x 1m in size and the flag poles need to be no more than pencil thick. Crowd surfer flags are not allowed in the visiting section.

      They should send details of the flag with the appropriate fire certificate to at least five working days before the game. We will then consult with Stadium Management and a decision will be given from there.

      Banners must not contain foul language, be defamatory or contain political or offensive slogans and the club reserves the right to turn banners away if the content is felt to be offensive in any way.

      Generally we are flexible with banners but the main obstacle is the lack of space in the ground to display large banners especially in the home and visiting supporters sections.
