Norwich City Football Club (also known as The Canaries or The Yellows) is an English professional football club based in Norwich, Norfolk. As of the 2021-22 season, the team compete in the Premier League, the top tier of English football, after winning the 2020–21 EFL Championship title. The club was founded in 1902. Since 1935, Norwich have played their home games at Carrow Road and have a long-standing and fierce rivalry with East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, with whom they have contested the East Anglian derby 134 times since 1902. The fans' song "On the Ball, City" is the oldest football chant in the world, written in 1890 and still sung today.
Norwich have won the League Cup twice, in 1962 and 1985. The club's highest ever league finish came in 1992–93 when they finished third in the Premier League.
The club participates in characteristic yellow and green kits and are nicknamed The Canaries after the history of breeding the birds in the area (said to be introduced around the 16th century by a group of European immigrant weavers in the area known as "The Strangers").
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.
