COLCHESTER United will be offering two sections of unreserved seating in their new Community Stadium for next season.

The U's look certain to be playing in League One next term, but at least there is a new ground to look forward to, and the Essex club are keen to ease the transition from terracing to seating for many of their fans.

To that end, it will be possible for a supporter to buy a seat within these two unreserved areas, and then sit anywhere within the designated block on a game-to-game basis.

That equates to an adult being able to watch the U's from £22 a game next season, with concession tickets costing only £16 per match with a season ticket.

The U's are also keen to promote the Family Enclosure, which will be housed in the East Stand. Children aged 11 or under will be able to watch every home league game next season for less than £100, and under-16s will be able to do the same for just £156.

The North Stand looks set to accommodate the “loudest” U's supporters - those keen to sing and chant their way through a game. It has already been dubbed the “Noisy North.”
