Excited football lovers queued up this morning in anticipation of getting the chance to see Norwich City play Ipswich in a bid to get the promotion spot in the premier league.
They faced a windy and drizzly day as they snaked round the stadium, with those at the very front having arrived at around 6am.
Some came in groups while others found friends among their fellow fans, but the common spirit between everybody was 'bring it on'.
Shaun Chapman, 37 of Peterborough, said: 'It's going to be the biggest Derby ever because of the amount of money riding on it and what's at stake.
'This play off draw adds a little extra spice. It makes it more interesting, although it doesn't need to be a lot more interesting than the play-offs. Beating them four times is better than beating them twice.'
Helen Youngs, 48 also of Peterborough, said: 'I am looking forward to it and I am looking forward to going to Wembley. It's not 'if' but 'when'.
'We will have them. It would have been even better to play them at Wembley'

51-year-old Glenn Stuart, who lived in Norfolk as a child but now lives in Manchester, said: 'I love it. Bring it on. I think it will be great. This is on par with the Milk Cup.
'We are a far superior team but anything can happen in the play-offs.'
20-year-old Devon Briggs, of Poringland, said: 'I am confident we will beat them at home. To watch Norwich play at Wembley will be a dream come true. I want it to be today.'
Saffron Edwards, 19 of Sprowston, added: 'We would be on top of the world.'
Stuart Cooper, 48 of Thetford, said: 'An East Anglian team is going to be in the final. I would like to have seen us go straight up and miss the play offs.'
Friend Peter Murray, 50 of Horsford, said: 'It's more fun in the play-offs. I think it would have been even better to play them for the final.
'To beat your East Anglian rivals in the play-offs would be good. I think we will be too strong for them.'
