Success Stories

Our focus is on helping players to fulfil their potential within football. If that is progressing into Pre-Academy and Academy football, our experienced coaches are well placed to support that journey.

Since the inception of the Crystal Palace Player Pathway at Palace for Life Foundation, and the introduction of our Tier 1 and Tier 2 system, we have seen 40 players progress into Pre-Academy ID trials or showcase games with Crystal Palace Academy. From this, eight players have signed with the club. Some players unfortunately, did not get offers, but they are now playing at other London academies and we wish them all the best. 

Since the introduction of our Tier 3 Talent Centre this season, and our new open trials, we have seen 18 children have trials with the Pre-Academy and Youth Development showcase programmes just this season.
