Crystal Palace chairman Parish: We want to reach Everton, Newcastle cash level

Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has revealed their immediate ambitions.

With investment from American co-owners Joshua Harris and David Blitzer, the club - the tenth longest serving club in the Premier League - are preparing to undertake a £75-100million main stand extension which, with an extra 8,000 capacity and 2,000 more executive seats, Parish believes could increase annual match-day revenues by up to £25m, when crowds return.

"It's the financial bracket with clubs like Everton, Newcastle, Aston Villa, West Ham and Leeds we want to hit," Parish told the Daily Mail.

"There are relatively few clubs among the 92 in the pyramid who, if they were to get to the Premier League, can get around £50m to £55m annually in non-media income. We are at around £32m and we can get in that main group with that main stand extension. You just can't get any more out of that stadium as it is."
