Steve Balmer-Walters, head of retail at Norwich City Football Club, said: 'It has been inspired by the kit that was worn during the first game at Carrow Road on August 31, 1935 against West Ham.

'I think the story has been critical and since we started the year celebrating 80 years at Carrow Road, it made sense to focus on the kit.

Changes to the colour scheme include a slightly darker shade of green to last year and a yellow similar to the 1935 version.

The design team started working on the new shirt in October last year and the process has seen input from all levels of the club.

Mr Walters hoped that fans would be positive about the new design.

He added: 'It is a kit from our history and it has a great story behind it. It was worn for 20 years, which is the longest we have had in our history.'
