AWAY DAY GUIDE | CAMBRIDGE UNITED

16 September 2022

Information for Reds supporters making our first trip to the Abbey Stadium in almost thirty years, as we take on Cambridge United on Saturday in Sky Bet League One action, kicking off at 3pm.

Reds fans will be situated in the South Stand at The Abbey, with the entrance being located on Coldhams Common.

Please note that the postage deadline for this fixture has now passed, so any tickets purchased from this point must now be collected from our Box Office at Oakwell or at The Abbey Stadium on the day.

The ticket office at The Abbey Stadium can be found on Newmarket Road, with tickets facing a £2 increase on the day. Duplicates and tickets for collection can also be found here.

The address for the home of the 'U's' is as follows:

The Abbey Stadium 
Newmarket Road 
Cambridge 
CB5 8LN
 
The Abbey Stadium is located two miles north-east of the city centre and is easily accessible by both bus and train.
 
There is no on-site parking available at The Abbey. Cambridge United recommends supporters use the Park and Ride service available which is detailed below.
 
A Citibus C3 bus stops within a few yards of the ground (Ditton Walk stop) on Newmarket road and runs from the Railway Station and through the city centre every ten minutes during the day, and at longer intervals in the evenings. Check the Stagecoach website for more details and a Citi 3 timetable.
 
A Park and Ride system does operate for football supporters attending matches at The Abbey from Newmarket Road Park and Ride. The address for this stop is below:
 
Newmarket Road
Cambridge
CB5 8AA
 
A ticket is priced at £2.50 and applies to one passenger only. If you are travelling with children, a standard £3 Park & Ride ticket is available which allows children under the age of 16 to travel free with one fee-paying adult.
 
Ahead of kick-off, Reds fans can catch any of the regular Park & Ride buses heading into the city centre which all stop at The Abbey. After the game, there will be a dedicated bus waiting in the layby outside the stadium at 4.45 pm to take fans back to the Park & Ride.
 
There are a couple of options within Cambridge if you opt to travel by train. Cambridge Rail station is located in the city centre and is a 25-30 minute walk from the ground.
 
There are regular services to and from Cambridge Railway Station, where taxis are available or the Citibus C3 service runs from the station every ten minutes during the day and at longer intervals in the evenings.
 
The other option rail-wise is Cambridge North station. Less trains stop here, so be sure to check whether your service does, and is a 30-minute walk from The Abbey. 
 
As always, be sure to plan your journey before departing for The Abbey and check the latest travel information. Information within this article is subject to change.
 
We wish all Reds making the trip down to Cambridgeshire a safe journey and we look forward to seeing you in the South Stand at The Abbey on Saturday!
