No other game in world club football has quite as much riding on the outcome as the winner-takes-all clash to decide who will be the 20th club in next season's Premier League.
And Villa boss Steve Bruce is hoping he does so.
"I really, genuinely hope he triggers it". From the training ground, to the stadium, to the support, it has all the makings of a big club.
Most players will go overseas if that's the case, but Terry surely should have anticipated the possibility of Villa getting promoted.
Bruce made a tongue-in-cheek remark that he wouldn't pick Terry against Chelsea next season if the defender wasn't comfortable playing against the club where he won 15 major trophies during a 19-year stint.
Terry has an emotional connection to Chelsea.
The Guardian report that Villa are confident that Terry would sign a new contract if they are promoted.

Spotify to Move Back on XXXTentacion Policy After Outcry
Spotify found themselves in a very divisive position over the past few weeks after implementing their "Anti-Hate Content Policy". Carter threatened to leave, according to the tipsters, but he made a decision to stay put after promises of reform from Ek.
It is extremely moving listening to Bruce and not surprising to hear him say that, in the context of what he has been through over the last few months, winning promotion with Villa would be the most satisfying achievement of his managerial career. When we played them earlier in the season [and lost], we weren't at full strength, and when we played them towards the back end of the season [and won], they weren't at full strength.
Football fans are in disbelief that Terry would even consider signing such a contract.
One thing is for sure, though. Terry's love for Chelsea is unwavering.
While a free-flowing Fulham side featuring teenage prodigy Ryan Sessegnon and prolific Serbia striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, on loan from Newcastle United, are slight favourites, Villa are managed by Steve Bruce who holds the joint record for taking sides into the top-flight from the second tier.
Terry has been one of the standout defenders in the Championship this season, starting 32 league games and forming an effective partnership with Welsh worldwide James Chester at the back. "He is a great leader of men, which we don't produce many of any more". In a quiet way, he is not a ranter and a raver, he is not one who puts heads through doors.
"I won't sit here and say that I'm not going to feel some butterflies on the day but, like everything in life, if you've already experienced something then you know how to handle it better", he told Sky Sports.
