History of the Norwich City FC
Norwich City Football Club has a long and storied history in the Premier League. Founded in 1902, Norwich City is one of the oldest clubs ever competing in England’s top division. The team was promoted to the Premier League in 1992 after winning Division One that season. They went on to spend nine consecutive seasons competing at this level before being relegated back down after their 2001/02 campaign.
Since then, Norwich has had an up-and-down relationship with English football's top tier; they were promoted for a second time during their 2004/05 Championship season and subsequently spent five more years playing against some of Europe's best teams before facing relegation once again at the end of 2009/10 season. Since then, however, they have been able to bounce back from adversity each time by earning three promotions over four separate campaigns - most recently achieving success under current manager Daniel Farke who won them promotion from Sky Bet Championship ahead of the 2019/20 term, which saw them return once again as members of England’s elite competition for 2020–21 edition.
Overall it has been quite a rollercoaster ride. Still, Norwich City FC fans can be proud that their beloved club continues fighting hard year after year despite many challenges along its journey toward becoming one of the European footballing elite!

The Canaries, Yellows
Norwich has a rich history, and they're nickname originated from that history. In the 16th century when "The Strangers" (immigrants from The Netherlands) came over to England, they brought with them their pet Canary birds. The birds sang whilst the workers were at work, leading to them adopting the bird into the community. The historic story was brought through the club, and they’ve remained "The Canaries" ever since.
