Get back in the JobServe Community Stadium with Colchester United Fans At The Game.
We’re all missing being at a football match.
Even when football returns, it’s not going to be the same because for a while yet, U’s supporters won’t be able to raise the roof in getting behind the team.
That return for John McGreal and the squad comes next week with the Play-Off Semi-Final against Exeter City.
We’re delighted to announce that we are giving you a chance to get back in the stadium and 'watch' the match, with the launch of ‘Fans At The Game’.
We’ve teamed up with The Football Company, to give you an opportunity to have your own recyclable, waterproof cut-out displayed proudly in the stands.
You may have seen this in other countries, and if so may know how it works. But in very simple terms, all you need to do is:
- Visit our Col U Fans At The Game website on your mobile device
- Agree to the T&Cs
- Allow your mobile device camera to take a picture
- Make sure you fit in the silhouette
- Approve your picture – boom!
- Make your secure online payment – it costs £25 per cut out
you will have to order your cut-out before 1pm on Monday 15th June to be sure of your place as the U's play for the chance of a trip to Wembley.
Exeter supporters can also have their cut-out at the game. It will be a case of putting your surname and 'Exeter' in the Surname box in the ordering process.
You can still order your cut-out after that time, ready for next season should any games be played behind closed doors, but we can't guarantee that it will be in place for next Thursday evening's match.
After that, your cut-out is produced, delivered here to the JobServe Community Stadium and installed.
Before you know it, you’ll get back in the stadium, and be a fan at the game once more.

We know it’s not the real thing, and we cannot wait until the stadium is packed with supporters, but for now this is a great way to support the U’s. Every supporter really counts!
