Crystal Palace Football Club

The Eagles, as fans refer to them, are famed for having one of the most passionate followings in the Premier League. The atmosphere at Selhurst Park and the loyal support given by fans through thick or thin make it an unforgettable place to visit. 

Founded in 1905, Crystal Palace FC was originally nicknamed ‘The Glaziers’, after the mass of glass panes used in Crystal Palace itself. The club was saved from the brink of extinction by new investment and owners in 2010, and secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2012-13 season, where the club has stayed ever since.

Based in South Norwood, in London, the team play home games in a red and blue striped kit and have an eagle as the club mascot.
