Nottingham Forest moved to The City Ground on 3 September 1898. Situated only a few hundred yards from the old Town Ground at the opposite end of Trent Bridge, it was named in celebration of Nottingham’s newly-awarded city status.
The City Ground was chosen as one of the venues to host the European Championships in 1996. In mind of this, the Trent End, a prominent landmark by the River Trent, was rebuilt that year. It holds 7,500 fans and takes the ground’s overall capacity to 30,445.
