A nod to the Canaries historic home

Our decision to name the new facility, ‘The Nest’, is a nod to Norwich City’s historic home.

From 1908 to 1935, the Canaries played at a ground on Rosary Road, which went by the same name.

Its first competitive match at the stadium was a 0-0 draw against Portsmouth on September 12, 1908, while the final game was a 2-2 draw against Swansea on May 4, 1935.

The record attendance was 25,037 during a game against Sheffield Wednesday in 1935.

The club moved to Carrow Road on August 31 that year, where it has played ever since.

Jackie Thornton, Head of Development for CSF said: “As soon as we put the name forward, everyone that heard it really liked the idea.

“As well as the historical significance to Norwich City FC, the name lends itself nicely to what we’re trying to create – a safe, nurturing environment where people can come and develop with us.”
