Norwich delaying plans to introduce new club badge

Norwich City are delaying plans to introduce a new club badge.

The Pink 'Un reports Norwich have been working on a new club crest but it's understood that the new design is set to be more of a subtle modernisation than a radical redesign.

As reported in May, the Canaries had included questions relating to the traditional club crest – which was worn for the first time in 1972 - in a supporter survey.

The PA reported on Friday that plans to launch the new crest during the past fortnight had been pushed back due to the club's disappointing start to the Premier League season and that the new design was set to feature on shirts from the 2022-23 season.

Having dismissed Daniel Farke following a 2-1 win at Brentford two weeks ago, the international break that followed has been dominated by the pursuit of a new head coach, with Dean Smith appointed on Monday morning.

Perhaps understandably, that could have been seen as an inappropriate time to announce a potentially contentious issue with more pressing issues taking priority. It is believed the crest is planned to feature from next season though.
