Supporter Behaviour...

Cambridge United would like to remind all supporters attending Saturday’s Cambridgeshire Derby that they are ambassadors of their respective Clubs and have an obligation to behave in a manner which aligns with their community and family focused values.

The Club will not tolerate behaviour at games (including within stadia, local establishments, and public transport) which threatens to tarnish the good reputation of the many other passionate, yet respectful U’s supporters.

Anyone attending the fixture is reminded that the use of any pyrotechnics, the throwing of missiles and entering the field of play or any area outside of those reserved for spectators are in clear breach of ground regulations. These actions are also categorised as criminal offences and, therefore, punishable by the law.

In addition, offensive, inappropriate or discrimination chanting of any nature will not be tolerated. Any supporters found guilty of such behaviour or breaching ground regulations will face lengthy or lifetime bans.

Report It...

Safety at the Cledara 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.
