Norwich City’s matchday programme OTBC has been awarded the best programme in the Championship for the 2020/21 season.
The Merit Award from Premier Progs, a website devoted to news and reviews of matchday programmes, described the programme as a ‘classy issue, worthy of praise’ after placing just above other strong editions from the likes of Preston North End, Brentford and Coventry City.
It is the second consecutive season that OTBC has been awarded the best programme in its division after collecting the Gold Award for the 2019/20 Premier League programme of the season.
Speaking about this season’s edition James Richards, Premier Progs editor, said: “One of the many impressive aspects of Norwich’s programme is the coverage given to the visiting team, with in-depth analysis running to 11 pages. The programme takes a similarly comprehensive approach to covering many different aspects of Norwich themselves. As well as a page on the Canaries Trust and two on the club’s Community Sports Foundation, there are three pages on Norwich’s women’s team, including match updates and league tables, while coverage of the club’s academy teams runs to seven pages, with detailed reports and stats.
“All in all, another classy issues from Norwich. Given the number of clubs that chose to produce a more limited programme for their behind closed doors games, as well as a few that opted not to publish at all, Norwich’s commitment to issuing their usual full-size programme is worthy of praise.”
