Known as the Jobserve Community Stadium for sponsorship reasons, it opened in August 2008, at a cost of £14m, and has a capacity of 10,105.

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.

For more information or to book please contact Chris Woolcott on 01392 250250 or John Bishop on 07904036334 or by email at: john.bishop760@btinternet.com (after 6pm).

BY ROAD

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.

BY RAIL

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. 

PUBS/FOOD

Colchester allows access to the bar and toilets located on the concourse area of one of the stands, before each home game (12.15pm for a 3.00pm kick-off). Drinks can be taken back outside the stadium to enjoy the pre-match entertainment such as live bands which are often playing under the marquee. This bar is available to both home and away supporters. Alcohol available includes; Lager, Bitter, Wine, plus Whisky and Brandy (all at £3.80). 

With the stadium being on the very outskirts of Colchester, then there is little in the choice of pubs.
