There's plenty of what you might call "artificial" atmosphere created at Selhurst Park, from the Palace Crystals (a dancing troupe responsible for assorted scantily-clad viral videos), to Kayla the American bald eagle who flies around the ground before kick-off.
However, it's the fans who make it.
Palace fans seem to strike the right balance between being loud and aggressive without being unpleasantly intimidating at the ground they call the "Coliseum," something that might well help the team along but doesn't make a ground a particularly nice place to watch football.
Most of the noise comes from the Holmesdale Stand, behind the goal to the left as the TV camera looks, and in particular from the bottom left corner of said stand where the loudest and rowdiest fans seem to congregate.
They call themselves the "Ultras" and manage to express the best of what that word evokes and avoid the worst, most violent elements that the hardcore fans in Italy, Spain and so forth often represent.
It's not quite so much the volume of noise that they create that's impressive, more its relentlessness, with chanting, shouting and jeering continuing more or less non-stop throughout even the most dire of games.
It's a rickety old place, with the bare minimum of mod-cons, stuck in a corner of Southeast London that can be a real pain to get to, but Selhurst Park is one of the last places in the Premier League where the crowd make a real noise.
And, of course, in Glad All Over, they have the best pre-game song in the country.
