Club message to fans ahead of Blackburn game

26 April 2019

Norwich City would like to request that all supporters remain in their seats for the completion of tomorrow’s match against Blackburn Rovers.

The players and coaching staff would like to complete a lap of appreciation to thank you for your support throughout the 2018/19 season but will only be able to do so if the pitch remains clear.

The safety of players, managers, fans and match officials is of paramount importance and supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a banning order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club could also face a fine.

The Club therefore asks that you remain in the stands at all times.

Ben Kensell, Norwich City’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “It has been a fantastic season and whatever happens tomorrow's game will be a memorable occasion. The players and Daniel would like to walk around the pitch and thank all our fans for their fantastic support after the game, but this will not be possible if there are any pitch incursions. So please stay in your seats and enjoy this special occasion with the Football Club.

“In addition, we had a serious issue at the last home game with an incendiary device being set off inside one of our concourses which led to people requiring medical treatment. We have a zero-tolerance policy on the bringing in or use of these devices in our stadium, so your cooperation on this is much appreciated.”
