Four years ago today Norwich City painted Wembley green and yellow in a memorable Championship play-off final win against Middlesbrough.
Cameron Jerome and Nathan Redmond secured a 2-0 victory for Alex Neil's squad to cap a remarkable first six months in charge for the unheralded Scot as City bounced back at the first attempt from Premier League relegation.
A 40,000 strong support descended on the national stadium to watch Norwich in action at Wembley for the first time in 30 years. Then chief executive David McNally claimed at the time the club could have sold 60,000.
Norwich beat arch rivals Ipswich Town on aggregate in the play-off semi-final before proving too strong for the Teessiders.
City will return to the Premier League next season as champions under Daniel Farke. Sheffield United finished second and on Monday either Aston Villa or Derby County will join them as the latest to triumph in a game titled the richest in football.
