Norwich City Football Team, headquartered in Norwich, Norfolk, is an English professional football club. After winning the EFL Championship in 2020″21, the squad was promoted to the Premier League, the highest flight of English football, for the 2021″22 season. In 1902, the club was created. Norwich City has played their home games at Carrow Road since 1935, and they have a long-standing and bitter rivalry with East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, with whom they have played 134 times in the East Anglian derby since 1902. The supporters’ song “On the Ball, City,” penned in 1890 and being chanted today, is the world’s oldest football cry.

The League Cup has been won by Norwich twice, in 1962 and 1985. The club’s best ever league result was third in the Premier League in 1992″93.

The team wears distinctive yellow and green uniforms and is known as The Canaries due to the area’s long history of bird rearing (said to be introduced around the 16th century by a group of European immigrant weavers in the area known as “The Strangers”).

Norwich City F.C. was created on June 17, 1902, at the Criterion Café in Norwich, and played their first competitive match on September 6, 1902, at Newmarket Road, versus Harwich & Parkeston. They entered the Norfolk & Suffolk League for the 1902″03 season, but were kicked out of the amateur game in 1905 when an FA committee considered them to be a professional outfit. Norwich was elected to the Southern League later that year. They were forced to abandon Newmarket Road in 1908 because to rising crowds and relocated to The Nest, a disused chalk pit. The Citizens were the club’s initial moniker, but by 1907, the more well-known Canaries had supplanted it when the club’s chairman (who was an avid canary breeder) christened his youngsters “The Canaries” and altered their strip to yellow and green. City fell into voluntary insolvency on December 10, 1917, with football banned and spiraling debts due to the First World War.


The club was formally reconstituted on February 15, 1919, with Charles Frederick Watling, the future Lord Mayor of Norwich and father of future club chairman Geoffrey Watling, playing a major role. Norwich entered the Football League’s Third Division for the next season when the Football League founded a third division in May 1920. On August 28, 1920, they played Plymouth Argyle in their debut league match, which finished in a 1″1 tie. After that, the team had a disappointing decade, placing no higher than ninth and no worse than 18th. The club’s fortunes improved in the next decade, with a club-record 10″2 victory over Coventry City and promotion to the Second Division as winners in the 1933″34 season under Tom Parker’s direction.

With numbers growing and the Football Association voicing worries about The Nest’s appropriateness, the club contemplated renovating the venue, but finally chose to relocate to Carrow Road. The home club won 4″3 against West Ham United in the debut match on August 31, 1935, setting a new attendance record of 29,779. The visit of King George VI to Carrow Road on October 29, 1938, was the highlight of the following four seasons. However, at the end of the season, the team was relegated to the Third Division. Due to the Second World War, the league was discontinued the next season and did not restart until the 1946″47 season. City finished 21st this season and the next season, necessitating the club to ask for re-election to the league. Under the management of Norman Low in the early 1950s, the club almost missed out on promotion, but after the return of Tom Parker as manager, Norwich ended bottom of the football league in the 1956″57 season. Norwich reached the FA Cup semi-finals as a Third Division team in 1958″59, overcoming two First Division opponents along the way: Tottenham Hotspur and Matt Busby’s Manchester United.
