THE NRL'S best players will descend on Ipswich on Monday when the NRL All Stars and Indigenous All Stars sides join for a massive fan day.

Superstars Johnathan Thurston, Cameron Smith, Greg Inglis and Benji Marshall will be among the players who will be at Ipswich's Harvey Norman store as part of the build-up to the All Stars clash at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday, February 9.

Daniel Heydon, manager of the Ipswich Harvey Norman store, said he was thrilled to have secured the teams who will conduct an "exclusive All Stars autograph event" in the Ipswich City Square from 4pm.

"Ipswich is a footy crazy town and a lot of people here love the NRL, so that was a contributing factor towards us getting the teams to visit," he said,

"This is a growing city and Harvey Norman wants to show that we can bring world class events to Ipswich.

"We are expecting a lot of people to turn out for this. We are advising that people turn up from 3pm."

There will be four tickets to the All Stars clash up for grabs on Monday along with the opportunity to win a signed jersey by the teams by purchasing over $100 in store for the week leading up to the game. There will also be face painting, a colouring competition and activities involving junior league activities.

Mr Heydon said that any fans that don't bring anything along to sign will be provided with blank NRL autograph cards for the teams to sign.
