When Norwich and Ipswich meet it is known as the 'East Anglian derby'. Over the 138 matches played between Norwich and Ipswich since 1902, Ipswich boasts the better record, having won 45% of the matches to Norwich's 37%. The most recent encounter ended in a 1-0 win for Norwich at Portman Road in August 2014. This fixture is sometimes referred to as the "Old Farm derby", a humorous reference to the "Old Firm derby" and the rural nature of East Anglia.
Another commonly employed measure for "Pride of Anglia", and one that encompasses all of the East Anglian teams, is the side finishing as the highest placed East Anglian team in the English football league system. Norwich claimed this position in 2010–11 by finishing second in The Championship, and, by virtue of being the only East Anglian team in the Premier League (the top league of English football), did so from 2011 until the end of the 2013-14 season when they were relegated back the Championship.
Previously in 2007, Colchester United finished in the highest league position of clubs in the region and were awarded a special trophy by Anglia Television to mark the event.
