Crystal Palace are moving to a new home for the start of the 2023/24 Barclays Women’s Championship, playing home games at Sutton United FC.

Bromley FC had hosted Palace’s matches since 2014, with a few games at Selhurst Park, which will stage two matches this coming campaign.

The League Two ground has a capacity of more than 5,000 and Palace hope to benefit from a strong Eagles’ fanbase in the area.

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish told “This is an exciting new start for Palace Women, playing at a historic, local stadium that will be familiar to many of our supporters, and we hope to attract fresh support for the club. We are hugely grateful for Bromley FC’s long-standing support for Palace Women and we would like to thank them for their hospitality over many years, the move is in large part driven by the WSL requirement for a grass pitch.”

Sutton United vice-chairman Adrian Barry said: “We are delighted to welcome Crystal Palace Women to the VBS and look forward to furthering the extremely strong relationship the clubs have always enjoyed. Our discussions with them over the summer have been extremely positive and collaborative, leading to what we’re sure will be a mutually beneficial partnership.”
