    Norwich City FC, Carrow Road

    Carrow Road 2013-14

    Carrow Road is home to Norwich City Football Club.

    Norwich moved to their current stadium in 1935. It's not he biggest of grounds and so tickets can be hard to come by. Today it's an all seater stadium with a capacity of just over 27,000.

    The combination of a city centre stadium, a nearby train station and plenty of decent pubs nearby makes Norwich into a really good day out to watch a decent game of football.

    Away fans are usually given the corner of the Jarrold Stand closest to The Barclay Stand. The views are pretty decent and you can get reasonably close to the pitch.

    Norwich City's nickname is "The Canaries" and they have the chef Delia Smith as one of majority shareholders. She has a restaurant as part of the stadium.

    Norwich City – The Canaries

    by grayfo Updated Jan 3, 2013

    Norwich City was founded in 1902, and was formed following a meeting at the Criterion Cafe in Norwich by a group of friends led by three former Norwich Church of England Young Men's Society players.

    Norwich City currently play their games at Carrow Road which was originally built in 1935. Today the ground has an all-seater capacity of 27,220.

    Delias Cookbook Canaries

    by DUNK67 Updated Sep 24, 2004

    Norwich City are a professional Football team who play in the English Premier League.
    They are nicknamed The Canaries and play in distinctive yellow shirts, green shorts and yellow socks. The Canaries play their Home games at Carrow Road Stadium. The Club is owned by Tv Cook Deliah Smith who is often seen with a City scarf around her neck.

    I don`t really like going to watch Norwich play as it usually involves an eight hour round trip from the Midlands just to watch 90 minutes of football.

    The last time I went to Norwich, a good few years ago know, I bought a Program of Villas match against Inter Milan. This meant I went all the way to Milan and back without getting a program, then travelled to Norwich and managed to get one.

    Equipment: To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
    Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.

    A passive activity, although if you get into the match you will burn up the calories cheering!
    Norwich City F.C are currently top of division 1 and will hopefully join the premiership next season where they will play some of the best teams in the world such as Manchester United and Arsenal. If you are interested in football then this is a nice stadium and if you can get a ticket (difficult) you should enjoy the game!

    Equipment: Warm coat, programme for team news and yellow and green scarf if you are going to cheer for Norwich!
