U`s manager Paul Lambert says he "cannot wait" to get the new season off and running against Norwich.
Colchester will taken their full allocation of around 1,000 away fans to face City boosted by the return of former Canaries loanee, Kevin Lisbie.
"Norwich at home - we can`t wait to get going; what a game that is to go and play in. They are one of the favourites to go up, given the size of the club they`ve got so we can`t wait to get going," said Lambert on Dream 100 FM.
Most betting agents have Colchester down at 7/1 to grab the much-hyped top six finish under a revamped squad fashioned this summertime by Lambert but they are seen as less likely to contend for the League One divisional title.
