Ahead of this weekend's trip to Colchester, our Supporter Liaison Officer has been in touch with our opponents to get all the information you need for your visit...

Bury: Are there any known traffic issues en route to the Stadium? I.e any road closures or roadworks?

Colchester: No known roadworks or rail replacements for this weekend's game.

Bury: Is car parking available for Bury fans? If so, please provide details (where, how much etc).

Colchester: There is parking available at the stadium, priced £6 and available via www.colutickets.com or 01206 755161.

Supporters can also park at the nearby Colchester Park & Ride car park for £3 per car, which is then a short walk back to the stadium via Boxted Road (leaving the car park via the exit next to McDonald's).

                    Contact: Chris Saward
                    E-Mail address: ticketing@colchesterunited.net
                    Cost: £6

Bury: Please give details of pre-match venue for Bury fans (on-site bar, away fan friendly pubs etc)

Colchester: For the first time on Saturday, Colchester United will be launching a Supporters Bar, available to both home and away supporters pre- and post-game.

This is initially a bottle bar and the bar will have six TV's showing the weekend sport.

Next to the fans' bar is Hot Shots Café, serving coffees and other hot drinks, along with a selection of café food.

The nearest pubs are the Dog & Pheasant, which is a ten minute walk away or the Bricklayers Arms, which is more suited for fans arriving by rail – and is then a taxi ride up to the stadium.

Bury: Where is the nearest cash machine to the Stadium?

Colchester: The Club Shop offers a cashback facility, whilst the nearest cash point is at the petrol station on the other side of Junction 28 on the A12 at the Marks & Spencers.

Bury: What is the nearest train station to the Stadium and what is the approximate distance and walking time?

Colchester: The nearest train station is Colchester North, which is the first station in Colchester when arriving either from north of the town or coming out of London.

It is a 30 minute walk to the stadium, so a taxi is advised, particularly if the weather is inclement.

Bury: What food and drink is available in the concourse at the Stadium? (Please attach image if applicable)

Colchester: The usual pre-match food is available for supporters, including burgers, hot dogs, teas, coffees, and a range of alcoholic beverages.

Bury: Is our drum allowed in the Stadium?

Colchester: Yes, the drum will be allowed in.

Bury: What is the process for supporters looking to bring flags into the Stadium?

Colchester: Any flags must have fire certificates to be admitted into the stadium – if they don't have the certificate, they won't be admitted.

Bury: What is the postcode for SatNav users?

Colchester: The postcode for the stadium is CO4 5UP.

Bury: Any additional information you think may be useful for our fans?

Colchester: Visiting fans should note that the matchday programme is included as part of your ticket price for League Two games at Colchester United this season. Once you are through the turnstiles, they will be waiting for you to pick up your copy!
