Norwich City is marking 25 years since the Club’s memorable 1993 UEFA Cup run with a special charity match against Inter Milan’s ‘Inter Forever’ side at Carrow Road on Sunday May 20th, 2018 – and tickets are now on sale.

City legends from the last 25 years will join players and staff from the 1993-94 squad, to take on Inter Forever, a team of former Inter Milan stars, to celebrate one of the most significant chapters in the Canaries’ history.

Norwich City will be managed by club legend Mike Walker.

The match, kindly supported by club partner Aviva, will raise funds for The Nest, our Community Sports Foundation’s exciting project to build a groundbreaking community sports facility to benefit people from all walks of life in Norwich and Norfolk.

Players for each team will be unveiled in the coming months, but the confirmed members of each squad are as follows:

He captained the 1993 UEFA Cup side and was player of the season twice, in 1988 and 1993.
  • Andy Marshall – A trainee with the club since the aged of 10, Marshall’s breakout moment came in December 1994, following an injury to Bryan Gunn. As first-choice backup, he was thrust into the limelight for the remainder of the Premier League campaign.
