Selhurst Park, the long-time home of Crystal Palace, is enjoying a growing reputation as having one of the best match-day atmospheres in the Premier League.
The passionate fans have introduced a European style ultras culture led by the vociferous hard core in the Holmesdale End of the ground.
The stands are tight on the pitch and when it’s full to its 25,500 capacity – and it often is – then Selhurst Park is rocking.

Crystal Palace are currently the biggest London side south of the River Thames. They have been a yo-yo club over the years, bouncing between the Premier League and the Championship, but there are big plans to consolidate their top- flight status and develop their Selhurst Park home.
Palace were a major force in England in the early 1990s, with players such as Ian Wright, Mark Bright and John Salako in the ranks and Steve Coppell in the dugout. They reached the FA Cup final in 1990 and finished a record third place in the First Division 12 months later.
Lengthy spells in the second tier have followed but have now achieved midtable finishes in the Premier League for several seasons.
Selhurst Park was first opened in 1924 and the original main stand is still in place. The 10,000 capacity Arthur Wait Stand opposite is split between home and away supporters and there’s always a cracking atmosphere.
Palace are nicknamed the Eagles and the club mascot Kayla, an American bald eagle, flies across the pitch before the start of each home game. The players run out to the song Glad All Over – the feel good factor is everywhere at Selhurst Park.
