City to celebrate 25th anniversary of cup run with Carrow Road match

Norwich City will be 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 in May – 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, proudly supported by club Community Partner Aviva, will raise funds for The Nest, the 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.

On the Club’s only foray into European competition, Mike Walker’s swashbuckling ’93 City squad defeated Vitesse Arnhem and famously became the only English team to beat Bayern Munich in the Olympic Stadium, before falling to eventual champions Inter Milan in the third round.

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

Inter Forever

The Club invited legendary Italian goalkeeper Francesco Toldo to a recent first team fixture, where he met Bryan Gunn and Adam Drury and discussed the game in May.

Toldo, regarded as one of the Italian goalkeeping greats, looks after the Inter Forever project and was delighted to help the Canaries put on the event.

Bryan Gunn said afterwards:

“It was terrific to meet Francesco and to feel his excitement for the match. He understands the significance of the UEFA Cup run to City fans and will be working hard to get a really iconic Inter Forever team to Carrow Road in May.

“It’ll be great to have our guys from ’93 together again; it was such a memorable time for all of us and it will be a wonderfully nostalgic occasion for the fans as well.”

Adam Drury has worked for the Community Sports Foundation at Carrow Road since his retirement from professional football, and has been involved in the organisation of the Legends match:

“As a player here you’re aware of what that squad achieved and it’s a big honour for some of us more recent players to get involved in the 25th anniversary celebration with the legends of ’93.

“The guys that we’ve spoken to are really excited to be involved and we will be revealing those names to fans very shortly.”

Tom Daniell, Marketing Director at Aviva said: “We are hugely excited by the prospect of celebrating City’s illustrious ’93 European campaign, and the bringing together of legends from both of these great clubs.”
