About Crystal Palace FC

Crystal Palace Football Club is an English professional football club based in South Norwood, London, that plays in the Premier League, the highest tier in English football.

The club was founded in 1905 at the famous Crystal Palace Exhibition building, and they played at the FA Cup Final stadium which was situated inside the historic Palace grounds. The club played their home games at the Cup Final venue until 1915, but then the First World War forced them to move out and play at Herne Hill Velodrome and the Nest. In 1924, the club moved to their current home at Selhurst Park.

Palace have been FA Cup finalists twice and on both occasions they finished runners-up to Manchester United in 1990 and 2016. Their best ever top flight season came in 1990–91 when the club challenged for the English league title, eventually finishing in third place in the top division, their highest league position to date. Palace were denied a place in Europe at the end of that season due to the partial UEFA ban on English clubs caused by the Heysel Stadium disaster. The club became founder members of the Premier League in 1992. Palace were winners of the Full Members Cup in 1991 when they beat Everton in the Wembley final. Palace have been second tier champions twice and hold the record for the most play-off wins for 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.
