Carrow Road (capacity 27,244)
After outgrowing their previous ground, The Nest, Norwich City moved to Carrow Road in 1935 after the purpose built stadium was built in just 82 days. The stadium has been developed a number of times during its history, most notably after a fire destroyed the old City Stand in 1984.
The newest stand is the South Stand, which was completed in 2004. This is an impressive cantilever, single tier, all seated stand accommodating up to 8,000 fans. All but one of the corners are filled in, the other being overlooked by a hotel. Carrow Road boasts the world’s first revolving LED screen to be installed in a football stadium.
Away fans visiting Carrow Road are located in one side of the South Stand, nearest The Barclays Stand, with a typical allocation of around 2,500.
There is a residents only parking scheme in operation around Carrow Road, which is strictly enforced, so it is advisable to explore other options such as nearby Car Parks, or the Park and Ride Scheme.
