NORWICH City will be visually celebrating our brilliant fans next season, and this is your chance to be a part of it.
With the Club recently releasing season tickets for next season, we are asking you, our fans, for your stories. We want to know what it means to you to be a Norwich City fan, how it feels when you’re at Carrow Road or following the team away, and any memorable tale you’ve picked up along your journey as a Canary.
By sharing your story, you’ll have the chance to feature on special banners that we’ll be placing around Carrow Road from the start of next season to celebrate the wonderful support you give us.
To have the chance to feature, all you need to do is share your story or favourite memory using #YourStory
on either Twitter
, or by emailing it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing a number of stories here on canaries.co.uk. To kick us off, here we share the story of Sean Morgan, who has been a season ticket holder since 2002.
"I’ve been an expat – I’ve been back for a lot of this season so I’ve seen most of the games, but I go back out to Asia this month. I see as many matches as I can and often I’ve travelled back several times just to see a game, and then I return again.
"I need that bit of escapism for 90 minutes. I’m in the Snakepit because it’s the noisiest place - a lot of that area has got pretty successful people in it, but for 90 minutes my whole outlook is different. I allow myself to get caught up in it. As soon as I go out of the ground again, I’m a different person. It’s just a relief to be completely involved in something like a football match, and it’s a relief for a lot of people. When I get in that area for the 90 minutes – I never leave before the game has ended – it’s escapism.
"My mum and dad were Norwich fans. They used to go to the games together; my mother’s favourite player was Bill Punton.
"I’ve got an elder brother and younger brother, and we’re all Norwich City supporters, as are our children. It’s a family thing. There are no divided loyalties in Norfolk because you have the one club in a big area. It’s family-run and you feel that everyone is part of the team.
"That’s nice and everybody needs that. You’ve also got a team that wants to win for the badge. With a lot of clubs, do their players really relate to the people and the area like the Norwich players do? You feel they’re playing for the Club that little bit more."
