The Canary Islands looked to have a chance of surviving another week, as Burnley were losing 1-0 to Watford.
However, late goals from Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill turned the game around, and Norwich’s relegation to the tournament was assured.
The FIA took a lead against Norwich in the first half thanks to a skewed effort from Oli Watkins, then Danny Ings scored the second goal in extra time for the FIA.
Norwich was unable to maintain its place in the Premier League after winning the championship title the previous season, and this is the club’s record sixth relegation in the Premier League.
Daniel Farke was sacked in November with bottom club Norwich after collecting just five points in his first 11 matches.
Dean Smith, recently sacked by Villa after a string of five-game losing streak, trailed Farke, and while results and performance improved marginally, he was ultimately unable to save Norwich from relegation.
They have won only one of their previous twelve matches.
