Palace v Sunderland: The Programme

31 August 2013

Crystal Palace entertain Sunderland in their second Barclays Premier League game at Selhurst Park today - and what better way to whet your appetite for this evening's match than by picking up your new-look Palace programme.

The freshly-designed publication features an in-depth interview with cover star Kevin Phillips, who talks about his prolific six-year spell with today's opponents and reveals his targets for the 2013/14 season with the Eagles. 

We also speak to former Newcastle United defender Peter Ramage, who discusses his pride at captaining Palace against Bristol City in midweek and his hunger to beat his north-east rivals today. 

Palace fans Kevin Day, Chris Waters and Alex Warner reflect on our start to the season, while Alan Parry, who will be commentating on today's game for Sky Sports, is this week's guest writer in our regular From the Press Box page. 

There are a host of brand new features, including My Dream XI, as Yannick Bolasie talks us through his team, based on players he has played with and against during his career, while Damien Delaney reveals that he supported Sunderland's great rivals Newcastle United as a youngster, in Footballing Firsts. 

We'll have the first update on our season-long Fantasy Football competition, giving fans the chance to face-off against Palace players, staff, journalists and our very own cheerleaders throughout the course of the 2013/14 campaign.

Meanwhile, club historian Ian King takes a look at players that have represented both clubs down the years in his 'Foot In Both Camps' feature, and Mark Bright returns with the next instalment of his regular new Palace programme column, in which he discusses his 'deja vous' moment at Bristol City.

Ahead of the game, you can scan the QR code on the back of the programme for an extensive match preview and team news, and again after the final whistle for a full match report.  

All this and a whole lot more is available in an 80-page perfect-bound publication from sellers around Selhurst Park and is priced at £3.50. 

And if you didn't manage to get your hands on a copy of the Tottenham Hotspur programme two weeks ago, extra copies of this edition will also be available prior to kick-off.
