Cambridge United’s plans to improve the fan experience at the Abbey Stadium have been rejected.

The plans outline a new fan park at the front of the stadium and included a bar, seating area and spaces for food trucks; an area for fans to meet, eat and drink before matches.

The proposed site is on land that is owned by the Supporters Club. Though the club initially approved the idea, the Supporters Club committee have since rejected the proposal.

Cambridge United is disappointed with the outcome having spent significant time, money, and energy on the project.

The club will now have to explore other options as the creation of a fan park, which includes a bar and food offering for supporters in the Newmarket Road End, remains a priority.
