Away Day Guide – Crystal Palace
Fulham’s Premier League campaign resumes with a trip to Selhurst Park on Monday afternoon, 26th December, kick off 3pm.
All away tickets for this fixture have sold out. There will be no tickets available for Fulham supporters to purchase at Selhurst Park on matchday.
Getting to Selhurst Park
Fulham fans are advised that it will prove exceptionally difficult to get to this fixture by public transport. No trains will be running in London on Boxing Day. Buses will be operational – and supporters are advised to plan their route in advance by using Transport for London’s Journey Planner. It is recommended to add in extra time for your journeys as buses are expected to be very busy.
If you are planning to travel by car, you should come off the M25 at Junction 7 and follow the signs for the A23 towards Croydon. At Purley, veer left onto the A23 at the junction with A235. Head through Croydon and straight over several roundabouts until you reach Thornton Heath – where there is a roundabout at the Horseshoe pub. Go straight over into Brigstock Road (the B266) and pass Thornton Heath station on your left. Head right onto the High Street and, at the next mini roundabout, turn left into Whitehorse Lane. Selhurst Park will come into view on your right. Fulham fans should note that there is no parking available at the stadium, although you have been able to park for three hours at the nearby Sainsbury’s car park in the past.
The two traditional pre and post-match pubs for Fulham fans at Crystal Palace are The Prince George (2 High Street, Thornton Heath, CR7 8LE) – which is about a ten minute walk from the away end – and The Railway Telegraph (19 Brigstock Road, Thornton Heath, CR7 7JJ), which is about fifteen minutes away on foot.
Alternatively, alcohol is available in the ground including Carlsberg (£4.50), Somersby (£4.50) and wine (£4.50).
Tribute to George Cohen
The Premier League have announced that all fixtures on Boxing Day and up to 28th December will be preceded by a minute’s applause in memory of former Fulham full back George Cohen. Players and officials will wear black armbands to remember our World Cup winner.
