HUNDREDS braved the bitter cold before dawn this morning to bag the most prized ticket in town.
Fanatical Huddersfield Town followers joined a queue that snaked around the Galpharm Stadium to book their seat for the glamour clash against Chelsea next month.
Tickets for the FA Cup third round tie went on sale at 9am - and Town supremo Peter Jackson reckons they will be gone in 24 hours.
Janette O'Grady and Gemma O'Connor, of Elland, were first in the queue at 4.30am.
"We have got our seats picked out," said Janette. "We did not expect to be the first in the queue.
"We were told people would be camping out but when we arrived we were the first ones.
"It has been very cold but we had to make sure we got a ticket. I am sure it is going to be a great day down in London."
And it might have been the freezing weather but some of the Town faithful were even predicting an upset on January 7 against the Premiership champions.
Jane Hirst, of Edgerton, said: "We are going to win! I am confident we will be in the fourth round draw.
"We have beaten them before so why not now? I can't wait for the game - it should be a great day for everyone who is going down.
"When the draw was made I was excited and a bit disappointed because it would have been nice to progress without any problems.
"But it is very exciting to be playing the best team in the country."
Arriving for another hard day's training manager Peter Jackson said he was not surprised people were so enthusiastic about the game.
"I know there will be a shock result in the third round of the cup," he said.
"So why not Huddersfield Town beating Chelsea?
"They are probably the best team in the world at the moment so it will be a day none of the players or the fans will forget."
Ticket office manager Sue Beaumont said: "I can't see the end of the queue at the moment. We are all rushed off our feet.
"It is difficult to say when the tickets will be gone but I suspect it will be sooner rather than later."
