You could get to Norwood Junction from London Bridge but not Victoria. However you can get to Selhurst from Victoria. Trains on Sunday usually crap but the travel card will suffice.

You can get to Norwood Junction from Victoria. Or Selhurst. Same distance to the ground from either, Selhurst is nearer to the Pawson's Arms.

Can you buy train tickets on the day or would it cost much more?

Great effort, good luck with it.

Always the option to leave early if things aren't going to well on the pitch :supergrin:

so you'll probably know the coach times and therefore should have an idea of how long it'll take.

Tube to Tottenham Hale from Victoria and the overground to Stansted maybe ?

if your just coming and going by train, use your contact-less credit/debit card - will work out cheaper for you, and save you having to bother with tickets.

Stupid name that - contactless, as you need to make contact to pay!

Android and Applepay also work (im led to believe!)

You don't actually have to make contact, just has to be close

yes but surely it all depends on the coach departure times as to whether or not you'd make it doesn't it ? sounds tight to me, personally I'd go by train

If you want drinks and food early you best bet will be going to the George or Lloyds (both wetherspoons ) in Croydon. Opens from 8 and on the early kicks offs is usually pretty busy with palace fans having an ale over breakfast. From there is a 5 min walk to either west or east Croydon stations

Selhurst and Thornton Heath are on the same line, so no need to walk from Selhurst to the Wetherspoons in TH, just get off one stop earlier

Looks like Stoke aren't bringing down many for this. More Palace tickets available, Arthur Wait block T.

Also, no trains between Horley and Purley on the Sunday at all, replacement bus.

Yes, plenty of tickets available in AW block T and the odd one or two elsewhere. Try logging out and back in or using a different device or browser.

The club said a couple of hours ago that more tickets had become available http://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/the-visit-of-stoke-city-is-the-next-home-game-for-crystal-palace-at-selhurst-park.-3301806.aspx
