Crystal Palace currently play in the Premier League and they wear red and blue striped home shirts which were first used in the 1970s. Cinch, UK’s fastest growing online car marketplace, is the current sponsor. The kits for Palace are supplied by Macron who overtook Puma in the 2022-23 season.
Crystal Palace 23/24 Kits
23/24 Crystal Palace Home Shirt
The 2023/24 home shirt of Crystal Palace was produced by Macron and celebrated the club’s 10th anniversary in the Premier League since promotion. This was reflected with the red and blue half-and-half design, which was a theme also seen in their 2013/14 home kit. As a nod to the club’s foundation and roots, a silhouette of the glass structure of the Crystal Palace Exhibition building adorned the above mentioned colour dynamic. White detailing, such as the red and blue pinstripe demarcation and the trims on the cuffs and collar, completed the look of the jersey.

Crystal Palace’s 2023/24 Macron way was inspired by the club’s original colours dating back to 1861. As such, the kit was mostly white with sky blue accent. This was mostly seen on the trims on the sleeve cuffs and collar, but more prominently on the distinctive sash design. The said visual contained a repeating pattern of the text ‘CRYSTAL PALACE FOUNDED 1861.’ Signing off at the back below the neckline was a black wording that read ‘EAGLES.’

First introduced on the away shirt, the brushstroke striping reappeared on Crystal Palace’s Macron 2022/23 home jersey. The outfit had a base colour of deep blue, giving visibility to the tonal overlap of the red stripes. It also maintained the broad profile for the white sleeve cuffs and round collar and their offset edge striping in red and blue.

Inspired by their past kits with a sash design, Crystal Palace adopted a diagonally striped shirt for the 2021/22 season. The new bold look was the first time such striping orientation was adopted and featured the traditional colours of blue and red, with the former further incorporating dark borders. The raglan sleeves shared the same shade of red, while the sleeve cuffs and collar applied the same tone of blue.

Crystal palace sported a similar design for their 2020/21 home, away, and third kits, the first time they had done so since the club’s promotion in the 2012/13 campaign. Central to all the shirts was the three vertical bands that occupy the laterals and centre of the shirt. The relatively wide bands stretched from the hemline up to the chest area, with the centre band ending up with an arrow-shaped tip. The home shirt had a blue base colour with red bands. The Puma cats were white while the Crystal Palace badge was fully-coloured. The W88 logo was with official colours while the branding came in white.
Crystal Palace Away Kits
2022/23 Crystal Palace Away Shirt
Crystal Palace had technical partner Macron produce a white away shirt for its 2022/23 season. Predominantly white, the jersey showcased an eye-catching central vertical band with a red-and-blue half-and-half design on a brushstroke application. An offset narrow striping of the same colours ran parallel to the edge of the sleeve cuffs and round collar. The crest reflected the change of the club’s foundation to 1861, a result of extensive research detecting club activity in the said year. In addition, additional embossed crests subtly adorned the sleeves.

Men’s Crystal Palace Shirt
Crystal Palace wear home shirts comprising red and blue stripes and play their home games at Selhurst Park, South Norwood, London. The South London side with a nickname today of the Eagles, were founded in 1861 by staff working at the Great Exhibition in Paxtons Crystal Palace, they became the first team in the history of the game to play at an indoor stadium. There were no fears for the state of the pitch as the clear glass structure let natural light in to allow the grass to grow well.
The building did have its problems though and the regular breaking of glass from wayward shots meant the players had to develop skills in repairing them, which in turn earned them the nickname of ‘The Glaziers’.
Palace will always struggle to compete against its larger more financially supported London rivals, but has a reputation for never say die survival. Famous players to have worn a Palace shirt include Andy Gray, Ian Wright, Geoff Thomas, Kenny Sansom, Jim Cannon, Nigel Martyn, Andrew Johnson, Attilio Lombardo, John Salako and Paul Hinshelwood. Crystal Palace received £8,600,000 a club record from Everton for Andy Johnson in June 2006.
