Colchester United have frozen season-ticket prices for next season.

The U’s will also keep the price of matchday tickets the same for the 2014-15 campaign.

In addition, Colchester have moved to attract more youngsters to the Weston Homes Community Stadium by allowing under-eight supporters to watch games free in the Family Enclosure, on a match-to-match basis.

U’s general manager Tim Waddington said: “We remain conscious of the economic climate and so we’re delighted to have been able to freeze prices for everybody this season.

“We had a really positive reaction to the level of our prices last season, so we’re pleased to be able to keep them at those prices for another season when so many other prices in day to day life continue to rise on a day to day basis.

“Once again, our fans have been fantastic in backing the players this season, so we hope that this is due reward to those that have been right behind us.”

Season-tickets for the 2014-15 season are expected to go on sale next month.

I am probably one of the biggest critics of cuckoo farm but well done u's. Good to see another price freeze and deals to attract the youth. Now move the away fans nearer south stand and I may go back on my word and get a season ticket.

With yet another turgid season under the lamentable management of Joe Dunne to 'look forward' to, even a price freeze looks bad value for money tbh.

What choice do they have if they can't get a consistently reasonable crowd at current prices, its called consolidation!

I'm sure many football fans who have seen there teams stagnate but ticket prices go up would disagree. This is a positive sign from the club

This is good news for season ticket holders and makes my decision on whether to renew or not a smidge easier after recently having second thoughts. Good work CUFC! However, I do think the club need to reduce match day ticket prices to do more to attract the floating fan who wants to come and watch the U's on the day of the match. Charging £22 - £30 to watch CUFC on the same day is too much considering it is League One football.
