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.

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:

  • Bryan Gunn – the City stopper made a total of 478 appearances for Norwich City, was an integral part of the teams which finished 5th, 4th and then 3rd in the top flight and also played in the 1989 FA Cup semi-final. He captained the 1993 UEFA Cup side and was player of the season twice, in 1988 and 1993.
  • John Polston – Polston played 263 times for the Canaries and was an important member of the team that finished third in the top flight in the 1992/93 season.  He was the captain in the club’s first ever UEFA Cup tie, in 1993, scoring one of the goals in a 3-0 win over Vitesse Arnhem.
  • Rob Newman – Rob Newman was a hugely respected utility player who made 249 appearances for the Canaries and captained the Norwich City side that played in the San Siro against Inter Milan.
  • Mark Bowen – Mark Bowen famously scored a header in the 2-1 against Bayern Munich at the Olympic Stadium in the 1993 UEFA Cup run. With 399 appearances, he is the ninth most capped Canary of all-time.
  • Darren Huckerby – the two-time player of the season played a pivotal role for the Canaries as they won the Championship title in 2003/04, and was named in the Norwich City Greatest Ever XI following a fan vote in 2008.
  • Adam Drury – the former Club Captain made over 300 appearances in 11 years with Norwich City and won player of the season in 2003. He is one of a very distinguished group of Club Captains to receive silverware on behalf of Norwich City during its 115-year history.
  • Chris Sutton – Sutton was part of the 1993 UEFA Cup run and scored 25 Premier League goals in the 1993/94 season, before becoming the most expensive player in English football when he signed for Blackburn Rovers, with whom he would win the Premier League title the following season. He won the Barry Butler trophy in 1994.
  • Iwan Roberts –  The big Welshman was a hero to the Canary fans for seven years and picked up the Barry Butler trophy in 1999 and 2000. He sits third in Norwich City’s all-time top goal scorers list behind Jonny Gavin and Terry Allcock, having struck 96 times for the Canaries.
  • Grant Holt – A three-time winner of the Barry Butler trophy, Holt led the Canaries to the League One title and a promotion-winning campaign to the Premier League, in successive seasons. He was inducted into the Club’s Hall of Fame in 2012 after making a big impression in the Premier League, including a famous goal against Liverpool at the Kop End.
  • Francesco Toldo – the Italy international was named Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year in 2000 before winning 11 major honours with Inter Milan. He kept three clean sheets in the UEFA European Championship finals of 2000 as Italy finished runners-up.
  • Javier Zanetti – With 143 caps for Argentina, midfielder Zanetti added a Champions League winners’ medal in 2010 to a glittering array of Italian and European honours, in a career spanning more than two decades at the very top of the sport.
  • Nicola Berti – Midfielder Berti was part of the Inter side that went on to win the UEFA Cup that year, his second winners’ medal in that competition. He was also part of the Italy side which finished third in the World Cup on home soil in 1990 and runners-up in 1994.
  • Marco Materazzi  – won the Champions League during his ten seasons with Inter Milan and scored Italy’s goal en route to victory in the 2006 World Cup final. The centre back was also part of Inter’s incredible run of five Serie A titles in a row from 2006 to 2010.
