Crystal Palace Football Club was formed on 10 September 1905 by workers at the Crystal Palace, and played its home games on the cup final ground at the The Crystal Palace.

The colours chosen were the claret and blue of Aston Villa, a result of the important role in the club's formation played by Edmund Goodman, an Aston Villa employee who was recommended to the fledgling club by the Villa chairman. Edmund Goodman organised the business side of the club and managed the team from 1907 to 1925.

A former amateur player with Villa, Goodman had lost his leg after taking a kick on the knee which he said himself "took bad ways"
