Norwich City legend and now community ambassador Jeremy Goss said: “I've probably covered every square yard of the Carrow Road pitch and I know the emotions it brings and the feelings it gave me.
“Now our supporters can get an idea of what it feels like on the pitch by going to canarysquares.co.uk and be able to see a vision of the pitch, which is so unique when you compare it to a fan's normal view of Carrow Road.
“I have been given my own Canary Square to celebrate the goal I scored against Bayern Munich at Carrow Road, along with some of my team-mates and former players who have represented this club also have their own personnel square. But Canary Squares is all about a new and exciting idea for fans to show their support for Norwich City and with each square sold, valuable funds will be generated for our club.”
Graham Donaldson, director of Stadium Squares said: “This is a unique concept and Norwich City Football Club are the first club in the world to offer such a initiative.
“Through canarysquares.co.uk fans of this great Club can now have their association with the pitch like many of the former players have had in the past. It's a fun way for fans to stake a claim for their own square which means something to them.”
