18 July 2013|Tottenham Hotspur
We've been advised by Colchester United that parking at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is sold out for Friday's pre-season friendly - ticket, travel and alternative parking details from the Us are below.
Kick-off is 7pm.
TICKET LATEST FROM COLCHESTER...
Colchester have advised that there are only a handful of tickets remaining for Friday night's friendly and these are expected to be sold by Friday morning. There will be no sales on the night.
All pre-ordered tickets are to be collected from the collections marque next to the Ticket Office.
Here are travel/parking details for fans:
Colchester United’s Weston Homes Community Stadium lies immediately adjacent to the A12 that runs through East Anglia, making it easily accessible for fans attending Friday’s game.
The stadium is on Junction 28, to the north of the town and is the junction after the Stanway/Colchester turn off, heading towards Ipswich.
Fans should note that all stadium parking at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is sold out for Friday’s friendly game, and there will be no admission without a parking permit. Should you have a permit for Friday’s match, please display clearly as you approach the stadium car park for the stewards to see.
Please note that Axial Way, which is the road running away from the stadium, is an urban clearway, so any cars parked on this road are liable to receive a parking ticket from the local authorities.
However, local businesses along Axial Way offer some football parking on matchdays.
Fans can also park at Colchester Train Station (postcode CO1 1XD) and then make use of the matchday shuttle bus service from nearby Bruff Close (details below).
Shuttle Bus Service
The U’s run a shuttle bus service for each home fixture and this will be running in full on Friday.
Due to the kick-off time, the buses will start running from 5.15pm from Bruff Close, which is behind the Big Yellow Storage Company building as you leave Colchester train station. Trains from Liverpool Street and Stratford (and stops on that line) arrive into Colchester North station.
These buses run on a regular loop right the way through to kick off and return after the game. Travel on the shuttle bus costs £2 for a return ticket and take around 10 minutes to get to the stadium.
