Crystal Palace Football Club has confirmed its plans for a 40,000 seater stadium at the club’s original home at Crystal Palace Park.
The Npower Championship club intend to build a new indoor aquatic centre, reconfigured indoor sports complex within the existing structure and new community athletics facility as part of the stadium.
The confirmation of the club’s intentions presents an obstacle for Tottenham Hotspur with the Premier League club planning to renovate the facility as part of plans to destroy the Olympic Stadium and build a new stadium on the site if it were successful with its bid against West Ham United. A decision is due on the January 28th.
Steve Parish, co-chairman of Crystal Palace, said: "We are delighted to put forward our plans to return the club home to where it all began. We believe a stadium at Crystal Palace Park can help create a bright new future for the club as well as helping it to breathe new life into both the sports centre and the park."
