Do You Remember Your First Palace Game?

1 September 2016

Do you remember your first Palace game? If so then the Palace Programme want to hear from you!

This season we are profiling some fans' best tales of their first time watching the Eagles in action, as they reminisce about their oldest recollections of seeing their heroes in red and blue.

It doesn't matter what era you first started supporting the club - we're looking for a range of contributors aged from eight to 80 but who have a special tale from the first time they saw Crystal Palace play.

We want to hear about the whole day - including your travel to the ground, who you spent the day with, any funny stories and your first thoughts of watching Palace play.

It could have been at Selhurst Park in its various incarnations, or maybe it was a memorable away day around the country. Maybe it was a famous day at Wembley, or maybe even a match abroad - the more obscure the better!

If you would like to see your first match published in the programme next season, simply answer the questions below and send us a 400 - 500 word report of your recollections of the whole day and a current photograph to

The best 19 will be included throughout the next 12 months, so get in touch!
