Co-chairman Steve Parish is set to announce plans to move to an "exciting new venue'' in a press conference on Thursday, January 20.

Line drawings and artists' impressions of the new site will be available to view at the offices of TAG Worldwide following the presentation. Should Palace move to the athletics stadium, then there could be a knock-on effect of Tottenham Hotspur's proposal to move to the 2012 Olympic Stadium, which was planned to be offset by the club's backers paying for a renovation of Crystal Palace.
