Get behind the U’s with the Colchester United Official Matchday Playlist


Make sure you get along to home games at the Colchester Community Stadium in time to take in the pre-match atmosphere with Colchester United’s Official Matchday Playlist, which you can now stream on Spotify.

The Essex side are flying high at the top end of League Two, as they look to challenge for promotion from the fourth tier of English football in the 2018-19 campaign under head coach John McGreal.

Whilst they’ve spent most of their history playing in the third and fourth divisions, the club had their best run of form back in 2007, finishing 10th in the Championship, above fierce local rivals Norwich City.

The 20 songs topping the matchday playlist, which will be played inside the ground ahead of every home game, are selected by by a Colchester United fan, one away supporter and a Col U player, along with a selection of the hottest new tracks from Shoot Music.

Ahead of this weekend’s clash with Swindon, midfielder Sammie Szmodic has added The Jam‘s smash hit ‘Town Called Malice’ to the pre-match playlist, along with top tunes from Yarbrough And Peoples, Aseven, Chris Brown and Avelino.

U’s fan Andy Thomas turns back the clock for his picks, choosing classic tracks from Cranberries, Simple Minds, ELO, The Cure and Thin Lizzy.

Visting Robins supporter Richie Pullens adds songs from Half Man Half Biscuit, The Von Bondies, The Futureheads, The Pigeon Detectives and The Avett Brothers to the playlist.

Saturday’s matchday playlist is rounded off by five of the hottest new releases from Bring Me The Horizon, Ian Brown, Snow Patrol, The Prodigy and Rudimental & Tom Walker.
