Colchester United FC - Weston Homes Stadium
The Weston Homes Community Stadium was opened in time for the start of the 2008-09 season. The stadium has an all seated capacity of 10,000 with all 4 stands of similar height and size all offering unobstructed views of the game. The stadium complex includes sporting, leisure and business facilities, including hospitality suites helping the club to earn every day of the week.
Visiting supporters are now situated at the northern end of the Jobserve East Stand. However, if the away following exceeds 1,000 they can be moved to the North Stand, which can accommodate up to 2,000 supporters. Neither area have a single seat with a bad or obstructed view. The stands are quite steep, meaning that fans are kept close to the pitch allowing them to generate a good atmosphere. Facilities are as good as you'd expect them to be from such a new ground whilst the food ranges from sausage rolls and pies to burgers and chips.

Where To Drink
There are very few establishments within easy walking distance of the ground at present. The best bet for home and away supporters is to grab a drink and something to eat from the town centre before getting the bus over to the stadium. There are plenty of places to go including the Fox and Fiddler which serves a number of real ales. Also on St John's Street and almost next door is the Playhouse, which is a Wetherspoons outlet. This former theatre is a spectacular setting for a bar, as the original dress circle and stage of the theatre have been preserved and is well worth a visit.
There are 600 parking spaces on site and at present, there is plenty of parking available on the industrial estate. Once the area is built on it may be slightly more difficult to find a space away from the ground itself. Being as close to the a12 as it is, there are few surrounding streets.
