Beam back vs Chelsea

BIG SCREEN football action will be returning to Carrow Road for the Canaries' bottom v top clash with Chelsea.

Football club bosses have announced that up to 6,000 supporters will be able to watch the game at Stamford Bridge on a big screen from the new Jarrold Stand.

Andy Cullen, Norwich City Football Club's director of sales and marketing, said the December screening would give supporters who have been unable to get tickets for the match a chance to view one of the club's biggest away games of the season.

"We're delighted to be able to provide this service for supporters, but also to families who will find the cost of tickets for Chelsea prohibitive, especially in the week leading up to Christmas," said Mr Cullen.

He cited Norwich's "tremendous travelling support" as another reason for deciding the game should be beamed back.

"There will be some people who can't get tickets, but this is a way of providing people with a chance of watching a game they wouldn't otherwise be able to see live," he said.

"We have permission from the Premier League to show up to five games on a beam back basis, provided they don't clash with one of Sky's live fixtures."

City's big screen date with Chelsea, on Saturday December 18, will not be the first game beamed back to Carrow Road this season.In September, supporters were able to watch Norwich City's 3-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield on the big screen.

Mr Cullen said the club received a very good take up for that game where more than 3,000 turned up to watch.

"That was great, and makes it worth our while," said Mr Cullen. "We don't make much money out of these, but see it as providing a service to supporters."

In April, 6,000 fans created a carnival atmosphere at Carrow Road to watch City's clash with Watford at Vicarage Road — just days after the club's return to the top flight was sealed.

And in May, 1,700 fans crammed into the Gunn Club, Scores, and the Russell Allison Lounge at Carrow Road to witness City win their first piece of silverware in 20 years when they were crowned First Division Champions despite losing 1-0 to Sunderland.

Tickets for the beam back against Chelsea will go on sale from midday today.
