    Aha, not having the Norwich skyline in view was something I did think about, but its got to be done. This would be a complete rebuild, and there are boxes at the top of the bottom tier!

    About 40 miles down the A140. I like old school! But yes, you are probably right.

    Sorry to keep bumping this but here are some fully rendered images if anyone's interested...

    Good job we didn't spend anything in the summer

    Yes, I thought so. Do you know if the club has hinted towards wanting either a single or double tier? In either case, I would imagine you would or could have a tunnel where Carrow Road is, similar to St. James' Park or Old Trafford. That's what I've done in this design. Also attached a view from the South stand to what the double tier could look like.

    My only concern would be is that if you’re going to expand the main stand, then you may as well make use of as much of the space as possible, as you wouldn’t be able to expand that side again - and I think it’s possible to get it to 35k.

    Christ, I never said they were gospel. In fact, I said where they were from. I was going on the assumption that the City stand was between 4500 - 5000. I never thought it would be as low as 3000, however.

    Yeah, to be fair, it would be around 14,000 - including the corners.

    I just dread to think how Bill's quarantine is going if he's getting so worked up about this. The dishwasher will surely be through the neighbour's front window by now

    Aha, it wasn't worth the effort!

    OK Bill, going by your figures, you still wouldn't need a three tiered stand. 23,700 + a two-tiered 10,000 stand gives you 33,700 already. Not counting for corner infills. Can I ask where you got 4000 for the City stand from?

    Not sure about 29,700. 8000 + 6000 + 6000 + 1700 = 21,700. Was under the impression that the City stand holds closer to 5000. That would give you 26,700, a few hundred off 27,200. I think the Barclay and River end hold more but I'm just rounding it up to keep things simple. A new two tiered stand, bottom tier holding 4500 and the top 5500, and two corner infills of 2000 each would give you a capacity of 35,000.

    Mm not quite. Going on limited knowledge these are the rough numbers for each stand, capacity-wise: South stand - 8000 River end & Barclay - 6000 each Aviva Community - 1700 That would mean the new stand would hold about 10,000, which I would think would be the aim. Then having corner infills that hold around 2000 each. Circa 35,000.

    With all the extra free time self-isolation has given me, I've designed a potential City Stand expansion on Sketchup. I calculated the scale and size by a combination of wikipedia numbers, fag packet sums and just my eye - so if it's not perfect then that'll be why. I reckon the capacity of this stadium to be about 35,700. Link to view: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/0c3a8066-7a23-4d4f-9b07-24d4f229814d/Carrow-Road

    Is it really possible

    Declare null & void. Promote Leeds and West Brom and have 5 teams relegated next season, no? Surely it's the fairest way? Carry it on down the lower leagues to make the numbers for each league.
