Bryan Gunn, the longest-standing member still at Norwich City. He signed for the club in 1986.

The Norwich City F.C. Hall of Fame honours Norwich City F.C. players, coaches, managers, directors and executives who have "made the greatest contribution to the club in its long history both on and off the pitch."[1] During the club's centenary season (2002–03),[2] a Hall of Fame was created. Initially, 100 significant figures from the club's history were honoured; 25 were nominated by the Norwich City Football Club Historical Trust and a further 75 were subsequently elected by supporters.[3] A further 10 members were inducted in 2006, again with some chosen by the Trust and some elected by supporters.[1] In 2012, another eight members were selected, three by the Norwich City Football Club Historical Trust and five elected by supporters.[4]

Six members of the Hall of Fame both played for and managed or coached at the club, most recently Gary Megson and Doug Livermore, respectively.[5] Mike Walker holds the distinction of being the only manager in the list to have had two spells as City manager.

List of members[edit]

Below is a sortable list of the inductees, indicating members who have also won the club's Player of the Season award since its inception in 1967.
