The kick-off of a new home campaign at Selhurst Park means a fresh look at the Palace matchday programme, which now has a pocket-friendly A5 size.
Scattered throughout the programme is a host of new content, but continues the tradition of in-depth interviews with the Eagles’ current players. The first programme of the season features new signing Max Meyer.
The midfielder offers some insight into how Palace stole a march on their rivals to land his signature, as well as talking about his rapid rise from Schalke’s youth ranks to full German international in a few years, plus how he's settling into south London life in an all-encompassing interview that you don’t want to miss.
This season, the programme will also celebrate the 30th, 40th and 50th anniversaries of the Eagles’ famous promotion campaigns in our special ‘Glory Days’ section. This will include a detailed story of each season, interviews with key players from those eras and reproduced match reports of the games that led to glory.
The programme also reaches its centenary this year, and we will be looking back at the way it has evolved since 1918 with a season-by-season recap, while back in the present day the first-team squad recall their favourite and sentential jerseys from their career in ‘Getting Shirty’.
All areas of the club will covered including the academy, development and Ladies squads, and we will hear from members of all three in ‘In Focus’. Elsewhere The Guardian’s Dominic Fifield will provide an exclusive insight into the weekly life of a football journalist in his regular column, plus Brickstand’s Chris Smith will be remaking iconic Palace photographs out of Lego!
The visitors’ section contains new content such as obscure facts about that day’s opponents while we attempt to compile the best starting XI of players who featured for both teams, and there will be collectable tear-out posters of the current squad for younger supporters, as well as classic shots for long-time fans. This week's pullout is a stunning Wilf Zaha picture to celebrate his new deal.
