Angry Canaries’ supporters have had their say regarding the prospect of a reduced capacity in a section of Carrow Road due to persistent standing.
Season ticket holders in Block A of the Lower Barclay received letters from the club in recent days, following concerns raised by the Club Safety Advisory Group (SAG) - the body of representatives from the county council and emergency services who have the power to revoke the club’s safety certificate.
In a reccent meeting the club was informed ‘the level of persistent standing at the ground is unacceptable’ and there is a ‘direct threat of a capacity reduction’ unless there is a marked improvement in Saturday’s next home Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday.
That prompted a sharp response from fan groups and individual supporters over the timing of the letter, given Daniel Farke’s squad has failed to win in the last seven in the Championship and the lack of atmosphere at home remains a hot topic.
