Selhurst Park has had several renovations since its construction; and 1995 saw the completion of the two-tiered Holmesdale Road Stand.

The stadium has a rich history and, as well as hosting an England v Wales match, it also was the venue for two matches in the 1948 Olympics. 

In the past Crystal Palace has shared the stadium with Wimbledon and a previous partnership with Charlton represented the first ever ground-share in English league football history.
