Fans queued from 5am on Thursday to get tickets for the match, waiting for the ticket office to open.
Lawrence Osborne was the first in the queue at Carrow Road and was getting tickets as a surprise for his children.
The Carrow Road season ticket holder said City face a tough challenge against Arsenal away from home.
“They have been playing quite well lately so you would think they have a chance in beating Arsenal,” he said. “I’d rather be at the game than not if it does happen.”
