This illustrates football as it existed in most stadia in England until recently, with no seats in the stand. This means that more fans can be packed in, providing a more exciting atmosphere. Unfortunately concerns for safety have led to the introduction of seats in many grounds, including in the east stand.

In November 2003 the club asked for planning permission to re-develop part of the site in order to provide a one-off financial boost. This would include the demolition and rebuilding of the north stand, as well as some housing and a hotel.

At the end of the 2004/2005 football season Cambridge United was relegated from the Football League and went into administration. In 2014 they made it back into the Football League.
