Norwich City have confirmed that vuvuzelas will be banned from games at Carrow Road in the interests of the safety and enjoyment of supporters.

In line with a growing number of other clubs Norwich City have decided the plastic horns, which were popular in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, will not be allowed into the stadium.

The instruments contravene existing ground regulations and there is a concern the noise from many of the horns blowing simultaneously could impair supporters' ability to hear safety announcements on the public addess system, as well as the possibility they could be used as weapons and/or thrown on to the pitch.

The club has also received very robust input from supporters on the subject of vuvuzelas since the World Cup started in June, with the vast majority firmly against them being allowed into Carrow Road.
