Fixture represents a repeat of first league match held at Carrow Road 80 years ago

THIS summer sees Carrow Road celebrate its 80th anniversary, with the turnstiles first opened for Norwich City's maiden competitive match at their new ground against West Ham United on Saturday, August 31, 1935.

To mark this milestone, the Canaries will welcome their opponents from that game back to Norfolk when the fellow Barclays Premier League side return for a pre-season friendly on Tuesday, July 28 (7:45pm).

City triumphed in the original fixture, winning a seven-goal thriller in the old Second Division 4-3 in front of a crowd of almost 30,000.

Get behind the boys as they prepare for the 2015-16 Barclays Premier League season, with general stadium tickets priced at £10 for adults/senior citizens and £5 for Under-17s.

Tickets will go on general sale in the Jarrold Stand, the Geoffrey Watling City Stand and lower tiers of both end stands from 9am on Monday, June 8.

To purchase your seat, call 0844 826 1902, visit the tickets office at Carrow Road or the official stores at Chapelfield or Castle Mall, or book ONLINE.

Corporate Hospitality for the game is also available, priced from £75. For this, or advertising and sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Club's sales department on 0844 826 1902 (option two) from Monday.

Meal and seat packages will be available in The Darren Huckerby Matchday Club, which includes a three-course pre-match meal and executive seating in the Jarrold Stand.

Further details relating to other pre-season fixtures will be released in due course once games are confirmed.
