The Venue

Norwich City Football Club was formed in 1902 following a meeting called by Robert Webster and Joseph Cowper-Nutchey, turning professional three years later.

Winners of the League Cup in 1962 and 1985, the Canaries also enjoyed one of the most famous runs in FA Cup history during the Division Three South 1958-59 season – notably beating Manchester United 3-0 despite being in Division Three South.

City participated in European football for the first time in 1993-94 after finishing the inaugural Premier League season in third place, making their mark in style with arguably their finest moment.

Drawn to meet German giants Bayern Munich, they stunned the footballing world by earning a 2-1 victory at the Olympiastadion, becoming the only British side in history to win at the stadium.

Returning to Norfolk for the second leg, a 1-1 draw took the Canaries through to the next round where they were edged out by eventual champions Inter Milan.

The Club was relegated at the end of the 1994-95 season, but returned as champions of Division One in 2003-04 having been beaten in the play-off final two years earlier.

After one season in the Premier League, a period of struggle followed, with Norwich dropping to League One before successive promotions under Paul Lambert led them back to the topflight for the 2011-12 season.

Relegated in 2014, City bounced back at the first attempt as Alex Neil guided them to a famous 2-0 Wembley victory over Middlesbrough in the play-off final, having defeated local rivals Ipswich Town in the semi-finals.

In 2017 the Canaries appointed their first overseas manager, with German Daniel Farke arriving as Head Coach. In 2018-19 he led City to the Championship title and a return to the Premier League.
