The Olympic spirit looks set to continue at Crystal Palace FC this season with the introduction of their very own Games Makers.
After the success of the London 2012 games and the popularity of the Games Makers, the club have recruited volunteers to improve the match day experience.
The volunteers, who all helped at the London Olympics, are all Palace fans and will be called the CPFC Games Makers.
They will have their own uniform and will be equipped with stadium maps, general information, details of train routes and general club knowledge so they can assist fans.
Phil Alexander, Chief Executive at the club, said: “We were all blown away by the Games Makers contribution at the London 2012 Olympics.
“We decided to see if we could create our very own Games Makers, and the response we have had already for the roles was overwhelming.
“Our aim is to make the match day experience that much better, particularly for new fans who need assistance on how to find their way around the stadium.”
The Games Makers will make their debut this Saturday as Crystal Palace take on Cardiff City at Selhurst Park.
