CRYSTAL Palace will face Tottenham Hotspur live on television on Sunday, August 18 (1.30pm) at Selhurst Park. The television fixtures for the Premier League have been released this morning, which sees Liverpool take on Stoke City on Saturday, August 17 (12.30pm) in the opening game on BT Sport. Sky Sports' opening game will be Swansea City versus Manchester United on the same day, with a 5.30pm kick-off. The Eagles have been booked in for five televised fixtures initially. The next game they're involved in on Sky Sports will be against Sunderland at Selhurst on Saturday, August 31 (5.30pm), while they will take travel to play Manchester United on BT Sport at 12.45pm on Saturday, September 14. Monday Night Football returns to SE25 on Sky Sports when Palace host Fulham on October 21 (8pm), while they will also welcome Arsenal to Selhurst on Saturday, October 26, which will be a 12.45pm kick-off on BT Sport. Palace co-chairman Steve Parish told the Croydon Advertiser sports desk this week that a number of ground improvements are currently being made, including a television studio. And with the national media set to descend on Selhurst Park this season, five new interview rooms and a media centre are being built, along with a refurbished press box. "There are new seats going in the Main Stand and we've got to try and build a new media centre too," Parish said. "We have to build five new interview rooms then put a television studio in between the Holmesdale and Arthur Wait Stands – it's just generally trying to tidy the stadium up. "It's about making the stadium look a little bit more presentable."
