The 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.
The club receives a number of requests for free merchandise - e.g. souvenirs, keyrings, posters etc but please note that no merchandise is sent as complimentary. All items can be purchased via the online shop which can be found here.
The club receive hundreds of requests of this nature and we endeavour to help as many good causes as possible, but unfortunately we are unable to grant every request we receive.
Please note that, due to the volume of requests we receive, your event must be held in the Greater London area.
The club accept requests for appearances by our players at local events but at least four weeks notice must be given and no guarantee is possible with regards to specific players.
All requests should be sent in the appropriate time frame here and will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
