The Carrow Road football stadium
The stadium was constructed in just 82 days during the summer of 1935 and opened on 31 August 1935 with a league match between Norwich and West Ham. Initially the stadium comprised on covered seating stand and open terraces on earth banking on the other three sides and the ground could hold about 38,000 spectators. The highest attendance was recorded in 1963, when 43,984 people saw an FA Cup match between Norwich and Leicester City. Although two of the four stands were rebuilt in the elary 1980s, the overall capacity of the stadium was reduced to hold about 28,000, due to safety measures. Ten years later, the stadium was converted into an all-seater, involving the custruction of a new stand called The Barclay, and in 2003, the South Stand was replaced by a new stand called the Jarrold Stand, which was further extended in 2005 by linking it to the Peterborough Stand. The Carrow Road Stadium is the home of the Norwich City FC, also known as the Canaries.
