Norwich City F.C.

 

 

All games have been suspended at the English Premier League until April 4, 2020

Norwich City Football Club (also known as The Canaries or City) is an English professional football club based in Norwich, Norfolk, that competes in the Premier League, the top division of English football, after winning the 2018-19 EFL Championship title.

They were first promoted to the top flight in 1972. Norwich have won the League Cup twice, in 1962 and 1985. The club has never won the top flight but finished third in 1993.

The club was founded in 1902. Since 1935, Norwich have played their home games at Carrow Road and have a long-standing and fierce rivalry with East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, with whom they have contested the East Anglian derby 134 times since 1902.

The fans’ song “On the Ball, City” is the oldest football chant in the world, written in 1890 and still sung today.

Rebuild under Farke and Premier League return (2017–present)

On 25 May 2017, the club appointed German coach Daniel Farke as head coach, becoming the first foreign head coach of the club in its 114-year history. Under Farke, the club underwent a rebuilding process that saw the team adopt a fast-paced, possession-focused brand of football reminiscent of Farke’s predecessor Dortmund side. However, Norwich would finish the 2017–18 season in a disappointing 14th place. Despite a slow start, the following season was far more successful and the team would spend most of the season at the top of the table – helped on by top scorer Teemu Pukki. Following a 2–1 win over Blackburn Rovers, the club was promoted back to the Premier League after a 3 year absence as champions of the Championship.
