Following the highly welcome decision by the Football Foundation and the FA to partner with Communities First and Croydon Council to bring a new 3G Pitch to Selhurst Sports Arena, the Design has now been completed by Surfacing Standards Ltd.

Louis Blair Director of Operations at Communities First added:
"The installation of a 3G Pitch at Selhurst is incredible news and will generate thousands of new football and training opportunities in areas where it is badly needed. We applaud the support of the FA and Football Foundation but also thank Crystal Palace and London Sport for their support and the incredibly hard work of our Lead Consultant, Cara Demetriades . And without the confidence and partnership of Croydon Council none of this would be possible".

The plan now is to tender for the contract and with the installation set for March/April 2016, sporting life at Selhurst Sports Arena is about to get so much better.
