We take a look at what’s going on ahead of Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup match vs Cambridge United
We Fight Any Claim Marquee
The Marquee is the place to for County fans to go ahead of the match. A fantastic atmosphere to enjoy the pre-match build up.
Weather permitting, it’s a welcome return for 5-a-side football with the County in the Community team. They will be holding a drop-in football match (just outside the We Fight Any Claim) from 12.30pm-1.30pm.

Spot the ball, guess which players face is obscured by an emoji and test your knowledge of players squad numbers with our player maths all on the Junior Exiles Page. You can also get a poster of Robbie Willmott, read up on the opposition and reminisce about previous matches between Cambridge and Newport. All for just £3!
Half Time Draw
The new and improved Half Time Draw (formerly the 50/50 draw) is still going strong. Our winner at our match vs Barnet walked away with half the money raised (just under £200) whilst the three runners up took home fantastic prizes including money off at the Club Shop and two free cinema tickets.
You can find out exactly what prizes are available and how you can be a winner without actually winning (yes, really) by clicking on the link below.
The Club shop will be open from 10am until kick off for you to pick up all your merchandise, shirts or programmes! We will also be open for 30 minutes after the full-time whistle.
It’s the perfect chance to get your hands on our fantastic, newly-launched, black third kit, copies of Football Manager 2018, bespoke car stickers and much, much more.
The Programme Shop
Not only is this the best place to purchase your matchday programme, The Programme Shop also boasts matchday programmes dating back over 40 years!
Located between the old Snelling Bar and the Club Shop, the Programme Shop is a little treasure trove of Matchday Programmes and Club badges from over 200 Clubs. There are also stock books, magazines and a whole host of interesting football-related items for you to browse and buy. All this tucked away in a nook of Rodney Parade!
The Programme Shop will open at midday and close at kick off but will re-open for an hour after the match.
Rainbow Laces Campaign
We are proud to join the other 91 League Clubs in supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign. The joint initiative by the EFL, Premier League, PGMOL, and The FA will show football standing together in support of LGBT inclusivity.
Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign aims to make sport everyone’s game with national teams, leading clubs, professional players, fans and grassroots players from across football showing their support for LGBT people in sport.
First Visit to Rodney Parade?
Rodney Parade is located right in the heart of the City meaning there's always plenty to do before and after a game. We aim to create a fantastic atmosphere throughout the whole ground to allow you to really enjoy your time in Newport.
