smarterVENUES has various football advertising options in and around Colchester United Football Club JobServe Stadium. Whether you're looking for local or national football advertising options, smarterVENUES can help. On this page you'll find out everything you need to know about advertising at Colchester United.


We're able to get you in front of groups of fans via our concourse 6 Sheet advertising posters. 6 Sheet's these give you the chance to get what you do in front of fans while they are in groups, meaning a higher likelihood of them talking about your advertising. You don't have to advertise all the way around the stadium for your advertising to be effective; we're able to target particular groups of fans by focusing on different areas of the ground, whether that be getting your brand in front of more affluent fans by targeting the areas around the halfway line, or family ticket holders around the family zones.

Fans spend between 2 and 4 1/2 hours in the stadium per match, and these concourse options are great for catching them as they hang out discussing the game.


If you would prefer one on one engagement with the fans on matchdays then try our A3-sized posters in the washrooms. We're able to offer two different zones in our washrooms: the first zone is the urinals giving you true one on one time with the audience, while the second is the hand washing area (where our advertising posters are placed above the sinks and around hand driers).

Both zones offer high dwell times of 30-60 seconds


If you want huge impact advertising than giant screens are the format for you. At Cardiff City Football Club we have a giant screen over looking the pitch and ads plays before, during half time and after the game. Giant screens are actionable, noticiable and hit big numbers with the audience, making them great for all kinds of advertising.


Colchester United aka The U’s (previously the Oystermen, as the town has been famous for oyster production since Roman times.) was founded in 1937.

The team are currently in League Two, which is the fourth tier of the English Football League.

After 30 years of discussions and various site suggestions, a location in the north of Colchester, called Cuckoo Farm was settled on as for the club’s ground. Detailed planning permission was fully granted in June 2007, replacing the club's Layer Road ground, which had been their home since 1937.

In 2008 the club moved into the Colchester Community Stadium (known as the JobServe Community Stadium for sponsorship reasons). It is an all-seater stadium and has a capacity of 10,105.

The stadium is divided up into four stands, with each stand incorporating disabled access. The West Stand is the largest, which houses 24 executive boxes and corporate areas. These areas can hold up to 400 diners in the Layer and Centennial suites. A television gantry is placed on the roof of the stand above the executive boxes.

The North Stand is designated for away supporters, and the East Stand is home to the family enclosure. The South Stand houses the U’s vocal supporters, where up to 2,000 fans can sit.

Utilising the space of the suites, the stadium hosts conferences, banquets, weddings, parties and events. The stadium features a 600 space car park and hosts boxing dinners, darts opens, comedy nights and other social events.

The stadium has been used for England U21 and U19 International games and open-air music venues, welcoming in 2014 Sir Elton John and in 2017 Olly Murs.
