The site was originally bought for £2,570 in 1922 with the stadium completing in 1924 with just the Main Stand. Floodlights were installed in 1953 and upgraded nine years later. Real Madrid played the first game under the new lights, their first ever game in London.
In 1969, Palace were promoted to the top division and consequently the Arthur Wait stand was built after their longest serving chairman.
Crystal Palace ground shared with Charlton Athletic from 1985, a first in the UK. In 1990 the lower section of the Arthur Wait stand was converted to seats as part of the Hillsborough Disaster fallout. Charlton moved out in 1991 and were replaced by the Crazy Gang of Wimbledon.
In 1994 the Holmesdale terrace was demolished and replaced with a two-tier stand, which remains the last work on the ground.
