Description
Available in:

Il Crystal Palace Football Club, noto più semplicemente come Crystal Palace, è una società calcistica inglese con sede a Londra, nel borgo di Croydon. Milita nella Premier League.

Il club fu fondato il 10 settembre 1905 dai proprietari dello stadio dove si teneva la finale di FA Cup, che desideravano che nello stadio giocasse una loro squadra.

La scelta dei colori sociali originari è stata ispirata dalla presenza nell'ambito societario di Edmund Goodman, ex impiegato dei Villans che si occupò dell'aspetto organizzativo del nuovo club e che ne fu allenatore dal 1907 al 1925. Attualmente i colori adottati sono il rosso vermiglio e il blu.

Nella sua storia la squadra londinese ha raggiunto i migliori risultati all'inizio degli anni novanta, guidata in attacco da Ian Wright, con la finale di FA Cup del 1990 persa al replay e il terzo posto in campionato nel 1991. In quell'anno vinse anche la Full Members Cup, competizione per le squadre delle prime due divisioni, giocatasi fra il 1986 e il 1992.

Stadium or Home

Selhurst Park is an association football stadium located in the London suburb of South Norwood in the Borough of Croydon. It is the current home ground of Crystal Palace Football Club playing in the Premier League.

In 1922 the site, a former brickfield, was bought from the Brighton Railway Company for £2,570. The stadium (designed by Scottish stadium architect Archibald Leitch) was constructed by Humphreys of Kensington (a firm regularly used by Leitch) for around £30,000, and was officially opened by the Lord Mayor of London on 30 August 1924. There was then only one stand (the present Main Stand), but this was unfinished due to industrial action; Crystal Palace played Sheffield Wednesday and lost 0–1 in front of 25,000 fans.

Two years later, in 1926, England played Wales in an international at the stadium. England amateur matches and various other finals were also staged there, as were other sports including boxing, bicycle polo (in the late 1940s) and cricket and music concerts (in the 1980s). In addition to this, it hosted two games for the 1948 Summer Olympics.

In 1953, the stadium's first floodlights were installed consisting of numerous poles around the 3 sides of terracing and four roof mounted installations on the Main Stand, but were replaced nine years later by floodlights mounted on, pylons in each corner and six installations on the Main Stand roof. Real Madrid marked the occasion by playing the first game under the new set of bulbs – a real footballing coup at the time for third division Palace, as it was Real's first ever match in London.
