Fans Advised to Arrive Early at Colchester
Fans Advised to Arrive Early at Colchester
Monday, 22nd Jul 2013 19:52

Town fans are advised to get to the Weston Homes Community Stadium in good time for Tuesday’s penultimate friendly against Colchester United in order to avoid queues (KO 7.45pm). More than 1,000 Blues are expected to make the short trip to North Essex.

Tickets will be available on the night via the ticket office windows at the ground but there will be no cash turnstiles.

Travelling fans hoping to park at the ground are strongly advised to arrange it in advance with spaces now very limited, but this can only be done by visiting Colchester's ticket office during the day to purchase a permit.

Supporters should also note that fans parking on the bridge over the A12, along some of the side roads off Axial Way and other locations have received parking tickets at the recent West Ham and Spurs friendlies.

An alternative to parking at the ground is to utilise Colchester’s shuttle bus service.

Get the train , parking is a complete farce and rip off - no wonder Col who only get 3,000 for normal home games !

There is so much space around the ground - build a bigger car park! No-brainer.

Oh well the biggest gate of the season for the smallest club in the football league

I called the Colchester ticket office today and they claimed to have sold about 3,000 tickets for the away section North Stand. They thought they would need to open up the East stand for the non ticket Town supporters turning up tomorrow night

Its just 17 miles to get to Colchester from Ipswich - then u have to piddle about trying to find somewhere to park and use local buses FFS!!

Garv added 23:28 - Jul 22
Any ideas what time they will start selling tickets on the night? Or how much a parking permit might be?

I live about 15 minute walk away and the parking there is a farce it used to be £10 but think it is only £5 now but you cant get out after the game until all the park and ride buses have gone with the car park in my opinion the wrong side of the ground

Praise be the Suffolk giant Ipswich Town come to lowly Colchester, such a privilege for us teeny tiny teams in the lower leagues (Although, as you've pointed we're lucky to be in any league with our parking).

If you did your homework, there is parking at ground for £5, & two mins walk parking in the industrial estate (even cheaper). Also there is a park & ride from the station and several pubs in town which offer a pick up/drop off service. See, not so hard after all was it?

I know we have a lot of catching up to Ipswich to do, as you have free parking galore in Ipswich town centre on a match day, or am I wrong? Isn't it all privately owned car parks & queuing? Maybe it's changed.

We seem to manage when Spurs came with a 10k crowd, I pray to good when the footballing galacticos of Ipswich that traffic isn't bad, at least I hope it isn't as farcical as one of your collective point out (We have our own exit onto a major A road by the way, you'll wait 10 mins tops - no town centre diversions).
