For young football fans, meeting their idols is the stuff of dreams. For young Crystal Palace fans, those dreams can come true.
On Tuesday November 21st, Crystal Palace will be taking over Boxpark Croydon, hosting a free event where fans can come to meet the players.
The even takes place every year, previously being held at the Whitgift shopping centre in Croydon. This year, Roy Hodgson will arrive at Boxpark at 5pm, joined by members of both the first team and Crystal Palace Ladies team. They will meet fans, sign autographs and pose for pictures.
There will also be the chance for paid members and season ticket holders to enter a FIFA 18 tournament. Fans can compete alongside Palace stars against other fan and player duos, with all the matches streamed onto a large screen for everyone to see.
This annual event is the perfect opportunity for young Palace fans to meet their heroes and lift their spirits after a disappointing start to the season.
