Get On Board For First Game

16 August 2012

Important information regarding shuttle buses and more.

Colchester United get their home fixtures underway on Tuesday night with the visit of Portsmouth.

Pompey have had an interesting summer to say the least, but look set to come into the game with a host of new players with between ten and twelve rumoured to be joining up before their weekend game against Bournemouth.

Fans can beat the rush by buying their tickets in advance by logging onto ColUTickets by clicking HERE or by calling 0845 437 9089 on Friday, Monday or Tuesday.

There are around 150 parking spaces left in the club's official car park, so fans of both clubs are advised to buy their permits in advance to avoid disappointment, or use the shuttle bus service.

Shuttle Bus Service in 2012/13
The Shuttle Bus service will run as normal in 2012/13, and is to be run with new travel partners Network Colchester.

Network Colchester ran the pre-season games very successfully and the club are looking forward to working with them closely in the coming months.

Having frozen the prices for this superb service for three seasons running, the club have this season adjusted the prices to £2 per person - although fans with a Senior Citizens Travelcard will still travel for FREE.

"We are delighted to be working with Network Colchester this coming season," U's General Manager Tim Waddington told the official website.

"They have already proven that they can manage this service with ease and we have had some very positive comments from fans who used the service for the pre-season friendly games.

"We have taken the decision that there will be an increase in price this season, which is not one that we have made lightly, but we still believe that this service represents excellent value for money and is one that is getting better each year.

"With the club not grading matches this season, it will still be cheaper to buy for each game and get the buses compared to last season, so we hope that fans will continue to make use of our shuttle buses."
