Description

Norwich City Football Club is an English professional football club based in Norwich, Norfolk. During the 2012–13 Premier League season, Norwich City finished eleventh, but were relegated back to the Championship at the end of the 2013–14 season, finishing in 18th place with 33 points, ahead of Fulham and Cardiff City.

The club was founded in 1902 and first won promotion to the Football League First Division in 1972. Since then, Norwich have played a total of 23 seasons in the top flight, with a longest continuous spell of nine seasons. Norwich have won the League Cup twice, in 1962 and 1985, and the FA Youth Cup twice, in 1983 and 2013. They were founder members of the Premier League in 1992–93, finishing third in the inaugural season and played in its first three seasons, reaching the UEFA Cup 3rd round. Norwich had most recently returned to the Premier League in 2011 after a six-year absence.

Since 1935, Norwich have played their home games at Carrow Road and have a long-standing and fierce rivalry with East Anglian neighbours Ipswich Town, with whom they have contested the East Anglian derby 138 times. From the most recent results of this rivalry, Norwich are the current holders of the "Pride of Anglia" title. The fans' song "On the Ball, City" is regarded as being one of the oldest football songs in the world.

Stadium or Home

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

Carrow Road, named after 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 27,244, 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 26,876 which occurred in the Premier League match versus Swansea on 15 December 2013, 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 which sells club merchandise, catering facilities and a Holiday Inn hotel.
