Match day Information
Cambridge United is a fan-friendly club and welcomes all fellow supporters who come to enjoy all we have to offer at the Abbey Stadium.
Home and mutual fans can either be seated in the Main Stand, or stand in the Newmarket Road End (NRE) or the Habbin which are both terraced stands.
The Main Stand is the biggest stand at The Abbey Stadium with the best seats in the stadium that look over the length of the pitch. The stand is all seated and contains two Family Blocks, which provide the perfect area for supporters bringing young children to collect autographs from the players and meet club mascot Marvin the Moose.
The Newmarket Road End is at the front of the stadium and is a terraced stand behind the goal, and offers the best atmosphere with the majority of the chanting taking place here. Finally the Habbin Stand is situated along the length of the pitch opposite to the Main Stand which is also terraced.
The turnstiles open an hour before kick-off to allow entry to the ground. Look at your ticket to find out which turnstile to go through in order to enter the ground. All seat numbers will also be on the front of your ticket and stewards will be hand to help you find your seat or help with any other enquiries.
