Crystal Palace Football Club is a professional football team based in South Norwood in south-east London and playing in the Coca-Cola Football League Championship, the second level of English football.

The club celebrated its Centennial in 2005.

Known as the “Eagles”, Crystal Palace’s traditional arch rivals are known as the “Seagulls”, Brighton & Hove Albion, and local rivals the “Lions”, Millwall and Charlton Athletic.

They have never won a major trophy in their history, although they did win the penultimate Full Members Cup in 1991.

In 1990 they reached the FA Cup final, drawing 3-3 with Manchester United in the first match but losing 1-0 in the replay. They have been members of the top flight on several occasions since 1969, and were founder members of the Premiership in 1992. However, all four of their Premiership campaigns have ended in relegation.
