Barring an improbable Leicester City-esque run, Crystal Palace isn’t going to win the Premier League anytime soon. That is, it won’t win on points. What the London club has achieved is claiming the Premier League crown for the club with the most swagger. Palace achieved this feat after it sneakily and quietly bought the domain for saucefc.com. This article will answer the question to why is Crystal Palace called Sauce FC.
For those not up to date with slang, words like “sauce” and “drip” refer to swagger. I refer you to the almighty wisdom of Urban Dictionary.
Crystal Palace has players full of sauce. Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi even refers to Palace as Sauce FC. After Saturday’s victory against Manchester United, Batshuayi let the people know who took home the three points.

It’s unclear when Palace claimed the domain of saucefc.com. What makes the situation even better is that the club didn’t even make an announcement. For all we know saucefc.com has been the redirect to Palace’s website for years. It is believed the domain was bought following the victory against United.
Batshuayi calls the club Sauce FC, but how does a mid-table team obtain the sauce? This thread of Palace players is all the explanation you need.

After two weeks of Premier League play, Sauce FC is tied for first. Perhaps a Palace title isn’t far away. Is it even possible to lose with so much sauce?
