Description:
Carrow Road is a football stadium in Norwich, England, and is the home of Norwich City Football Club. The stadium is located toward the easterly end of the city, not far from Norwich railway station and the River Wensum.

Carrow Road, named for the road on which it is located, was purpose-built by Norwich City in 1935; construction took just 82 days. Previously, the club played at Newmarket Road and the appropriately-named The Nest (Norwich City's nickname is "The Canaries").

The stadium has been extensively worked on several times during its history, notably following a devastating fire that destroyed the old City (now "Geoffrey Watling City") Stand in 1984. Having once accommodated standing supporters, since 1992 the ground has been all-seater. The ground's modern capacity is 27,033, the most recent works being the addition of approximately 1,000 new seats in the summer of 2010. The stadium's all-seater record attendance is 26,532 which occurred in the League match versus Ipswich Town on 28 November 2010, but in the days of standing terraces, it saw crowds as large as 43,984 when they played Leicester City in an FA Cup match in 1963. The Carrow Road site also includes a club superstore, catering facilities and a Holiday Inn hotel.
