Ben Tubby: season ticket holder since 2002NORWICH 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 Facebook, 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. Ben Tubby tells his story, having been a season ticket holder since 2002.
"You feel like you're involved. You've got your seat where you sit every year, and you get to know the people who sit around you. You feel like you are part of the club, and because I've had a season ticket for 12 years, I've seen off several managers and players in the squad. You see people come and go but you're always there.
"I got into Norwich City initially by listening to the games on the radio while driving my tractor. Roy Waller was just so enthusiastic, you couldn't help but get involved. There's always something to talk about and they were always really keen. We'd been going to various games but it had become more and more difficult to get casual seats, so we just figured we'd get season tickets.
"You are part of the club. You meet people at work and football always comes up. Sometimes a conversation will start about Norwich City, and immediately you are mates with them. That's the biggest part of it for me – I like watching the games but I like talking about them too. We're all here in Norfolk and we all support the club, so everybody you talk to has got opinions on it, even if they don't go to games. It's a community.
"The best bit is when you're walking to and from the ground. Everyone's exciting about what they think Norwich can do, and even if you're miserable because we've lost, you’re all there together. It's been amazing in the last couple of years. We're now mixing it with the big boys and you are really proud of them.
"I'll hang on as long as I can. I look at people taking their kids to games – my little boy is only 15 months old, but in a few years' time we’ll be buying him his first shirt and passing on the love for Norwich City."
