Crystal Palace to protect transfer budget despite £100m stadium plans
• Proposals embrace rising capability by eight,000 to 34,000
• Steve Parish: ‘That is the membership’s long-term future’
The Crystal Palace chairman, Steve Parish, has stated funds for subsequent month’s transfer window are ring-fenced and won’t be affected by the membership’s dedication to pursue an bold £100m redevelopment of Selhurst Park’s principal stand.
Palace, 18th within the Premier League after the worst-ever begin to a top-flight marketing campaign and no away goal in the division since April, have unveiled eye-catching plans for the redevelopment of their residence of greater than 93 years which might improve the capability from 26,300 to 34,000. The unique principal stand can be rebuilt as a glass-fronted, 13,500-seat stand with the design, drawn up by KSS, who oversaw Liverpool’s revamp of Anfield, to be submitted for planning permission to Croydon council subsequent month.
