Ranked: 12th in Premier League

Crystal Palace Football Club is a professional football club based in Selhurst, London, that plays in the Premier League.

The club was founded in 1905 at the famous Crystal Palace Exhibition building by the owners of the FA Cup Final stadium which was situated inside its historic grounds. Palace played their home games at the Cup Final venue until 1915 when they were forced to leave. In 1924, the club moved to their current home at Selhurst Park.

Palace have been FA Cup finalists twice, losing to Manchester United on both occasions in 1990 and 2016. Palace enjoyed their best ever top flight season in 1990–91 when they challenged for the English league title, eventually finishing in third place in the top tier, their highest ever league position. The club were denied a place in Europe at the end of that season due to the partial UEFA ban on English clubs following the Heysel Stadium disaster. Palace won the Full Members Cup the same year when they defeated Everton in the Wembley final. Palace were one of the original founding members of the Premier League. As well as winning the second tier title twice, the club also hold the record for the most play-off wins resulting in promotion to the top flight, winning the final four times.

In 1973, the club changed its original nickname from "The Glaziers" to "The Eagles" and introduced the red and blue vertical stripes now associated with the club. The club had previously played in claret and blue colours. Palace have rivalries with Brighton & Hove Albion, with whom they contest the M23 derby, and fellow South London clubs Millwall and Charlton Athletic.

Enough......bullshitting about ‘not knowing what a nazi salute is’.

I seriously don't see why our club need to advertise this message. In over 40 years of going I've never heard one iota of racist abuse. Stop publicising a cause that doesn't need publicising at our club and let those clubs with a problem pick up the baton.

Is no one aware of the racism then cos it's all I hear about that and Brexit

Um, once y’all figure it out can you share it with us Yanks, please? 😉❤️🤷🏼‍♀️😑

Hope this helps. At least it raises the awareness even more. We are one

So much money is wasted on these marketing style campaigns... each club should have a few people each game in different places each game and film anyone shouting racist comments... ban anyone doing it... and advertise that the club operates this process... cheap and effective... that kick it out campaign is just cash for marketing and actions sod all...if you want to change something then actions not words are required

buy\martin ødegaard from vttesse, best in holland, ajax whant him owner real madrid, best in holland a gift paggage to palace.

Not sure if anyone else has ever experienced seeing racist chants... I've never actually seen it.. perhaps I'm just lucky to support a club with decent supporters

That it needs to be said in this day and age is disheartening.

Negative comments on here already. Facebook and social media should come with an intelligence test before you can use it.

I pray u beat arsenal this sunday

Has anyone told Hennessy?

Well done on ending racism 🤜🏻

I pity u guys on sunday. Arsenal 6-0 palace

Just for a moment I thought this was about the negative, turgid football we have been playing. Then i saw the small print. Never mind.

Should probably focus on our goalkeeper first

Embarrassing timing

Rohan stop

Stop Racism! everybody be like 🙌👏👏👏👏👏 Meanwhile LGBT?, everyone 👎👎👎👎👎

Great contribution to retail shame he can’t have the same effect in the pitch

Going back to claret and blue?... 🤔

Not playing, only for commercials

Please post photos😍😁


“Here Max, fancy modelling some T-Shirts and stuff for a video” “I’m not even playing you fucking pricks” “Yeah well then you’ve got loads of free time haven’t you” “God sake, yeah okay let’s go, but I’m not getting on a fucking tram, okay?”

That’s great, you all have made those kids day. Thank you for your time.

Glad Wayne wasn't telling the guy taking the photos to hurry up!

I love my club! ❤️💙

Shame there wasnt more 1st team players there

Both our boys attended this today and have not stopped going on about much fun they had.
