The Carrow Road all-seater record will be under threat again this season as Norwich City confirmed today that home areas are sold out for the game against Crystal Palace on the opening day of the Premier League campaign.

The current all-seater record is 27,005, who packed the ground for the 2-0 home win over derby rivals Ipswich Town on March 1.

Tickets for the Palace game, on August 8, went on sale on Monday morning and 24 hours later all non-corporate areas had been sold.

Palace have also taken their full allocation of 2,600 tickets.
