NCFC Charitable Requests
Pennants and Ground Collections
Norwich City Football Club recognises the importance and hard work of charities and community fund-raising groups around the UK as well as the positive impact the Club can have to help to generate revenues for these causes.
The Club typically receives over 1,000 requests for donations to good causes each year. Whilst unable to fulfil all requests, the Club is committed to delivering assistance where possible and practical and has this charity policy in place to facilitate this process.
Throughout the course of each football season the Club will make available 250 pennants signed by our first team squad to be used by fund-raisers to generate revenues.
Owing to the large number of applications received, the Club cannot accommodate requests from organisations or groups outside of Norfolk and Suffolk. Also due to demand we are also unable to help with prizes of match tickets, signed shirts or balls. Signed shirts are available to purchase from the Canary Store.
However, the Club may make special provisions for exceptional cases and some national campaigns. The Club's Charity Steering Group will also consider any applications for help from armed forces or emergency services groups.
On five occasions during the season the Club will accommodate registered charities in holding ground collections on matchdays at Carrow Road.
Applications for 2016-17 can be made by completing this downloadable form and returning it to the address below or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. All applications are processed in August ahead of the beginning of a new season and charities will be contacted to confirm if they have been successful or not.
At every home match, Norwich City will invite a deserving community-minded individual to be the game’s ‘Community Hero’ and place the match ball onto a special plinth prior to kick off.
Whether the individual works in the emergency services or the armed forces, is a carer or charity champion, a super fan or a regional sporting hero, the initiative celebrates their contribution to the local community. If there is anyone you think deserves special recognition for their community efforts or personal achievements, please contact the Club via email@example.com.
As part of Norwich City’s ongoing commitment to good causes and charity work, the Community Sports Foundation also hosts special Wish Days for children and adults with serious or life-threatening illnesses, disabilities or those that may have suffered a traumatic experience.
Norwich City FC look to support a maximum of five events a season that are connected to the 92-in-92 fundraising challenge. All applications must be made by registered charities and support can only be given within working hours (and will not include Sundays). Occasional match support may be given but this will be at the discretion of Norwich City FC and is not guaranteed.
