Norwich City: Are the Christmas fixtures good for football?

We visited Norwich City to explore the impact the English football's festive period has on the lives of players and fans, including Grant Holt.

Christmas is a time of excess when it comes to food, drink and football.

But does the festive period – one of English game’s oldest traditions – demand too much of players and fans?

We went to Norwich City – who are {ODDS:418331996:80/1} in the football betting to finish in the Premier League top 10 – where we spoke to first-team stars Onel Hernandez, Sam Byram and Tom Trybull, plus club legend Grant Holt, about the challenges they face off the pitch over the Christmas period.

The documentary also features contributions from Richard and Giles Archer, a Canaries-supporting father and son, who discuss the crucial role football plays in their Christmas routine.

Do players, like the rest of us, scoff their faces with Christmas dinner, even though they’re playing the next day? And how do players and fans find being away from their loved ones over the festive period?

Watch our documentary to find out.
