Norwich City FC has partnered with Anglian Chemicals to provide free sanitary products to match-going fans at Carrow Road.
The club has joined the On the Ball initiative - started in 2018 by Celtic fans Orlaith Duffy, Erin Slaven and Mikaela McKinley - which aims to highlight the issue of period poverty.
