TOWN'S squad will sample the Millennium Stadium atmosphere by watching the First Division play-off final on Saturday.
Just 48 hours before they do battle with Mansfield for promotion, manager Peter Jackson and his players will watch the clash between West Ham and Crystal Palace for a Premiership place.
It's an ideal opportunity for the young McAlpine squad to get a taste of what Cardiff is all about.
"We will be leaving the McAlpine at about 1.30pm on Friday to travel down to Wales and then we will watch the First Division final live," said Jackson today.
"If any fans want to come down here to wave the lads off on Friday, that will be brilliant, and then we'll all go to the stadium to watch the First Division final on Saturday and get a sense of the place and soak up the atmosphere.
"I went there last year for the first time to watch Sheffield United play Wolves and I remember thinking what a proud moment it must be to lead out a team in the play-offs, because it's a wonderful occasion, really fantastic
"Little did I know that 12 months on I'd be doing exactly that."
Town will be wearing their normal home kit for the final, with a specially embroidered badge on the blue and white stripes to go with white shorts and black socks.
Mansfield are in amber shirts, blue shorts and blue socks.
Town will wear the suits recently provided by C & J Antich and Sons for the trip and, on Monday, the players will have Yorkshire roses on their lapels.
Referee for the big match is Mark Clattenburg who, this season, had charge of Town's 1-1 home draw with Rochdale and the LDV Vans Trophy defeat at Carlisle in November.
It is still to be decided which dressing rooms the teams will occupy.
Town have sold 17,500 tickets so far.
