A Norwich City fan who has collected “pretty much every away ticket since 1999” has shared his collection as part of an online challenge.

Nick Key posted a video of a folder of tickets as part of the NCFC’s 30 day Twitter challenge.

The club asked fans to share their favourite piece of Norwich City memorabilia from down the years and for Nick it his folder of 480 tickets.

Nick’s dedication did not go unnoticed with more than 6,700 views on his video.

The 39-year-old, who is originally from Norfolk, has had an away season ticket for around 17 years and said his favourite ticket is the first he collected when he watched the Canaries at Manchester United in 1994.

Now living in the Midlands, he said: “I’ve had a home season ticket since ‘99, and away season ticket for about 17 years I think, so I’m a pretty keen fan.

“I’m quite surprised by the reaction as I know there are far more dedicated, longer serving supporters than me, but maybe they don’t keep their tickets.

“My first away game was in 1994 at Manchester United, not a bad place to start, and it’s my favourite ticket.

“I didn’t keep all my tickets to start with and there’s quite a few missing from the earlier years when you could pay at the game but I think I’ve got around 480.”
