PRE-MATCH UPDATE: Handy tips ahead of the weekend game

What's going on at Brunton Park on Saturday

6 February 2019

It feels like forever since we were last at Brunton Park but, with the #8kforMK campaign in full flow, we're hoping to see you all on Saturday for what is another important fixture.

A big welcome to today's sponsors

Our United for Buiness members are our match sponsors this weekend as they join us for a fascinating insight into the world of the referee with special guest Dave Allison.

This is the penultimate United for Business meeting of the season and it's great to see so many businesses represented on Saturday for what is a flourishing group.

We wish a very happy 60th birthday to Neil Irving as he celebrates his big day with us as our associate match sponsor

His family and friends will be in our hospitality areas with us and we're looking forward to helping to make this special occasion a memorable one.

Happy birthday Neil!

Our match ball sponsors are long-standing club partners Carlisle Glass and Opera Bingo. Both are regulars at Brunton Park, supporting the club in a variety of ways, and we're looking forward to seeing them and their guests with us on Saturday.

Join us for our Happy Hour, as we now offer ...
