Norwich City have been ordered to implement an action plan, fined £10,000 and warned for misconduct in relation to crowd control during a pre-season friendly against King’s Lynn Town on Saturday 8 July 2023. 

The FA alleged that the club repeatedly failed to ensure its spectators and/or supporters (and anyone purporting to be supporters or followers) conduct themselves in an orderly fashion and don’t use words or behaviour that are improper, offensive, abusive, indecent, or insulting with either express or implied reference to disability.

Norwich City subsequently admitted this charge. An independent Regulatory Commission imposed the club’s sanctions following a hearing and its written reasons can be seen below.
