The Crystal Palace F.C. season 2009–10 was Crystal Palace's 5th consecutive season in The Championship, after a 15th-placed finish in the previous campaign. The season started well before taking a turn for the worse when the club was placed into administration at the end of January 2010, culminating in manager Neil Warnock leaving his job just over a month later and being replaced by Paul Hart, whose tenure saw the club survive relegation on the final day of the season.
