Crystal Palace FC is an English football club based in South Norwood in London. They currently feature in the English Premier League.

History

London-based Crystal Palace were formed on September 10,1905 by workers at Crystal Palace. They were relatively an also-ran club until very recently and spent most of their time outside the English top flight.

Crystal Palace play their home matches at Selhurst Park, which can entertain a crowd of 26,309. The club is nicknamed The Eagles.

The club have been up and down in the top two divisions, but recently earned promotion in the 2012-13, going on an incredible run in the second-half of the 2013-14 Premiership season to finish 11th, with boss Tony Pulis named Premier League Manager of the season.

After Pulis, Alan Pardew led the Eagles to the 2016 FA Cup final, their first in 26 years, which they lost to Manchester United. Roy Hodgson took over in 2017 and has stably led the club since as they’ve remained in the top flight.
