Chennaiyin FC and Championship side Norwich City have announced a partnership for mutual development. The ISL club has signed a three-year MOU (Memorandum of Understanding), overseen by Chennaiyin FC vice-president Ekansh Gupta and Norwich City commercial director, Sam Jeffery, the partnership will mainly focus on fostering mutual growth, innovation, and collaboration in football.
