Carrow Road Stadium
Carrow Road is an association football stadium located in Norwich, Norfolk, England. The stadium is located toward the east of the city, near Norwich railway station and the Rover Wensum. It has been the home ground of Norwich City FC since 1935. Norwich City FC originally played at Newmarket Road before moving to The Nest. When The Nest was deemed inadequate for the size of crowds it was attracting, the Carrow Road Ground, named after the road on which it is located, was purpose-built by Norwich City in just 82 days and opened on 31 August 1935. The stadium has been altered and upgraded several times during its history, notably following a fire that destroyed the old City Stand in 1984. The ground’s current capacity is 27,359.

The Nest was the former home ground of Norwich City FC, used for 27 years between 1908 and 1935. The ground was a disused quarry in Rosary Road, Norwich similar in appearance to Charlton Athletic’s The Valley. Following the adoption of the club’s nickname of “The Canaries”, the ground was appropriately named.
