A new fans' group has been launched this week for Norwich City fans.
The Norwich City Fans Social Club has been set up by fans - independent of the football club, but with their full support.
The club - put together by an informal group of 16 volunteer fans from a cross section of ages and backgrounds - is open to everyone, with no official membership list.
NCFSC will be organising events such as fans' forums, quiz evenings, raffles and get-togethers with other supporters clubs across the country and beyond. It will also support the Community Sports Foundation with donations from the social club.
The group launched by announcing its first official event - a fans' forum on Wednesday, August 19 (7pm) at Carrow Road with first team players answering fans' questions.
Entrance is just £3 for Adults and £1 for under 16's payable on the night which includes one free raffle ticket for the star prize donated by Norwich City Football Club.
Norwich City have supported the idea of the social club from the start, when life-long fan Diane Blazier contacted the club more in hope than expectation.

'I kept reading how other fan groups like Capital Canaries in the UK were meeting up for social events and realised there was nothing in Norwich and hadn't been since the 70s when we had a Canary Social Club on Thorpe Road,' she said. 'To my surprise the club emailed back straightaway, saying it was a good idea and that they would support it 100pc.
'Norwich City have been very supportive; freely giving advice, meeting rooms, suggesting events and committing to supporting us with player access and prizes.'
The NCFSC will advertise events on the club's official website, on its own website www.ncfsc.co.uk, on twitter @NorwichCityFSC and on Facebook.
