Crystal Palace Football Club is a professional football club based in Selhurst in the Borough of Croydon, South London England, who currently compete in the Premier League, the highest level of English football. Although formally created as a professional outfit in 1905, the club claim to be a continuation of the original amateur Crystal Palace football club first established in 1861 at the Crystal Palace Exhibition building, after historians discovered a direct lineage through their ownership under the same Crystal Palace Company. Both the amateur and professional clubs played inside the grounds of the Palace, with the professional club using the FA Cup Final stadium for its home games until 1915, when they were forced to leave due to the outbreak of the First World War. In 1924, they moved to their current home at Selhurst Park.
