FOREVER PALACE

 FOREVER PALACE

The Holmesdale Fanatics Ultras CPFC are a supporters group following Crystal Palace FC from whom are 100% independent.

They are based exclusively in block B of the Holmesdale Road Stand with members standing throughout the block behind the main group banner, This banner is the physical representation of their group and is displayed proudly at the front of their area during every game.

The group follows the 'Ultra' mentality of support in that they exist primarily to support Crystal Palace and show their love for their club, their group and their colours.

This is achieved through a combination of 90 mins of chanting at games, displaying flags and banners and pre match tifo displays which are funded, created and organised solely by their members. It is also important to them to recognise and honour hero's of Crystal Palace and as such they're extra supportive to former and current players and staff who have served the club for a long time and whose mentality is one of loyalty and commitment to CPFC.

Their many members hold different roles within the group, with several aspects needing to be organised on a weekly basis by their six man leadership committee. Many supporting members are happy however just to join in with the group mentality on matchdays, whether this be chanting in block b, setting up tifos or just joining in with the displays themselves.

Others prefer to take a more active role and dedicate hours of work and money to furthering the group. However people want to get involved is fine with them.


They hold the view that any group is only as strong as those members within it and therefore we continually look for and encourage ANY new members of ALL ages to play as big or small a part as they desire as long as they support and respect the groups mentality.

To get involved, please don't hesitate to contact them through one of the methods at your disposal.

As an independent group our role is also to attempt to put power back in the hands of the real fans who are being increasingly ignored and sidelined in the overpriced, over-governed soulless world of modern football.

The repression and poor treatment by the authorities of innocent supporters and over priced tickets are things that all fans have to contend with and HF are a union to safeguard and represent the their members in these issues.

Essentially, the group is what football should be all about; having fun, getting drunk, making new mates and meeting people who want to support CPFC.
