PRE-MATCH UPDATES: Handy tips ahead of the weekend

Match day information for the visit of Crawley

2 August 2019

A big welcome to our sponsors

Our associate sponsor on Saturday is Borderbrite. Regular sponsors and partners of the club, it's always a pleasure to see them here with us at Brunton Park.

Borderbrite 

We welcome Heineken once again as our match ball sponsor. Also regular sponsors of this package, keep an eye out for them as they take to the centre circle as part of our pre-kick off build up.

Major Roadworks

As everybody in Carlisle is more than aware, major roadworks are ongoing on most of the routes which head towards the stadium.

Greystone Road - directly opposite the eastern entry to Brunton Park - has been closed, and a traffic light system is in place towards St Aidans Church.

This is causing long delays for traffic heading in all directions to and from the ground.

Please plan for what could be significant delays into your journey.

For a reminder on the guidelines for supporters using the car parks - with entry and exit restricted to 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after kick off respectively - click HERE.

--------

Remember, you can purchase your tickets by telephone on 0330 094 5930 or buy online and print at home, or order for collection, by clicking HERE.  

Save £3 on match day prices [for games with no promotional offers] by purchasing your ticket before 5pm on Friday.

Popping into the Blues Store this week ... did you know we also sell home match tickets from the Blues Store?

Speak to our friendly staff in the Store and they'll help you to get your ticket for this weekend's game.
