Palace fans also had something else to cheer about after the club scored maximum marks for its club charter.

The Football Supporters’ Federation carried out a review of all club charters. Categories such as accessibility, timeliness, quality, clarity of complaints procedure, appeals process and contacts for the relevant league and Independent Football Ombudsman were all marked out of five.

Crystal Palace scored 35 out of 35 and topped the Championship table, they also scored more than Liverpool Football Club who were the highest scoring Premier League team with 23.

Club charters provide guidelines on club policy relating to ticketing, complaints procedures, community work, merchandise and other issues.

The FSF said Crystal Palace deserved special praise for their willingness to work with supporters.

Lifelong fan Ben Browett, who wrote the club charter over the summer, said he was delighted with the outcome.

He said: "I am very pleased it is being praised so highly. Our previous charter was fairly vague and unattractive so it was in need of a change and the club felt it would be good to show we are on the same page as the FSF.

"The new owners are all Palace fans and want to bridge the gap between club and fans.

"I didn’t have too much on over the summer so I volunteered to write a new charter. It is something that needs to be done and reinforces the point that fans are the most important part of the club."
