The JobServe Community Stadium is a cashless venue, a move which was made to help improve queue times and increase convenience for visitors to the stadium.


The coach will depart from Unit 1 nightclub at 7:15am for a fare of £38.

Other pick-up points include: Honiton Road park and ride (by Miller and Carter Steakhouse), junction 28 (Cullompton services). Junction 27 (Tiverton), junction 25 (Taunton.) All other pick-ups by prior arrangement.

The easiest way to buy is online, or on your mobile using the clubs ticketing system.

For more information or to book please contact Chris Woolcott on 01392 250250 or John Bishop on 07904036334 or by email at: (after 6pm).

Alternatively, drop into reception, during our Christmas opening hours, at St James Park to book.


To get to The Jobserve Community Stadium from Exeter, the quickest way would be to take the M5, M4 and M25, to get to junction 28 to turn off on the A12 towards Chelmsford. Follow the A12 to junction 28 as well, turn left at the first roundabout. Then turn right into United Way from the second roundabout where you'll arrive at the stadium. 

The postcode of the stadium is CO4 5UP, but you may find that your sat nav system does not acknowledge this postcode if it was bought before 2008. It is recommended to use CO4 5JS, which is the nearby Rapid Electronics factory.


You can take the 8.34am train from Exeter St Davids which will arrive at Colchester at 2.09pm. However, there are three chances at London Paddington, Newbury Park (via the tube) and Ingatesstone to use this service. Colchester's stadium is a 40 minute walk from the train station though so it would be advisable to catch a taxi once you arrrive into the town to get you there in time for kick-off.
