Armidale has been painted blue and gold in anticipation of the Narwan Eels hosting the Group 19 senior rugby league grand final.
The town has thrown their support behind the local league venture with businesses and residents displaying an array of memorabilia and decorations.
It is the second time Narwan has made the big dance since their re-entry into the Group 19 competition in 2017, the first being in their return year against the Macintyre Warriors.
Narwan clinched the men's minor premiership at the end of the regular season and hosted the Inverell Hawks in the major semi-final on August 14.
They managed a 40-14 triumph over the Hawks which booked them the first spot in the grand final and hosting rights.
After the major semi-final win, stand-in coach Peter Moran said "it means a lot to the club" and they will be channeling the 2017 loss heading into the 2022 decider.
They will face the Moree Boomerangs at Bellevue Oval on Sunday afternoon.
The league tag grand final will be the first game of the day at 12.30pm with the undefeated Tingha Tigers up against the Warialda Wombats, who knocked off defending champions, the Armidale Rams, in the preliminary final last Sunday to qualify.
