Norwich players to refund fans after Swansea defeat | inside World Soccer

Norwich City players are to reimburse the admission price for all of the Canary fans who travelled to watch Saturday's 3-0 loss at Swansea City.


A total of 899 fans made the 612 mile round trip to the game at the Liberty Stadium, which happens to be the ground furthest away from Carrow Road in the league this season.

But Chris Hughton's men suffered a 3-0 defeat in South Wales in a disappointing performance, with the club now sitting six points above the relegation zone.

Therefore, Norwich players decided to pay the ticket prices out of their own pockets as a thank you to the Yellow Army for their great support home and away this season.

Club captain Russell Martin commented on the club's website: "Our fans have been brilliant home and away this season and the numbers we get on the road are really impressive when you consider how far they have to travel up and down the country from Norfolk.

"All the lads really felt for the fans at the end of Saturday's game, with most of them facing something like a six-hour drive home. Hopefully this will help them with the cost of travelling to our next away game at Fulham.

"These next few games are obviously vital and the support and the atmosphere at our recent win over Sunderland at Carrow Road made a massive difference.

"So hopefully they'll get right behind us again this Saturday when we play West Brom, at Fulham and in all of our remaining games, to help us finish as high up the table as possible."

Fans who bought the Swansea tickets from the club via credit or debit card will be automatically reimbursed on to their card, while those who purchased from the club via cash or cheque will be sent their refund by cheque.
