Norwich City is an English football club based in the city of Norwich, Norfolk. They currently feature in the English Championship.

History

Norwich City was formed on June 17, 1902 by a group of friends after a meeting at the Criterion Café in Norwich. They were elected to play in the Southern League in 1905 but went into voluntary liquidation in December 1917 but were reformed in February 1919 and joined the Third Division for the 1920-1921 season but in the following seasons could play only in the lower divisions of the English league pyramid.

Norwich City returned to the Premiership for the 2004-2005 season but went down after just one season back in the English top flight. The club have yoyoed between the top two divisions in recent times, winning the 2018-2019 Championship season under their first-ever non-British manager Daniel Farke to earn promotion to the Premier League. The club was relegated the following season, before returning straight back up under Farke as Championship champions. They have had a yo-yo existence recently.
