Speaking as 2018/19 Season Tickets are launched, chairman Robbie Cowling said: "As always I would like to thank you for your continued support of Colchester United.
"Having made my fortune from the world wide web, I know what a disruptive technology it can be and the last few years we have seen massive changes for football, both good and not so good, because of the internet. It has certainly helped to make ticketing more convenient allowing us to introduce online sales and new products such as the Annual Subscription and the Match Credits.
"One area that has changed radically because of the internet is the media, whereby news can be announced as it happens. However, this has had a negative impact on matchday programmes where most of the articles have already appeared on the club’s website. This has led to a debate on whether matchday programmes are to be continued.
"You may wonder what all this has to do with ticket prices but, because we believe the programme is a fundamental part of attending football matches, we have been looking for a way to preserve the programme whilst still protecting the club from it becoming a financial burden.
"Therefore we have taken the step of adding a small amount to the cost of every match ticket, but including a programme free to everyone who buys a match ticket. Most tickets will increase by an extra £1.00 a match but, for U18s and below, it will be just 50p.
"Future programmes will retain the same number of pages and the quality that you have become accustomed to, but we will make sure that the content includes exclusive articles that are not available anywhere else.
"We will also include discount vouchers in the programmes that will make it possible to recoup much more than just the £1.00 that was paid in the ticket price towards the programme.
"In real terms, the ticket prices have been frozen for another year and for those of you who bought a programme on matchdays it has just made the day £2.00 cheaper. I hope you like what we have done in preserving a matchday tradition such as the programme, and I look forward to seeing many of you next season."
Season Tickets and Annual Subscriptions are due to go on sale on Monday 4th June and, for the second year running, an Online Early Bird discount will be available for fans to take advantage of.
Online Early Bird and seat holds for existing Season Ticket and Annual Subscription holders will run through to Monday 16th July.
