Capital Canaries

Capital Canaries is the sobriquet for the Norwich City London Area Supporters' Club.

Founded to provide a social and practical support for exiled supporters of Norwich City F.C., the club has become an important part of the football club's network of associations. Notably, the Capital Canaries members vote for a player of the season award, which is presented at the club's main awards dinner, alongside the player of the year and young player of the year award. [ [http://www.canaries.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetails/0,,10355~1018999,00.html "Hucks on a hat-trick"] Norwich City F.C. official website] In recent seasons, the Capital Canaries have sponsored pitch-side advertising at Carrow Road and attracted guest speakers including Delia Smith and various current and former managers and players.
