What does your support look like on iFollow? Cambridge United are pleased to release figures for all games in 2021 so far, with U’s supporters continuing to excel in their backing of Mark Bonner’s side.
Over the course of the season, the U’s iFollow platform has had over 91,000 visits, with over 31,000 passes (match and audio) purchased to date. It truly is remarkable support and Cambridge United would like to re-iterate our thanks to our fanbase for the manner in which they’ve been able to stick by the Club from afar over the last 12 months.
In addition to season ticket holders who receive their iFollow access for free when the U’s play in Sky Bet League Two action at the Abbey, the Club has been averaging 700 match passes per home game to non-season ticket holders since the turn of the New Year.
Match Pass Attendances Home in 2021:
Harrogate - 697
Bradford - 715
Southend - 756
Cheltenham - 736
Scunthorpe - 639
Walsall - 640
The Club receive £6.66 from every additional £10 match pass sold beyond the Club’s season ticket holders, as well as the value of up to the first 500 match passes for the travelling team to the Abbey. So the financial impact made by Cambridge United supporters in tuning into the action each week has been incredibly vital in the absence of fans being able to enjoy the action live in the flesh.
Meanwhile, having started with 640 total match passes for the opening away fixture of the season at Morecambe, the Amber Army are now consistently breaking the 1,000 match pass barrier in support of Mark Bonner’s side on their travels.
Match pass attendances away in 2021:

Barrow – 1,312
Salford – 1,163
Mansfield – 1,176
Port Vale – 1,170
Bolton – 1,121

With an average of 1,140 match passes purchased by U’s fans for away games during 2021, that means the Football Club have been able to generate £6.66 revenue for an average of 640 match passes per away fixture this year…the same total match pass figure for the aforementioned trip to Morecambe in September.
