Crystal Palace's Under 21s can take a big step towards qualifying for the Premier League International Cup tonight when they welcome Benfica to the VBS Community Stadium, kick off 7pm.
Palace have four points from their two games so far, having beaten Monaco and drawn with Athletic Bilbao, and victory tonight against the top Portuguese side, whose academy produced the likes of current Premier League stars Ederson, Rúben Dias, Bernardo Silva and João Felix, would put them in a strong place to qualify for the last eight. Benfica's only game so far in the competition was a 1-1 draw against Liverpool.
Admission is £5 for adults and £2 for over 64s and under 16s. Admission is available on the night, but tickets can also be bought on line in advance. For further information and to buy tickets on line, click here.
There is no public parking at the ground, with the car park reserved for players and officials only.
This is the first of three Crystal Palace Under 21 games on the ground in the space of twelve days, with a home Premier League Cup game against Middlesbrough next Monday and West Ham the visitors in Premier League 2 the following Monday, while Palace's women are in Women's FA Cup action this Sunday against Chatham Town, kick off 1pm. As we have not been able to find a mutually acceptable alternative venue and kick off time, our women's game against Aylesford this Sunday has been postponed.
