READ NORWICH VERDICT
It’s great to see that Norwich are building a strong connection with the American club, which they appear to be benefiting from in the form of Richards’ loan spell – as well as the infamous Tampa Bay half-time challenge at Carrow Road. We all love it really!
At over £90, it will take a hardened fan, or hipster, to decide to purchase a shirt, but any money that goes towards supporting either of these excellent clubs is probably money well spent.
Tampa play in the USL Championship in America, which is the second tier of their footballing pyramid – below the MLS.
