Norwich announce partnership with Brazilian club Coritiba

Norwich City have entered a partnership with Brazilian club Coritiba.

The Canaries have now formalised a growing relationship with a partnership spanning areas such as the football, recruitment, performance, data, analysis and communication departments.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Coritiba," said Stuart Webber, City sporting director. "This new and exciting relationship will allow us to further continue our development and reach into new territories.

“When Brexit was on the horizon, we started a project to increase our knowledge in South America, as we felt the rules would open that market somewhat.

“This exciting project has led us to an official partnership with Coritiba, which will be mutually beneficial for both clubs over the coming weeks, months and years.

“Mariela Nisotaki and our scouting team in South America deserve a lot of credit for the work done so far. I am sure both football clubs will feel the benefit of this exciting partnership."

Coritiba president, Juarez Moraes, added on the Canaries' official site: “Having the partnership between Coritiba and Norwich City enriches football and raises our management standards.

“Both teams will reap the rewards of this project, and what's more, other clubs can also benefit from the exchanged experiences.

“We are very excited about the beginning of the work, which will certainly add knowledge and countless experiences globally, reflecting on everyone who is connected to the teams, such as athletes, employees and fans."
