Cambridge United are a professional football club from Cambridge, England. They compete in the Conference Premier, the fifth tier of the English football league system, where they have played since the 2005–06 season, following their relegation from the Football League after 35 years.
Cambridge United have had two spells in the league’s second tier, reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup twice and Football League Cup once. United’s highest ever finishing place in the Football League is fifth in the Second Division during the 1991–92 season, narrowly missing out on being promoted to the first tier and becoming founding members of the Premier League. The club is based at the Abbey Stadium on Newmarket Road, approximately 3 kilometres East of Cambridge City Centre. The stadium currently has a capacity of 10,847 made up of terracing and seated areas.
Although the club has traditionally worn amber and black at home, it has experimented with a number of designs of shirts including plain amber with black trim, amber and black squares, stripes and amber with a black sash.
Most recently, Cambridge United won the FA Trophy for the first time in their history, beating Gosport Borough 4-0 to clinch the title.
