Selhurst Park



Selhurst Park

Eric Cantona will never live his trip to Selhurst Park down.

Location: Whitehorse Lane, Croydon

Description: Selhurst Park is the home ground of Crystal Palace Football Club in South London. It was officially opened in 1924 and today it's present capacity is 26,309.

Charlton FC and Wimbledon FC have both shared playing here in the past.

The record attendance here was in 1979, when 51,801 saw Crystal Palace defeat Burnley 20 to clinch the Football League Second Division championship.

It also holds the dubious record for the lowest attendance for a single Premier League game - 3,039 during the Wimbledon v. Everton, 26 January 1993.

It was also the scene for Eric Cantona's incredible kung-fu kick on a fan after he was sent off for Manchester United in 1995.
