When travelling teams come to The Nest for a residential experience, we often provide support to arrange competitive fixtures against local teams.
When this happens, we will send out fixture opportunities via the mailing list for local teams to express their interest, before selecting the most appropriate opposition for the visiting team.
We are working in partnership with the team at Norwich City FC’s Academy, who will provide City Select, Academy and Pre-Academy experiences for selected players from clubs in the Club Partnership Programme.
Female players will receive similar opportunities from our Girls’ football pathway.
Each month a prize draw will take place for all teams in the programme. The prizes available will be:
• Tickets for a Norwich City FC home game
• A signed Norwich City shirt
• A free pitch session at The Nest for training or a fixture
• A team coaching session delivered by a Foundation coach
• A ball collector experience at Carrow Road
• Foundation water bottles for the squad
• Tickets for a Norwich City Women’s home game
• Ground tour of Carrow Road
You’ll be the first to hear about tournaments, fixtures and coach development opportunities at the Foundation.
These include our free coaching workshop FC Live, the Summer Cup and opportunities throughout the year to take on sides from the Foundation’s boys and girls development pathway.
The programme follows a successful trial, whereby a number of teams have enjoyed fixtures against visiting clubs at The Nest in recent months.
If you are a lead coach for a junior grassroots team you can sign up for free here.
We will email you with opportunities that arise, as well as to announce the monthly prize draw winners.
