Norwich City's first-team squad and staff will subsidise tickets for supporters attending next month's away game at Crystal Palace. 

The Canaries have been provided with an allocation of 2,900 for the trip to Selhurst Park on December 28 and the gesture means adult tickets will be discounted by £10. 

City's squad and staff have decided to cover a portion of the costs as a goodwill gesture and a thank you to those who have followed them up and down the country in the Premier League this season. 

The cost covered by the squad and staff will be in the region of £30,000 and is hoped that City supporters will pack out the away end in the capital to support their team during an important run of fixtures close to Christmas. 

Tickets for game will be priced at £20 for adults, £15 for over 65s and students. Under 11s will be charged £11. 

Coach travel for the game is priced at £32 with a £1 discount for season ticket holders and members. Coaches depart Carrow Road at 10am on the day.

Tickets are available to away membership holders at the end of this month and will go on general sale on Wednesday, December 8.
