Crystal Palace’s performance in the Premiership has been quite eventful. They started playing the Premiership in 1992-93. The same season, Crystal Palace dropped out of the top-flight in order to come back a season later. During the 1994-95 season they finished fourth from bottom, and were relegated as the number of teams in the Premier League was reduced to 20. In 1997, they beat Sheffield United in the final play offs to return to the top flight once again. But soon after, Crystal Palace faced relegation again. Last season, Crystal Palace beat West Ham 1-0 in the play-off final to secure promotion to the Barclays Premiership. Crystal Palace returned to the Premiership and will be keen to establish themselves in the top-flight.
