Diane Blazier: season ticket holder since 1975NORWICH 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. City fan Diane Blazier tells her story, having been a season ticket holder since 1975.
"You go through every single emotion on a match day.
"You're up then you're down, you're crying and then you're laughing. You sit there and kick the ball with them and your feet go in one direction then the other, youre out on the pitch with them. Then when they score, it's like the best feeling ever.
"Over the past five, six, seven years it's really hit home for me what a community club this is. Last Christmas, when I had the idea that we needed a Fans Social Club at the Club, and I emailed David McNally more through hope than expectation, and I got a lovely reply back saying "Come down to the club, tell us what your idea is, talk to us and tell us how you think it'll work, and if we think it can work we'll support you and get behind you."
"To cut a long story short, we've now got 16 volunteers running the Norwich City Fans Social Club which launched in July and we've gone from strength to strength.
"If it hadn't been for the Club and the officials we just wouldn't be where we are now. The Club have been absolutely wonderful and that's what the community feel is about.
"My love affair with Norwich started in the 70s when my dad took me to the football when I was a young teenager, and we used to sit in the City stand on the old wooden benches to watch the games. As each week went by, I got quite attached to the club and to the football.
"It's spanned over many, many years since then, and it's been like a rollercoaster ride, with lots of ups and lots of downs, but we've stayed on for the ride and we're here where we are now."
