Founded in 1905 at the famous Crystal Palace Exhibition building, Crystal Palace is one of London’s most historical football clubs. Located in south London, the Premier League club has a dedicated fan base that has come into its own in recent years, turning Selhurst Park stadium into a veritable cauldron of noise, whoever the opposition.

Like all Premier League clubs, Crystal Palace’s season runs from August to May, with a sprinkling of cup games on top of that (though sadly the club shows no sign of adding to its schedule with European fixtures) If you’d like to know specific dates for their home fixtures, these are available to view on the club’s official website and at various other online sources.
Our match ticket search results
Games at Crysal Palace can sometimes be in high demand, particularly now that they are an established Premier League club, but nonetheless some tickets are usually available on general sale. There are a number of ways you can get yourself a ticket for a game that shouldn’t break the bank, and we’ve picked out three of the best. We hope you’ll find our selection useful.
StubHub have been one of the main movers and shakers in the ticket resale market since their establishment back in 2000. They act as an intermediary for anyone seeking to buy and sell tickets for events across sport, music, theatre and other entertainment. This means they don’t actually own tickets, but the risk of fakes is still low and to assuage any concerns they promise to provide comparable or better tickets if there’s any problem at the gate. Sellers can post tickets at any price they wish, and StubHub slice off a commission from every sale. They can then arrange to meet the seller in person to get the tickets or have them delivered. They also offer VIP tickets too. Based on reviews, ticket delivery is rapid and hassle free and they also provide superb customer service. Ticket availability is excellent too, with our searches for Crystal Palace bringing up tickets for every game scheduled for the rest of the season, and with rates as low as £80 for certain fixtures.
Another reliable option is a ticket resale agency such as Ticketgum who purchase tickets from club members and then resell them on at a mark-up. While this can sometimes hit you hard in the pocket, it’s a secure way of buying tickets, as Ticketgum officially own them so there’s absolutely no chance of fakes. There also seems to be availability for pretty much every game Crystal Palace play, according to our searches. Prices tend to move around a fair bit, and the nearer to the match the more you’ll probably need to spend. After buying your tickets, they’re sent by express delivery to your favoured address, which can even be a hotel if you’re only in London for the game. You’re then given a tracking number to keep tabs on the tickets as they make their way to you. Other positives about Ticketgum are that their policies include a 100% money back guarantee in the event of a game being cancelled and VIP tickets are also often available.
While Palace’s fanbase is one of the more dedicated, it’s still usually possible to get tickets through the official route. Tickets for home games at Selhurst Park are first made available by the club to season ticket holders and club members, with any tickets left over then going on general sale. The maximum number of tickets you can buy through the club are four. When selecting your tickets, a clear layout of the stadium is provided, with seat availability highlighted so you can see all the options available. As well as standard tickets, the club also offers a number of exclusive Selhurst Park hospitality packages that include match-day tickets along with gourmet meals, bar access and other lavish services and amenities.
