Rochdale vs Colchester United | Sky Bet League Two, Friday 27th August, Crown Oil Arena, 7.45pm Kick-Off

We celebrate our 100th anniversary of being a Football League member on Friday night!

Colchester United are the visitors to the Crown Oil Arena in Sky Bet League Two.

Dale have won back-to-back games on the road, over Northampton Town and Shrewsbury Town, whilst Colchester were 2-1 winners at Oldham Athletic last weekend.


Supporters can purchase tickets for Friday night's game right up until kick-off via our online ticketing website.

Simply buy online and scan the ticket, which will be emailed to you, at the turnstiles upon arrival! You can either scan the email direct from your phone, or print off your ticket at home to scan on the night.

There are no cash turnstiles at the Crown Oil Arena, due to the ground now having automatic turnstiles.

In circumstances where you can only purchase from the Ticket Office, please do not leave this until the last minute. Our new ticketing system requires the details of all purchasers to be stored on our system, so it will take time to process your details and issue your match ticket. Therefore, to avoid delaying your entry to the ground further, please allow plenty of time to visit the Ticket Office.

Turnstiles open an hour before kick-off at 6.45pm.


There is lots going on pre/post-match at Friday's game!

From 5pm there will be an outside bar on the Crown Oil Arena car park, with junior activities on the five-a-side pitch.
