Green Football Weekend...
Cambridge United is taking part in Green Football Weekend - the world’s biggest football campaign to tackle climate change.
Supporters at the game this Saturday can visit the Junior U's Kids' Zone to take part in the Layer Up challenge - an activity where you try to put as many layers of clothing on as possible within 30 seconds - to score goals for the U's.
We encourage all our supporters to consider how they can have a green impact whilst either on their way to or at the game, such as using public transport or cycling to the Stadium, or buying one of our many veggie meal options on offer at the Abbey.
There will also be a collection point for any unwanted cans of food that will be donated to the local food bank. A great way to make sure that food doesn’t end up in landfill whilst helping local families in the process.
D&A Recruitment Stand...
Our partners, D&A Recruitment are holding a Recruitment Drop-in at the Newmarket Road End Car Park from 1pm. U's fans can stop by and benefit from being able to get career advice from their experienced team, without having to go out of their way during the busy week.

Following supporter feedback, the Club has made a number of changes to its food and drinks offering, whilst all the usual favourites such as Gourmet Burgers, Hot Dogs and Nachos will still be available.
As with the majority of fixtures this season, only supporters with a Signature Suite Hospitality ticket can use the Dion Dublin Bar before the game.
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 and after the game...
In addition to the 1:30pm-2pm £4 pints promotion that has been running for the past few months, supporters can now take advantage of £4 pints after the game from 5pm-6pm.
The Dion Dublin Bar is open to all supporters after the game, whilst the Abbey Eatery is open as soon as the final whistle blows.
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.
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:

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.
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.
Cambridge United prides itself on being an inclusive football club and providing the best customer service for its disabled supporters. The following services are available to both home and away fans.
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.
For more information on our provisions for disabled supporters, please click here.
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.
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.
