Norwich City are delighted to announce the continuation of its partnership with Visit Tampa Bay, as the Florida-based tourism body retains its status as the Club’s Official Destination Partner.
As a part of the renewed deal, which again includes a mix of advertising, activation and events, Norwich City’s first-team squad and a select touring party will travel to Tampa Bay during the November international break (November 12-17) for a week-long warm weather training camp, in a pioneering commercial deal for the Club.
Visit Tampa Bay President and CEO Santiago C Corrada said: “We are thrilled to be continuing our successful partnership with Norwich City and excited to be taking it to the next level with the team coming over to work and experience our beautiful destination.”
“The UK is our largest overseas market and working with Norwich City in highlighting everything we have to offer has proven very successful. With increased airlift recently announced from the UK, it’s now even easier for Canaries to come over where we welcome them with open arms.”
Discussing the tour, Norwich City Sporting Director Stuart Webber said: “This is a great opportunity for Daniel Farke to work with the players in a great climate with excellent facilities, when back at home we wouldn’t be able to do this in November.
“We’re really fortunate to be coming over and thankful to the guys in Tampa for helping us make this happen.
“I’m sure we’ll have a great week and go back with some tangible benefits that will help us during the football season.
“It’s also a chance to tell the guys in Florida about Norwich City. We’ll look forward to working with the Tampa Bay Rowdies when we’re there, as well as the local community and hopefully spread the word about Norwich City to the people out there.”
Sam Jeffery, Head of Partnership Activation, said: “Tampa Bay is an incredible place full of welcoming people, brilliant attractions and top class sports teams.
“Our relationship with Visit Tampa Bay has gone from strength to strength over the last season and we’re extremely grateful for their continued support.
“Working with the team over in Tampa Bay to bring our partnership and this winter weather training camp to life has been an enormous pleasure.”
On the back of the successful first year of partnership, the Tampa Time half-time challenge will return again on match days at Carrow Road, with the overall champion across the season winning a fantastic trip for four to Tampa Bay.
Further information on how to enter the half-time challenge will be announced in due course.
And to celebrate the renewal of the partnership, courtesy of Visit Tampa Bay, two lucky fans will be given the chance to be added to the Norwich City touring party heading to Florida in November - and details of this Ultimate Fan Experience competition will be released shortly.
