There is no on-site car parking available at the Abbey Stadium and supporters are advised that the Cambridge Matchday Park & Ride service is not be in operation for midweek games.

If driving to the ground, supporters are reminded not to park on the drives or grass verges of local residents. This reminder comes following reports in recent weeks of supporters parking at Cambridge Dialysis Centre on Ditton Road, which has meant that patients have been unable to attend treatment appointments. We kindly ask that this site is not used for matchday parking.

Please be considerate if parking on local streets and always follow local guidance and parking laws.

If you require disabled parking, please call the Club on 01223 566500.

Supporter Behaviour...

Cambridge United would like to remind its supporters of new tougher measures and stronger sanctions relating to anti-social and criminal behaviours at football grounds across the country.

The FA, Premier League and EFL have introduced a new set of actions, which will be implemented across all English football leagues this season and are backed by the Football Supporters’ Association.

The new measures target activity such as entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyrotechnics and throwing objects - as well as drug use and discriminatory behaviour.

These acts are dangerous, illegal and have severe consequences. They have no place in football, or anywhere. Click here for more information.
