Norwich City are delighted to announce the renewal of the club’s partnership with official destination partner Visit Tampa Bay.
Now entering its fourth year, the partnership has gone from strength to strength since its inception and despite the travel industry being hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, Visit Tampa Bay were keen to commit to another year with the Canaries and display their continued support for the club.
Benefits to come out of the partnership since it began include the first-team’s trip to Florida for a warm weather training camp in November 2018, key relationships forged with the Tampa Bay Rowdies and other sport clubs in the area and the ‘Yellow and Green Dream’ soccer camp for aspiring professional footballers in Tampa.
Head of commercial operations at Norwich City, Sam Jeffery, said: “The tourism industry has been decimated due to COVID-19 and there would have been every opportunity to put our partnership on hold, but thanks to the brilliant support and forward thinking of Santiago Corrada and Patrick Harrison we’re now moving into a fourth year together.
“This partnership is our most pioneering and has grown year-on-year, and in spite of the postponement of this year’s academy tour to Tampa Bay – that would’ve taken place in July – we’ll continue to push the boundaries of what can be achieved through mutually innovative thinking and ambition. Here’s to many more years together.”
President and CEO of Visit Tampa Bay, Santiago C. Corrada, said: “We are proud to continue our strong partnership with Norwich City and its fans. The relationship over the past three years has been excellent.
“We’ve visited each other’s home turf, exchanged players, debuted a training camp and the partnership has been recognized in the UK and USA as industry leading. We couldn’t be more honoured to support the club at this time and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Tampa Bay in the near future”.
Owing to the pandemic, fans are currently unable to watch the Canaries in person at Carrow Road. However, the Visit Tampa Bay half-time challenge will continue at Carrow Park, with all the necessary precautions in place.
