Crystal Palace Football Club are saddened to announce the sudden and tragic passing of Fergus McGovern. 

Fergus has been a near permanent fixture in the boardroom at Palace for over 15 years, becoming one of the clubs first Associate Directors.  He was also a Vice Chair of the Palace Foundation, always supporting events with not only attendance but significant financial contributions.
 
In his professional life Fergus was one of the most successful talents within the video games industry, with over 30 years’ experience in interactive game and toy development. His position as one of the world's foremost game developers was cemented during his time as founder and President of Probe Entertainment.
 
Fergus was also granted the Freedom of the City of London for his charity work.

He will be sorely missed by everyone at the club and our deepest sympathy go to his wife Deanna and his children, Abby, Ryan and Ella.
