Getting a Ticket

 

For information on purchasing a ticket please visit the Cambridge United Website

Spectator Viewing areas

 

There are 19 wheelchair user spaces available to home fans. There are 16 wheelchair user spaces available for away fans. Away fans are seated with their own supporters and there is a choice of elevated and pitchside spaces.

 

Amenity and easy access seating is offered on a match to match basis depending upon availability. There are 70 easy access and amenity seats in the stadium.

 

NB: Under existing minimum standards for accessible stadia, the club should have 81 wheelchair spaces. 75% of these should be elevated positions and the remaining 25% pitchside.

 

LPF's view is that many disabled supporters should be able to access general seating areas and only those with specific needs eg those who require extra legroom, or access via aisle seats or who need step free access etc should be allocated seats in the dedicated areas.

 

Based on the above, the club therefore only meets 43% of the guidance and has a shortfall of 46 wheelchair spaces. They should be working on a plan to rectify this deficit within a reasonable timeframe under the auspices of a full independent Access Audit.

Accessible amenities

 

North /South and Main Stand accessible toilet facilities classed as reasonable size with good selection of left/right transfers. There are 4 accessible toilets in the stadium. Steward assistance available if required. North / Main Stand catering available at rear of concourse. South Stand facilities available at rear of stand. Low level counters at all kiosks.  

Accessible services & information

 

Blind and partially sighted supporters can take advantage of small individual hand-held receivers free to all supporters to listen to audio descriptive commentary of the game. The hand-held receivers are limited in number so Cambridge United strongly recommended that potential users reserve them in advance to avoid disappointment. For more details on the service or to reserve a receiver contact Nick Parker on 07929 589925 or nick.parker56@googlemail.com. The hand-held receivers enable users to listen to a specially-tailored commentary of the game wherever they happen to be within the Cambs Glass Stadium.

Match: Cambridge United Vs Liverpool "11" Pre Season

Lots of local good street free parking with dropped kerbs etc... I think there is also disabled entry at ground.

Covered area at one end of stadium to right of goal with no sightline problems. Close to kiosk for refreshments. Didn't use toilets. Overall very good for non-league football stadia.
