Norwich City Live

Norwich City Football Club is an associated football club based out of Norwich, Norfolk. They will be playing in the English Premier League for the 2011-2012 season for the first time since they were relegated to the Championship in the 2004-2005 season. A second place finish in the Championship was enough to earn automatic promotion, one they hope to reinforce by maintaining a position against the top teams in English football.

Norwich City Football Club, or the Canaries as they are known, is, like many clubs in England, steeped in a rich history. Formed in 1902, Norwich City F.C. was commissioned as a profession team by the Football Association in 1905. The club spent a good deal of time playing in the second and third division of English football before receiving their first piece of silverware by way of the League Cup win over Rochdale in 1962. The team was promoted to the first division in 1973 following their second division first place finish in 1972.

While the following decades saw Norwich City go to and fro between England's top division and the second division, Norwich City had certainly established itself as a known quantity in the world of English Football. They became the first team to be relegated the same year they won a major cup in 1985 when they won the Milk Cup 1-0 over Sunderland but put were relegated thanks to some shock league performances. Norwich City bounced back the next year, however, putting up good showings for the rest of the First Division's existence as the top division of English football. While City had placed high enough to play in Europe during this period, there was at that time a ban against English teams by UEFA which prevented them from playing.

Norwich City were one of the fancied teams in the inaugural 1992-1993 season of the English Premier League before finishing third behind Aston Villa and champions Manchester United. This finish allowed the club to play in eh UEFA Cup for the first time in its history, losing to Inter Milan in the third round. City was relegated back to the First division in 1995 after a poor 94-95 season. Norwich City was again promoted to the Premier league in 2005 but unfortunately was relegated back down to the Championship the next year.

This season sees Norwich City Football Club back in the English Premier League with high hopes resting on the current squads shoulders. City certainly have proven in the past that they have what it takes to compete here and will not give up their spot again without a fight, will it be enough? Only time will tell. For City fans though the chance to watch Norwich City live in the Premier League will certainly be an interesting ride.
