Career Summary

Charismatic manager Ian Holloway parted company with Crystal Palace by mutual consent in October 2013, five months after securing promotion to the Barclays Premier League for the second time in his managerial career when he led Crystal Palace to victory against Watford in the final of the 2012/13 Championship Play-Offs at Wembley Stadium. In the 2013/14 campaign, Holloway guided the Eagles to one win from eight matches before his departure.

Holloway previously appeared in the top flight in 2010/11 as manager of Blackpool Town, after leading them to the Premier League for the first time in their history with another Play-Off final success. Despite winning many plaudits with their entertaining style of play and reaching as high as 8th in the table, the Seasiders narrowly missed out on safety on the final day, as defeat to Manchester United confirmed their return to the Championship.

Blackpool got to the Play-Off final in the following season under Holloway, but they missed out on an immediate return to the Premier League as they lost to West Ham United. Holloway left Bloomfield Road for Crystal Palace in November 2012 and led the Eagles to promotion at the first time of asking.

Previously, Holloway began his managerial career with Bristol Rovers, the club who he started out with as a player at youth level. The charismatic Bristolian also managed Queens Park Rangers for five seasons before taking charge of Plymouth Argyle and Leicester City in the Championship.
