Crystal Palace have begun building work on their Selhurst Park home in order for the stadium to conform to Premier League protocol regarding Covid-19.
Along with Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge and Burnley’s Turf Moor, Selhurst Park was flagged as one of the top flight stadiums where limited space was a concern.
The Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ protocol includes measures such as the away team taking to the field first in order to preserve social distancing guidelines.
Keeping a safe distance apart in the changing rooms is also part of the protocol too – something players and officials may find difficult to achieve at the Eagles’ poky home.
The Standard report that Palace have had to knock through some walls at Selhurst Park in order to tackle the issue.
Roy Hodgson’s side don’t return to home Premier League action until Monday 29 June.
