The new Crystal Palace crest sees the year 1905 replaced with 1861, the year the original Crystal Palace Club were formed by cricketers.

The year 1905 was when the professional club were founded.

The remainder of the crest will stay the same.

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish said: “As a lifelong supporter of Crystal Palace, I was proud to learn that our history can be traced back to the Victorian cricketers of 1861 and the indisputable fact that the club played a central role in the very first FA meetings, which shaped the game we all love. It is fitting that we are recognising our unique history which began in 1861 in our famous crest.”

The updated Crystal Palace crest will appear on the new 2022-23 Crystal Palace kits.
