Buying Crystal Palace Resale Tickets via Ticket Compare

Ticket Compare is a price comparison platform, finding the cheapest prices on the most reliable ticket resale sites. Every site on Ticket Compare has been independently vetted by us with an anonymous purchase and a detailed review. Ticket Compare offers:

  • Availability for every match
  • Authentic CPFC tickets
  • Handy price and seat location filters

For many fans, resale tickets are the only way to get to Crystal Palace matches, as tickets sell out for almost every game.

If you’re putting plans together for an opulent day out in hospitality, or there’s a Crystal Palace match that you absolutely cannot miss, then Ticket Compare is the perfect option.

Bear in mind that the lowest-attended match at Selhurst Park in 2023-24 was Burnley, with 24,042, which is still 94% capacity on a quiet day. Even for this game, the lower attendance may have been down to Burnley not filling their away allocation.

Never rely on CPFC tickets going on general sale.

How to buy Palace Tickets via Ticket Compare

Simply click on the orange “Tickets” button next to the fixture of your choice. This will take you through to a page with a stadium plan and list of seats, allowing you to filter by price and seat location.

Each option is also labelled with a specific resale marketplace. For extra peace of mind, you can browse our independent verdicts of each of these website via our ticket site reviews page.

After selecting your seat, you’ll be redirected to the specific website to complete your purchase

Receiving Your Crystal Palace Tickets

Primary outlets only release tickets about a week before a match. Whether you’re receiving a mobile ticket or PDF, you’ll likely get your CPFC ticket between 1 and 2 days before kick-off.

You will receive regular updates from the vendor, providing plenty of reassurance, and the opportunity to ask questions about the process, from receiving tickets to getting into the stadium.

Tips for Buying CPFC Resale Tickets for the First Time

  • Remember that you always have rights as a customer, and all of the websites listed on our platform outline their terms and conditions
  • Read the refund policies carefully to know where you stand and avoid disappointment
  • Be prepared to pay above the original price of the ticket, or ‘face value’
  • As we mentioned, it’s not unusual to receive tickets within 24 hours of kick-off
  • Occasionally your ticket will have someone else’s name on it, but this won’t affect how they’re scanned at the turnstile
  • Check online review platforms like Trustpilot to gauge customer satisfaction
  • Feel free to reach out to resale marketplaces, as they usually have responsive customer service

Entering Selhurst Park with a Digital Crystal Palace Ticket

There are new scanners at the turnstiles, and you’ll need to have your digital wallet ready with your pass displayed as you approach.

If you’re not using Apple Wallet or Google Pay, the scanner will also read the ticket QR code off your phone screen.

On resale sites, CPFC ticket prices are affected by a number of factors, from the level of opposition to the time of the fixture. Other influences include the point in the season and the stakes surrounding the match.

On the primary market Crystal Palace ticket prices range from £48 to £58 for general admission seats. These prices depend on the seating Category, running from 1 to 5. Category 1 seats are near the halfway line in the Main Stand, while Category 5 seats are behind the goal in the shortside stands.

Useful Information about Crystal Palace Tickets

If you’re buying on the primary market, CPFC Tickets tend to go on sale between eight weeks and six weeks before a fixture. Keep in mind that fixtures are moved around throughout the season because of schedule conflicts and TV programming.

On resale sites, CPFC tickets can often go on sale as soon as the fixtures are released. So it’s worth making sure you can be flexible about the date you attend, or avoid buying until you’ve seen that the fixture has been confirmed.

Refunds are never given out if you can’t make a rescheduled fixture.

Finally, if you’re wondering why Palace resale tickets can be so expensive, it’s down to demand, which is the main thing that drives the price of tickets on the secondary market. Resale platforms will always remind you that the price of the tickets you buy could be above or below face value.

Here are some tips for getting cheaper Crystal Palace resale tickets:

  • Opt for midweek Crystal Palace matches
  • Purchase your tickets a long time in advance (but be aware of any schedule changes)
  • Be ready to compromise on seat location

  • 20 points for all home games
  • 20 points for big and local away games against the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, Brighton & Hove Albion, Liverpool and Manchester United

Cup Game points are announced when the cup draws are made

Crystal Palace Hospitality Tickets

Now, if you really want to treat yourself and friends, or if you’re willing to shell out a little more to get Palace tickets, official hospitality is always an option.

This is one aspect of the Selhurst Park matchday experience that will be transformed with the reconstruction of the Main Stand. This project will boost the stadium capacity to more than 34,000, up from 25,486. Just as important is the impact the new stand will have on hospitality, adding 25,072 sqm of interior space.

For now the main hospitality lounges at Selhurst Park are limited to:

  • Speroni’s Restaurant, with three-course dining, inclusive drinks, and seating in the Directors’ Box
  • Legends Restaurant, offering inclusive drinks, fine dining and pre-match entertainment from Palace legends
  • The 2010 Club, with the same fine dining menu as the CPFC boardroom, and seating in the Directors’ Box

Crystal Palace Match Days at Selhurst Park

“The fans are unbelievable. Selhurst Park has a top atmosphere and it's difficult for opponents to visit us.”

Crystal Palace defender Joachim Andersen

“I do not think there is a better atmosphere in the Premier League than Selhurst Park.”

BBC 5 Live Commentator Ian Dennis

Every club calls their stadium ‘special’, but it’s absolutely true for Selhurst Park. With CPFC tickets you’ll be immersed in what may be the best atmosphere in the Premier League. A 2023 fan survey by website The Athletic placed Selhurst Park third in the league:

  1. Anfield - Liverpool
  2. Goodison Park - Everton
  3. Selhurst Park - Crystal Palace
  4. St. James’ Park - Newcastle United

We’d say this is unfair on Selhurst Park, but the stadium is in good company, and sits alone among London Premier League grounds. It’s all powered by the Holmesdale Fanatics, in the shortside stand of the same name, singing all match long.

With the unofficial motto, “South London and Proud” the club does its best to cultivate a sense of community, celebrating diversity and inclusivity with matchday events throughout the season.

Holmesdale Fanatics at Selhurst Park

Styled like a benign version of continental ‘ultras’ groups, this fan group was founded in 2005. They’ve been in the Holmesdale Road Stand ever since, and relocated to the Holmesdale Lower in 2019, around Block E.

The Holmesdale Fanatics’ aim is to revive some of the better things about English crowds before the Taylor Report (1990), which introduced all-seater stadiums and banned fans from standing.

The Holmesdale Fanatics are known for their awesome large-scale displays, constant singing, and for campaigning for causes like the official £30 cap on away tickets.

Getting to Crystal Palace FC

We advise getting public transport to Selhurst Park, which sits about 15 minutes on foot from three railway stations. These are Norwood Junction, Thornton Heath and Selhurst.

If you’re heading from the centre of London, the swiftest route is on the Southern service from London Bridge to Norwood Junction, which takes just 12 minutes with no changes.

If you’re wondering where the nearest Tube station is to Selhurst Park, well you can get to Norwood Junction on the London Overground, connecting with West Croydon for Southern Rail services and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line.

The 468 and 130 TFL buses both stop near Selhurst Park, connecting with Croydon and Elephant & Castle respectively.

Tips for Match Days at Selhurst Park

  • There’s a fanzone in the car park by the Main Stand, with activities for all ages and encounters with players, starting three hours before kick-off
  • Food options at CPFC’s fanzone include BBQ, jerk chicken, wraps and a range of vegan and vegetarian bites
  • Try to avoid driving a car to Selhurst Park as the stadium is in the heart of a dense residential area and parking is limited
  • If you’re within cycling range there’s free bicycle storage at the Information Centre in the main car park by Entrance 9
  • If you have any luggage larger than a small backpack, you can also leave it at the Information Centr

Concourse Food Options at Selhurst Park

There’s a wide choice of food across Selhurst Park’s park concourses, including Goddard’s Pies, sausage rolls, and a range of burgers. In 2023-24 the club rolled out a menu of vegan options, from vegan burgers to a vegan Tuscan bean pie.

Each of the stands have their own specialities. Here are our recommendations for bites at Selhurst Park, by stand:

Whitehorse Lane

  • Bratwurst with Onions

Arthur Wait

Selhurst Park Box Office

CPFC’s main ticket office is located inside the Club Shop on the corner of Whitehorse Lane by Sainsbury’s. The ticket office will be open approximately four hours before kick-off.

The box office is closed during the match, but does reopen for 30 minutes after the final whistle.

How Much is a Crystal Palace Season Ticket?

Crystal Palace Season Tickets start at £545 Holmesdale Road and Whitehorse Lane stands, rising to £755 in the Main Stand.

The average CPFC season ticket is somewhere around £640, which is cheap compared to London rivals like Spurs and Arsenal, costing £1,400+.

Concession ages are 18-21 and 65+, and all qualify for a third off the CPFC Season Ticket price. Juniors, under the age of 18, pay half price.

Sharing a Crystal Palace Season Ticket

CPFC Season Ticket+ holders can add friends and family to their account, and simply transfer their ticket to them with a Client Reference Number.

It’s a little more complicated for standard CPFC Season Ticket holders, who can’t add friends & family, but can share tickets with other Palace Members and Season Ticket holders match by match.

Is there a Waiting List for a Crystal Palace Season Ticket?

Yes, this is a first come, first served queue that you join for £10. After the spring renewal period in April you’ll find out if you’ve made it to the top of the list. Going by the current trend, you can expect to wait for one season, beyond the first renewal period.

Learn more in our guide to the Crystal Palace Season Ticket waiting list.

So How Many Season Ticket Holders Does Crystal Palace Have?

18,000, which is a lot for a 25,486-capacity stadium. In their current spell in the Premier League, Palace first reached this total before the 2016-17 season. It was then that the club first launched its waiting list to catch the overflow of people who missed out.

Crystal Palace Season Ticket+

Crystal Palace FAQs

Who are Crystal Palace’s biggest rivals?

Brighton & Hove Albion. This fixture is the M23 Derby, named for the road that links the south of Greater London with Brighton. Other traditional rivals are Charlton Athletic and Millwall, two South East London clubs.

Where is the best place to sit at Selhurst Park?

The lower tier of the Holmesdale Road Stand for atmosphere. For views, try the Main Stand in Blocks D to G, near the halfway line. Find your seat with the help of our guide to the Selhurst Park Seating Plan.

Has Crystal Palace ever won a trophy?

No, the short answer is that CPFC have never won a major trophy. They have been FA Cup runners up twice, in 1989-90 and 2015-16. They have also won a hatful of minor honours like the obsolete Full Members Cup in 1990-91, and a record four Championship play-off wins, in 1989, 1997, 2004 and 2013.

Have Crystal Palace ever played in Europe?

No, but they did enter the now discontinued UEFA Intertoto Cup in 1998. This was a backdoor to the UEFA Cup, for which Palace failed to qualify.

Why is Crystal Palace called the Eagles?

Because the team needed an inspiring emblem in the mid-1970s after being relegated to the old Second Division. Encouraged by manager, Malcolm Allison, they chose an eagle, inspired by Portuguese team S.L. Benfica, and picked much bolder shades of red and blue. Before that they were known as The Glaziers, which is a little less dynamic.

With Crystal Palace tickets you can savour Premier League action at a vibrant and community-oriented club with some of the best fans in the league. In the top flight since 2013, Palace always have exciting, skilful players, many who are local lads. No doubt Crystal Palace takes pride in where it comes from, with ‘South London and Proud’ now part of the club ‘s identity.
