“The Crystal Palace was the world’s first major theme park,” Manning stated. “It was owned and run by the Crystal Palace Business.

” Whatever within the Palace and its premises belonged to the Crystal Palace’s and the Crystal Palace Business’s business, consisting of the Crystal Palace Cricket Club, established in 1857, the introduction of the football club in 1861, through to the establishing and the taking of a bulk share stake in the professional football club in 1905.

” As the starting of the football club dates back to 1861, it can claim to be the oldest professional league club in the world.

” It’s paradoxical that today the one making it through residue of the Crystal Palace Business, Crystal Palace Football Club, is now the big crowd puller, the big money earner that the Crystal Palace Business constantly desired it to be.

“I’m sure it would have been extremely proud of what it has now achieved as a football club.”

It would suggest Palace will commemorate their 160 th anniversary in 2021, with the news shocking chairman Steve Parish.

“As a lifelong supporter of Crystal Palace, it’s amazing that we have a legitimate claim to be the oldest professional league club still in existence, that we were in the very first FA meetings, and that our history dates all the way back to the Victorian cricketers of 1861 at the Palace even involving the great W.G. Grace,” he stated.

” I would like to thank Peter Manning for the extraordinary work he has actually carried out investigating the conclusive history of the club.

“It’s a fascinating tale and one I hope supporters will very much enjoy seeing brought to life in this film.”
