Palace joined the Football League in 1920 and moved to their current stadium Selhurst Park in 1924. Palace’s highest ever league finish to date is third place in the top flight achieved in 1990-91. Palace also have been FA Cup finalists twice, finishing runners-up to Manchester United on both occasions in 1990 and 2016. Crystal Palace were bought by several wealthy supporters in 2010, saving the club from financial disaster. The club were relatively late in establishing a crest. The first crest was featuring the facade of the Crystal Palace. This crest disappeared from the shirt in 1964. The nickname “the Eagles” inspired by the Portugese club Benfica influenced the later crests. Since mid-2010 the club has made use of an American bald eagle, called Kayla, as the club mascot.
