A big welcome to our match day sponsors
Our match sponsor this weekend is the Long Brown Dog. We're looking forward to welcoming Duncan and his colleagues into our hospitality areas on Saturday and we hope they have a fantastic afternoon with us!
Our associate sponsor for the game is Travis Perkins. Regular sponsors over the years we're looking forward to seeing them back with us at Brunton Park this weekend.
Have a great day with us everyone!
Keep an eye on the pitch at half time as Carlisle Reivers under-9s go up against CastleTown Reds under-9's in what is bound to another exciting game. Remember to pick a team and cheer the boys on!
We're also looking forward to welcoming St Bedes School, Warwick Bridge School and Shankhill CE School as part of our extremely popular Cumberland Community Ticket Scheme. Have a great day with us gang!

The Supporters’ Car Park
The car park is struggling with the wet weather at the moment.
It looks highly likely that it will be closed this weekend - apologies for any inconcenience this will cause.
Season ticket, press, scouts and disabled parking will be available as normal, and is situated at the north end of the Pioneer Stand, and is for Blue Badge holders only.
Remember – access has changed due to new counter-terrorism advice. Both of our Warwick Road car entry points are now closed 30 minutes prior to kick off, with access then diverted to the Stonyeholme Golf Course entrance.
For full details, click HERE.
Warwick Road traffic nightmares continue
Just when we thought it was done, more traffic lights appeared and chaos returned!
Botcherby Bridge has a set of temporary lights in place, for very good safety reasons, but it is causing very long delays in all directions as you approach Brunton Park.
Delays can be anything from 5 to 45 minutes, depending on volume of traffic, so please have this in mind when you plan your journey for Saturday.
Remember, you can purchase your match 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?

Don't miss out on our special Jimmy Glass 90+5 brew!
The club and CUSC London Branch have teamed up to stock a special, limited edition brew called '90+5' to commemorate one of the most famous moments in the history of the game.
It proved to be very popular at the Oldham game, so make sure you get yours this weekend – while stocks last!
The 500ml bottles will be available for £4 from the Sunset Suite, Sporting Inn and Foxy's restaurant. It is also on sale from Bar 301 at the station and from The Local on English Street.
10% of sales will be donated to MNDA to carry on the wonderful fund-raising effort which was inspired by the family of club legend and favourite Tony Hopper.
The profits will go back to the London Branch which is committed to reinvesting in Carlisle United, following its long established tradition which continues to see it support many club initiatives and projects.
