A range of special activities are planned for this evening when Norwich City host West Ham United in a pre-season friendly.
The Canaries, who are celebrating 80 years at Carrow Road, will warm up in unique T-shirts before donning the pitch in a one-off kit. A souvenir matchday programme, kids' face painting and on-pitch interviews with City legends are just some of the other things that have been arranged to mark the occasion.
Norwich officials are also encouraging fans to partake in a 60-second applause upon the arrival of the game's 10th minute. It will commemorate the time when Doug Lochhead scored the stadium's first goal against the Hammers in 1935.
The fixture – being screened live by Mustard TV in association with Pleasurewood Hills – is Alex Neil's troops' first in Norfolk this summer as the yellows continue their preparations for an August 8 Premier League return against Crystal Palace.
