Richard Scuadamore Opens New Media Centre

4 November 2014

Before Palace's match with Sunderland on Monday night, Premier League chief executive Richard Scuadamore was on hand to officially open the new Media Centre at Selhurst Park.

Situated in the Holmesdale Road stand the facility will be used by broadcast and written press at all matches held at the Eagles' home, with space available for nearly 100 journalists to report on the action that unfolds on the pitch outside.

It will also be the venue for Neil Warnock's pre and post-match interviews throughout the season and rivals similar media suites around the Premier League.

After doing the honours of opening the suite alongside Palace chairman Steve Parish, Scudamore revealed his pride in seeing Palace's stadium develop over the past 18 months since the Eagles returned to the top-flight.

"This is as good as anything we've got in the Premier League, it's really impressive," he said. "The digital facilities, the seating, the food serving area and the area for press conferences is fantastic.

"I can remember lots about this ground that has changed recently. The club has been on a journey of improvement in the last couple of years since they've been in the Premier League again. 

"Everyone thinks that as soon as you get in this league that all the money gets spent on player costs but that's not true, lots of clubs invest in academies or facilities like this one. It's a real sense of pride when you see things improving."
