Fulham have submitted a planning application to increase Craven Cottage's capacity to 30,000 from 25,700.

The ground has been the Barclays Premier League club's home since 1896 and in October they ended talk of a move away by revealing plans to overhaul the stadium. Fulham plan to develop the Riverside Stand in order to increase capacity up to 30,000, as well as undertaking wider facility improvements at the venue.

In a statement on the club's official website,, the club said: "Fulham Football Club today submitted an application to the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, for the redevelopment of the Riverside stand at its Craven Cottage home."
