Fans are snapping up thousands of stickers in a bid to fill up their Norwich City sticker books - including those all-important shinies.

And now, as fans start amassing stickers, they are going to have the chance to ditch the doubles and get the ones they need at an official swap-shop.

Taking place on October 23 in the Castle Quarter in Norwich, the swap-shop will give collectors the chance to compare books and exchange stickers.

The special collectors sticker books have been on sale in shops for more than two weeks, available for just £1, and the stickers that are needed by Canaries fans have been widely available since Thursday.

The sticker book is a joint operation between Norwich City and Archant, the publisher of the EDP and Evening News, with the stickers available in local stockists, including the Canaries' official stores, East of England Co-op and One Stop shops.

Once you have 10 or fewer stickers left to collect, bring your album to the EDP and Evening News offices on Rouen Road to purchase the remaining stickers you need.
