This announcement follows the passing of the first renewal deadline on February 21st with remaining season ticket holders having until a second deadline of March 21st to guarantee their seats again. After that, from the beginning of April, any season tickets remaining will be offered to those currently on the club’s waiting list.
For me, this underlines the support of those fans that are regularly going to games and it shows the level of support from those people is undiminished, despite a disappointing return to the Premier League in 2019-20. This pretty much confirms that Carrow Road will be full again in what increasingly looks like a return to the Championship next season.
It’s great news and being so famously “self-funded” it is obviously very important for the club to be filling the stadium each week, coupled with the income that will bring again. I know that Premier League income and likely player sales mean that the club should be financially stable for sometime going forwards but even so, regular full houses are clearly important to the way that Norwich City go about their business.
Having said that, the lack of success on the pitch this season had been bitterly disappointing for most of us. With all the likely income that should arrive in the summer, the importance of the next stage of recruitment and making that a success cannot be overstated.
Having now stabilised things financially, the only objective for the club should be to become an established Premier League side. Should City be relegated, which looks increasingly likely, then promotion at the first attempt will be required if the financial gains of this Premier League season are not to be wasted.
My message to the board would be “Don’t let us down and don’t take that support for granted” because that has happened too often in the past in this same situation.
