Our ambition is to become one of the top academies in the country.—Gary Issott, Academy Director
Our Academy is the pride of Crystal Palace Football Club, producing graduates throughout the years such as Kenny Sansom, Steve Kember, Vince Hilaire, Victor Moses, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Wilfried Zaha.
The Palace Academy underwent extensive redevelopment and secured Category 1 status in the summer of 2020. It was opened to the public in October 2021 by former Palace Academy graduate, and current England National Team manager, Gareth Southgate.
