I'm a promising footballer, can I have a trial?
Crystal Palace Football Club Academy does not hold open trial dates. We have a large scouting network with scouts watching games and tournaments in and around London.
This is our main source of recruiting young and talented players. Our scouts are watching, school, county, regional and district games and tournaments across all age groups.
If the scout feels that the player has shown potential to play at Academy level, an approach will be made to the manager of your club or school as well as your parents and you will be invited in for a trial with Crystal Palace Football Club.
Can I do work experience at Crystal Palace?
If you would like to apply to undertake work experience in one of our many departments at the club during your school year please apply to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance. There are only a limited number of places available through the year and we would suggest that you apply with as much notice as possible with regard to your planned start date of your experience.
We will need details of your school, your age and also details of the department which you wish to join for your work experience.
