Fans asked to paint poppies on rocks ahead of Remembrance Day activity

28 October 2020

Norwich City will mark its annual support for the Royal British Legion at our Sky Bet Championship fixture against Swansea City on Saturday, November 7.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Royal British Legion has continued to provide help, advice and financial support to people in need.

Over 90,000 people turn to them for help every year and the organisation is currently receiving increased requests for support.

They have since launched their ‘11/11 Challenge’ to help share what fundraising activities you can get involved with at home to help raise much-needed funds for Armed Forces personnel and their families. 

To commemorate this year’s activities, we’re asking fans of all ages to paint a poppy on a rock of your choice and lay them in a cordoned-off area just outside the Carrow Road store ahead of our game with Swansea City.  

Our dedicated Remembrance Day fixture will involve wreaths being laid pitchside - one representing Norwich City and one from visitors Swansea City. We shall then observe a minute’s silence that will start and end on the referee’s whistle, during which the Last Post will be played.

Both teams will have poppies on their shirts and will join all other Sky Bet Championship clubs in supporting The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal

Limited edition poppy pin badges are now available to buy from the club ahead of Remembrance Day. The pin badges are available ONLINE and in-store from our Carrow Road store and Norwich City Fan Hub, located on the bottom floor of Jarrold Intersport, with all proceeds going to the Poppy Appeal 2020. 

The shirts from this year’s Remembrance fixtures will also auctioned off to help support the fantastic work the Royal British Legion does by supporting members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families all year round. 

Details of the online auction will follow in due course.
