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.
