In response to questions from a number of supporters, Norwich City can confirm there is no Academy donation option included in the recently-announced season ticket details for 2018-19.
The Club remains totally committed to its Academy and to maintaining Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) Category One status – and will in the next few weeks be announcing new plans to help finance vital development work to the facilities at Colney.
City’s Managing Director Steve Stone commented: “First of all the Club wants to place on record its sincere and heartfelt thanks to the many thousands of our fans who have made generous donations to the Academy in recent seasons. Without your help, we would not be in the position to see exciting players like Jamal Lewis and Todd Cantwell breaking into our first-team, as we have done in recent weeks.
“Our Academy and the development of talented young players coming through the youth ranks into the first-team squad is a critical part of our strategy in the seasons ahead and we are committed to maintaining Category One status as part of our strong focus in this area.
“With this firmly in mind, we will be announcing the next exciting phase of development for the facilities at Colney in the next few weeks and ways in which the Club’s supporters can get involved in the project.”
