Neteller is announced as the new Club shirt sponsor

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish said: “We are thrilled to have NETELLER on board and really excited at the prospect of working with them on the growth of its online payments business. 

"As soon as we met the team they felt like the right partner for us and it was important for the vision of our club to work with an exciting, multi-market consumer brand. Both Crystal Palace and Optimal Payments have experienced tremendous growth over the last few years and I feel confident we can help each other to continue that path.” 

A month later, the relationship would anger many fans when the Neteller Twitter account was the first place to officially announce the new manager of the Club.

The two year contract would be cut short after the first year.



Meanwhile, Jonathan Parr departed for Ipswich Town. The full back had won the Player of the Year award in 2012 but failed to establish himself as Palace stepped up to the Premier League. The Norwegian played 101 times for the Eagles, scoring twice.
