Matchday Timetable

16 May 2017

So what happens on a Colchester United matchday at the Weston Homes Community Stadium?

We've got plenty going on each matchday, meaning that it's not just about the ninety minutes of high tempo, exciting football!

For a Saturday 3pm kick-off, here's what a typical matchday involves!

11am Ticket Office opens
Want to beat the queues and buy your tickets in advance? The U's Ticket Office is open from 11am on a matchday, so pop up and see us or call 01206 755161!

1pm to 1.30pm The players arrive
The Colchester United players have to arrive at the stadium by 1.30pm for their pre-match meeting with the manager, so if you're around the Players Entrance in the West Stand at this time, you'll stand a great chance of getting your autographs!

1.30pm Activities get underway and turnstiles open
If you want to get your first glimpse of the pitch and sit in your seat, then turnstiles open at 1.30pm. At this time, you'll also be able to give the various matchday activities a go. There's generally a chance for you to show off your football skills or have a go at another sport!

1.45pm Live music begins
For as many matchdays as we can, we try and have a live band playing outside of the South Stand. These are usually local bands, so come and see them in action and grab yourself something to eat!

2.00pm Tweet from your Seat!
We're asking fans to tweet us at @ColU_Official with a picture of them in their seat. If you do, you might be lucky enough to enjoy an upgrade to watch the game next to the U's substitutes!

2.10pm Players warm up
The players will prepare themselves for action from around 10 past 2. If you want to watch them get ready and give them a cheer, be in your seat by this time.

2.45pm Teams go in
The teams will go in for their final team talk at this time, so it's a great time for you to get settled into your seat as our PA Announcer Peter reads out the day's teams.

3.00pm Kick-off!
And then the fun and games gets started! Can the U's get the goals they need? It's time to find out - but be loud and proud in supporting them!

We hope you have a brilliant time at Colchester United!
