GROUND HISTORY adapted from "The Ultimate Directory of English & Scottish Football League Grounds"
 
Nottingham Forest FC moved to the City Ground from the Town Ground in 1898 and by WWI a covered main stand had been built on the south side, covering installed at the west end and on the north side and banking constructed at the east end.
 
The ground remained virtually unaltered until the 1950s when the west end terrace was extended and covered in 1954, a new 2,500 seat stand constructed on the east side and the terracing at the east end enlarged in 1957 giving a nominal capacity of 48,000 with 6,000 seats. During the 1960s the main stand was enlarged, refurbished and re-roofed and, after suffering fire damage in 1968 refurbished again.

 
A new cantilever roofed two tier all seat stand opened on the north side in 1980 and, in 1992, an all seat stand, was built at the east end and in the north east and south east corners. (To conform with planning requirements this stand is partially of two-tier design with the cantilever roof stepping down to a single tier at the south end). In 1994 a two-tier 6,706 seat stand was opened at the west end and the all seat capacity at the start of the 2007/8 season was 30,602. The pitch size was 112 x 78 yards.
