Come Along On Opening Day
Crystal Palace FC will be hosting an Olympic-themed Community Day in our opening fixture of the season to celebrate the success of London 2012.
Our match against Watford on Saturday August 18th, kick-off 3.00pm, comes just six days after the closing ceremony of this year's Games.
Marketing manager Sharon Lacey said, “The Community Day is all about bringing people together and letting supporters know, whatever their age, we will have something for them on the day."
The interactive area of the car park will be showcasing what local sports clubs have to offer kids of all ages from 1.00pm.
There will be many opportunities to join in on tasters for sports such as korfball, volleyball, archery, badminton, martial arts, hockey, climbing, lacrosse, football and dance.
There will also be workshop classes where you can design a new CPFC badge, visit our mobile Apple classroom, learn how to face paint and even have a go at DJing.
You can meet our CPFC Foundation coaches who can give you advice on how you can improve your game, have a go at our fastest shot competition, win some prizes and could even meet a couple of our players! A real chance to come along and learn skills and drills with our very own Foundation team of coaches.
CPFC will be giving freebies away in the interactive area including posters, wristbands and t-shirts. You can also meet the Crystals, Pete and Alice and some of their special friends.
You will be delighted to read that all the above games, samples and activities will be available free of charge so everyone come down and make opening day of 2012/13 a massive success.
