COLCHESTER United fans are now able to try to get hold of tickets for the club's first competitive game at their new stadium after technical problems were resolved.

Supporters were left frustrated yesterday when the first day's sale of tickets for Saturday's home match against Huddersfield were put on hold.

The club announced today: “Following a lengthy shift by the ticket office staff on Monday night, all season ticket holder details have now been inputted on to the system and other issues resolved, allowing sales to begin for the weekend game.

Jon Burns, chairman of Colchester United Supporters Association, told the EADT last night as many as 8,000 fans would want tickets.

“It's a lot of tickets for them to sell in four days. It is frustrating for the fans because many want to get their tickets as soon as they can,” he said.

Anyone wanting to get a ticket for the first competitive game at the Weston Homes Community Stadium should call the ticket office on 0871 226 2161.
