Norwich City fans are being given the opportunity to have a greater say in the running of the club after a survey of supporters showed that general satisfaction with the Championship side among season ticket holders was down.
A group of around 20 people will be randomly selected from the club's supporter database, as well as representatives from some fan groups, to have their say on a variety of topics, from matchday experience and atmosphere, to ticketing, catering and retail.
Running during January, the survey this year was completed by 3,151 fans. It is part of the club's drive to reach out to fans following complaints many felt dissatisfied and disconnected.
The survey also revealed that 62 per cent of season ticket holders and 41 per cent of casual fans considering themselves to be a 'very strong supporter' of Norwich City; 59 per cent of supporters said the big screen installed at Carrow Road had improved their experience, quoting replays as the primary reason for this; and the Family FanZone was rated 7.5 out of 10 by supporters who attended with children.
However, pre-match and half-time entertainment were rated poorly, scoring 4.9 and 4.8 out of 10 respectively.
