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 of supporters parking at Cambridge Dialysis Centre on Ditton Road, which has meant that patients have been unable to attend treatment appointments.

Supporters have also been reported to park on the long cycle lane down Barnwell Road. We kindly ask that these sites are not used for matchday parking.

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

Supporter Accessibility...

Supporters with additional needs should visit the new Accessibility Info point by the Newmarket Road End turnstiles for access to the ground and information on the services we have available for disabled supporters.

Supporters with additional sensory needs can access a free sensory bag courtesy of the Audio For All team at Cambridge United. Both home and away fans can access the bag which includes the following items:

  • Sunflower sticker to make stewards aware of any support needs
  • Ear defenders and in-ear plugs to help with noise control
  • Sensory stress style ball to help ease any anxiety
  • Selection of puzzles and a pen to help keep the mind occupied
  • Pass to enable a queue jump style access through an allocated gate

As these bags are free of charge supporters are politely asked for them to be returned after use. Please click here for more information.

Home and away supporters with a visual impairment, additional sensory needs or the elderly can receive audio-descriptive commentary courtesy of the Audio For All team. Expertly trained volunteer fans of Cambridge United provide a highly professional, neutral and entertaining match description for free of charge.
The service is broadcast to all parts of the stadium. For more information or to book onto the service, please click here.

Cambridge United has teamed up with picturepath, to provide a visual visitor guide for supporters with an aim to help reduce anxiety for SEN Children.

All fans are able to benefit from using picturepath's visual timelines. The app based timelines will support fans, in particular those with additional needs and heightened anxiety such as autism, in preparation for and during their visit to the stadium.

The guides are available within the existing app that can be downloaded for free via your app store (Apple/Android), simply navigate to add routine, and then “visit with picturepath” to access the guides.

Supporter Behaviour...

Ahead of this Saturday’s local derby, supporters are reminded of their responsibility to behave in-line with the Club's Ground Regulations and that pyrotechnics are prohibited at the Abbey Stadium.

Fans are asked to support their team with pride and to represent the Club to the standards which both the Club and its supporters uphold.

Any supporters breaching ground regulations will be subject to discipline in accordance with the Club's Supporter Sanction Policy.

New tougher measures and stronger sanctions relating to anti-social and criminal behaviours have been implemented at football grounds across the country this seasoan.

The FA, Premier League and EFL have introduced a new set of actions which 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.

Safety at the Abbey Stadium remains a key priority on a Matchday and should you witness anti-social or discriminatory behaviour, please speak to a steward, report it via the Club's anonymous reporting textline - 075224 73291 - or through our online Report an Incident page.
