We are delighted to announce that the Sunset Suite reopens at 5.45pm tonight ahead of the pre-season home friendly against Blackburn Rovers.
Renovations have been in progress over the last few weeks on the room which includes the installation of new flooring, redecorating and the addition new furniture and new TV's.
Sales and Marketing Director Phil King said: “We’re delighted that so much work has been done on the catering facilities around Brunton Park, with the changes made to the Sunset Suite set to make a massive difference to the match day experience for our fans.
“Club sponsors World Group, and Matthew Spooner in particular, have been a great assistance in renovating and expanding the catering facilities at Paddock South and behind the Warwick Road End. This support is in addition to the commercial partnership we have with them for the back of shirt sponsorship, which they have continued on from last season.
“Both of the catering units have been pretty much doubled in size, meaning we can serve more fans at peak times before games and at half time. This was one of the problem areas that came up most in a recent fans survey that we conducted and it was something we were aware of being an issue throughout last season.
“World Group have also teamed up with other local businesses, including John Heaney at EEC, Colin Carter at Yesss Electrical, Peter Tyson’s, Atlas Interiors, Pioneer Foodservice, Donaldson’s Furnishers and Carlisle Glass in assisting with the refurbishment of the Sunset Suite.
“As I say, we feel the changes we’ve put in place will be well received by our fans. There are still some minor works to be finalised ahead of the first league game next weekend, including some Carlisle United imagery and memorabilia to be showcased, but we’re looking forward to hearing the feedback on what we feel is a much improved facility.”
The Sporting Inn will also be open this evening, again from 5.45pm.
Turnstiles open at 6.30pm and catering kiosks will be in operation in the Pioneer Bar in the Pioneer Stand, Warwick Road End, Paddock South, McVities Bar and Paddock North.
The catering van will also be in place outside the Cumberland Building Society Stand.
