Crystal Palace will launch their npower Championship season with a Community Day at Selhurst Park.

The day is designed to fill the stadium for the Eagles' first home game of the 2012/13 campaign against Watford on Saturday 18th August.

The club will engage with all sectors of the community including church groups, schools, sports clubs, charities, neighbours and local organisations in an attempt to encourage families along to enjoy a day out supporting their local club.

As well as discounted tickets there will be a host of activities taking place in and around the stadium before the all-important kick-off at 3pm. These include displays by community groups, plenty of food and drink, entertainers and free gifts - the day is sure to have a wonderful summer atmosphere.

If you run a community group and would like to get involved in Crystal Palace's Community Day, please contact the club's Marketing Manager, Sharon Lacey, on 0208 768 6000.
