Food and Drink…

A refreshed menu is making its debut at the Abbey Stadium this Saturday as all catering outlets receive a freshen up.

Following supporter feedback, the Club has already made a number of changes to its drinks offering including the introduction of £4 Pints from 1:30pm-2pm in all outside bars and the addition of Cider and Coke Zero to all bars.

More additions are coming into place for this weekend’s game, including the introduction of a chicken or vegetable curry and the option to have mash and/or gravy with the pie of your choice.

The Club is also debuting a new pie and pastry supplier as Piglets Pantry will provide a selection of their finest pies, sausage rolls and pastry items across all food outlets.


All the usual favourites such as Gourmet Burgers, Hot Dogs and Nachos will all be available across the Abbey as usual.

As with the majority of fixtures this season, only supporters with a Signature Suite Hospitality ticket can use the Dion Dublin Bar.

All food and drink outlets will open in conjunction with the turnstiles at 1:30pm and supporters should please be reminded that the Abbey Stadium is a cashless venue.

£4 pints before 2pm...

Starting this Saturday, all pints of Amstel, Wild Wave and Ghost Ship are on offer for just £4 from 1:30pm until 2pm. The move comes following feedback from supporters with a number of improvements to the Club's food and drink offering announced.


Get to the ground early and take advantage of these reduced prices from around the Abbey Stadium's various food and drink kiosks behind the Main Stand and Habbin Stand.

Stay Hydrated...

Bring your water bottles and stay hydrated whilst at the game via any of our seven water stations around the Abbey.

Check out the above map so you know where to go to fill up your bottle.


There is no on-site car parking available at the Abbey Stadium and supporters are advised to use alternative modes of transport or the Cambridge Matchday Park & Ride service.

Home and away supporters can take advantage of the Cambridge Park & Ride, with a Matchday return ticket priced at £2.50 from Newmarket Road Park & Ride, CB5 8AA.

The ticket is valid for one passenger only. However, if travelling with children, the normal £3 Park & Ride ticket is also available to purchase, allowing children under the age of 16 to travel free with one fee-paying adult. Click here for more information on the Park & Ride service.

For supporters who have difficult accessing public transport, the Club has partnered with Dial a Ride to offer home-to-stadium transport. For more information, please click here.

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

Alternatively, supporters can cycle or scoot to the game. The Abbey Stadium is home to both bicycle and Voi scooter racks, allowing fans to park their ride safely whilst at the ground. Make the most of the Club's new partnership with Voi, the UK and Europe's leading micromobility operator, by taking advantage of the following discount codes:

CAMUNITED - 1 x 15min free for all New Users 

CAMUNITED_VOI - 3 x 20% off a ride existing users

To redeem the codes, download the Voi app on your Android or iPhone device, open the in-app wallet and click on ‘Redeem a Voucher’ to enter the releveant code. Both codes are only valid in Cambridge and must be redeemed by the end of regular season on 6 May 2023.

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.

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.
