This site is not an official website for the track shown here and is neither approved or endorsed by the stadium. I am indebted to Richard English for helping to construct this page. 

The Norfolk county city of Norwich has had at least 4 greyhound tracks in the past, and the City ground was on Sprowston Road and situated at 1° 18' E 52° 39' N. The Norwich City Stadium was a very small, tight track of just 322 yards, with short races run over 400 yards, standard races over 555 yards and distance races over 715 yards. It raced under official rules and first opened on 25th July 1939.

I am grateful to Jon Seddon for the following link to a map showing the whereabouts of the old track

This section gives a comprehensive picture of the badges produced by the track throughout the ages, but only provides the briefest of glimpses of its history. For those wishing to undertake further research we can recommend a visit to where further reading can be undertaken.
