Colchester United have asked us to make visiting supporters aware of the following information ahead of Saturday's game.
Please note that, as of summer 2019, the JobServe Community Stadium is a cashless venue.
Details of how it works can be found here
Whilst there are cash opportunities at the Ticket Office and in the away concourses, there will be some areas of the stadium that away fans visit that will be card only.
Supporters are reminded that the shuttle bus service from the train station came to a close in the summer of 2018.
Supporters coming by train are therefore recommended to catch a taxi from the train station, to catch the number 65 from the stops just outside of the station or to walk to the stadium (around 30 minutes walk).
Parking is available to book at the stadium car park for £6 per vehicle. This can be booked online at colutickets.com or by calling 01206 755161.
Allocated disabled parking is available at the same price but is in high demand, so advance booking on the above number is recommended.
However, all parking at the stadium is within short walking distance of the away end.
Alternatively, there is parking available at the nearby Colchester Park & Ride car park at £3 per car. If parking here, please leave the car park via the exit next to McDonald’s and walk back along Boxted Road to reach the stadium.
Food – such as sandwiches and snacks – and drink including alcohol is available at the Hot Shots café adjacent to main reception.
Colchester now also have a Supporters Bar and Fanzone open next to main reception, which allows fans of both sides to mingle.
Both Hotshots and the Supporters Bar are cashless areas.
Please note that the match programme is included in your ticket purchase, so please collect your copy when you go through the turnstiles on matchday.
