A Cashless Stadium

1 June 2019

The JobServe Community Stadium is a cashless venue, helping improve queue times and increase convenience for visitors to the stadium, whether on a matchday, for one of our events or for your business meeting.



Chairman Robbie Cowling explained: "This move will dramatically help the club, because we have so many points of sale, and the cash handling alongside the electronic payment systems is very expensive to run.

"The club will be investing in other point of sale technologies that will help to improve the overall service, especially at times and in areas where service time is of the essence."

If you have payment technology on your phone, e.g. Apple Pay, you can also use these to pay at our till points.

How Does The Privilege Card Work?

I Am An Away Fan, How Will It Work For Me?
There will be one till in the away concourses that accepts cash but, for speed of queueing, we would encourage you to bring a debit or credit card with you for your visit to Colchester United.
