With a capacity of just over 9,500, the Cambs Glass Stadium was one of the most impressive non league grounds before their promotion back to the football league in 2014. The Main stand is all seated and runs along side the pitch. Opposite is a terrace of similar size. Behind the goal at the South end is a seated stand where away fans are usually seated. At the North end is a small terrace that only stretches around two thirds the length of the touchline.
For most games, away fans will be accommodated in the all-seater South Stand, which was built on the site of the old South Terrace during the 2001-2002 season. To get there from the Greyhound pub, simply follow the path across Coldham's Common and use the 'South Stand' turnstiles. Alternatively, if you are approaching the ground from the front along Newmarket Road, take the footpath just to the town side of the ground, along the back of the Habbin Stand to the 'South Stand' turnstiles.
For selected games away fans may be accommodated in the southern end of the Habbin Terrace. The Habbin South is adjacent to the South Stand and the directions are the same as those above, but use the 'Habbin South' turnstiles instead.
Cambs Glass Stadium seating plan:
A selection of food and drinks is available at the tea bars inside the ground, including our award-winning bacon rolls. Next to the ground, the Supporters Club (owned and operated separately from the Football Club) is usually open to all supporters and serves a variety of hot and cold food and reasonably priced drinks. Entry to non-members is £1.
'Mr Chippy' on Newmarket Road is a few minutes walk in the direction of the city centre (turning left from the front of the ground). Ten minutes walk in the other direction is a McDonalds.
Parking for cars is limited to side street parking only. For disabled parking, contact the Club on 01223 566500 or by e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org

Get directions to the Cambs Glass Stadium from your house by entering your post code or location below:
There are regular services to and from Cambridge Railway Station, where taxis are available or the Citibus C3 service runs from the station every ten minutes during the day and at longer intervals in the evenings. Check the Stagecoach website for more details and a Citi 3 timetable.
To walk from the railway station to the ground could take 25-30 minutes. Walk away from the station along Station Road and take the first right, (Tenison Road). Take the first right again, (Devonshire Road), follow this round to the left, up to the next junction. Turn right - again - onto Mill Road. Walk over the railway bridge, then take the third left, (Sedgewick Street). Follow this road, pass a set of traffic calming barriers, and shops (at this point you are in Cromwell Road) to a T-junction, (Coldham's Lane). Ahead of you should be a large field (Coldham's Common). Go into this field and follow a path under the railway bridge to the away turnstiles.
Rivals - Peterborough United, Luton Town, Northampton Town and Stevenage
Travel: The usual marathon journey (for me). South Dundee to London (475 miles) by Megabus, then a train from North London to Cambridge (65 miles). A 1060 mile round trip. A convoluted walk from Cambridge town centre to the ground, which took around 30-40 minutes, but still manageable.
Refreshments: I arrived in Cambridge around 10am to give me a chance to look around town, to see some sights I vaguely remembered. I also went to the shopping mall and the High Street. I then went for a few beers in 'The Regal', 'The Prince Regent' and 'The Grain and Hop Store'. In this last bar I spoke with a couple of Cambridge fans and had some general football chat. They were intrigued about the two football grounds in Dundee being only 200 yards apart (the closest grounds in the UK). They also bemoaned the fact they were losing their 'top player' Leon Legge, as his contract had come to an end with the club.
Impressions: The ground is a bit of a mish mash of terraces (the Habbin - South side open, North side closed). A two thirds width of the pitch stand behind one goal. A half opened bigger seated stand behind the other goal (for away fans). The Main Stand running the length of the pitch. I was on the terrace in 'the Habbin', a few pillars here, but I still got a decent view of the action.
Atmosphere: A goal fest for the neutral, Cambridge scoring five on 5/5, which must have been some kind of omen. Two goals in the last 10 minutes of the first half from Amoo and Dunk. In the last 20 minutes Cambridge added 3 more, through Halliday smashing a 25 yarder into the top corner. Barry Corr with a fine strike from just inside the box and a cool Water's finish five minutes from time to complete the rout in front of just under 5,000 fans. No issues with stewards or facilities. I had a double cheeseburger and a pint for £8.50 at half time, which was fine.
Exit: No problems for me strolling back to town, stopping at 'The Tram Depot' pub to check on latest football for a pint.
Enjoy: Another good day out in fantastic weather in a lovely town. I should learn my lesson and not drink in the pub closest to train station, a pint of Camden Hells Lager £5.50, they must be having a laugh. I will soon have to save up to afford that price.
