Take Over The Town 2

15 January 2015

Can you help people fall in love with the U's?

It was a big success last season and Take Over The Town is back for 2015, with a romantic twist!

Following the fun and games we had with our campaign in April of 2014, we're pleased to be launching Take Over The Town 2 – 'Fall in love with the U's'!

As per last year, there will be a range of events between February 14th and February 21st, leading up to the U's big home game with promotion chasing Bristol City.

Here's just some of the ideas that are on the list for our Take Over The Town 2 week. If you are able to help with any of the below, or would like to find out more, e-mail us on!

For Schools
We'll be looking for schools to design a football related Valentines Card or love poem, with a Colchester United theme. So get out the sticky back plastic and pritt sticks and send us in your designs!

For Businesses
Want to show our fans how much you love them? We’re hoping businesses across the town will join with us to put on offers and events to show our supporters just how special they are.

Date Night
We're hoping to organise a very special date night dinner, with help from the first team, in the town centre. All proceeds from the event will go to our Charity Partner pot.

Feeling the love?
If you're thinking that this year might be the one that you propose to your partner, and fancy making the gesture in front of our fans, then we can help. Are you brave enough?

Eddie plays Cupid!
If you’d like Eddie to don his Cupid outfit and deliver flowers to your favourite boy or girl, then our fluffy mascot is ready and willing. We'll have details soon of how you can book in Eddie for a very special delivery!

 …and he’s also waiting to be romanced!
Think you can charm Eddie? Our fluffy star will be ready and waiting to hear your best chat-up lines. Stay tuned as to how you can work your magic!

Tell us your Col U love story
We want to know how they fell in love with the U's in years gone by and the lengths you’ve gone to since then to show your love. The best stories will appear on the website, and then we'll have a vote to select the best story.

More details on each of the above will appear on the official website and on social media in the coming days so be prepared to be at your romantic best in the next few weeks!
