We could soon see the return of supporters
Canaries chief operating officer Ben Kensell has confirmed plans are in place to hold test events at the Carrow Road stadium from the beginning of next September – which would mean supporters are present for the start of the new season.
Although they are liable to change, under the government’s current plans, supporters are officially allowed to return to football stadia from the beginning of October – with City preparing for life with a reduced capacity.
Up to 6000 supporters will be given the opportunity to attend matches with family and friends in bubbles.
The club is also hoping to offer season ticket and membership holders a free-to-air streaming service for games they don’t attend – but that is subject to EFL approval.
The plan is to ensure every season ticket holder can attend a home game every month, but they won’t necessarily be in their allocated seat.
It may not be perfect, but its a positive step towards bringing people back to football.
