Carlisle United

Club Profile

First Played: 2004-5

Win Rate: 33% (from 24 games)

Last Updated: 07 July 2021

After first meeting them in the Conference, we came to know Carlisle United a little better up in the Football League. The shock of relegation in the mid-2000s ensured they made a quick return; beating us in the 2004-5 Nationwide Conference playoff final, as if you that’s a reminder you need. It took us six years and two promotions to catch up with them in; at the time, we were both in League One. The Cumbrians stuck with us too as we both lost the battle for survival at the end of the 2013-4 campaign.

Carlisle United Ground Information

Away Fans’ Stand

Pioneer Stand

Ticket Info

Facilities for Disabled Fans

If you use a wheelchair, space is provided in the Waterworks End. If the weather isn’t nice, however, you’ll be moved below and adjacent to the main away area in order to get some shelter. Tickets for wheelchair users are £4 each, with one carer allowed in free of charge.

You can buy tickets in advance or on the day. Wheelchair spaces are limited, though, and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you have sight problems, the advice is to bring a portable radio to benefit from full match commentary on BBC Radio Cumbria. For more information, call (01228) 526237.

The car park behind the Pioneer Stand offers limited disabled car parking spaces. Free of charge, these spaces are only available to Blue Badge Holders.

Pre-Match Pints

Located almost next door to the stadium, Carlisle Rugby Club is known to open its bar to away fans. It caters for families too. The Beehive on Warwick Road might be an option; certain away fans aren’t allowed in, though you’d surely think that won’t include Boro’ fans.

Carlisle United Travel Information – Distance: 272 miles

By Road

It won’t be lost on anyone making this trip that you and your car will become best buds. For Carlisle, we’re taking the shortest route with this guide. For this, head north on the A1(M) and A1 and keep going north until we tell you to stop. Are you at Scotch Corner yet? Right, well, now you can stop. Safely, obvs.

Once at Scotch Corner, leave the A1 after this 200-mile leg and take the A66 towards Penrith. This is the third exit from the roundabout. Bear in mind the Holiday Inn is the second, however, so don’t confuse yourself. From here, it’s a 50-mile straight drive to the M6 on the other side.

Take the M6 north. For the football ground, you need Junction 43. Here, use the first exit at the roundabout for the city centre; following the road through two sets of lights. Carlisle United’s ground will eventually be off to the right of the road.

Home and away fans can use the main car park, which you can access from behind the Pioneer Stand. It costs £3 to use this facility. If the weather is iffy, however, the car park may not be available. The club also says cars can only leave the car park once all fans are clear of the area and any coaches have left too.

By Rail

Services to: LONDON EUSTON

As you come out of the station, head left until you are on Court Square. From here, head right and cross English Street/Botchergate running perpendicular to the A6 in front of you. Follow the A6 round to the left and then turn right when you reach Nando’s.

Now you’re on Warwick Road. It’s more or less a straight line from here, if you count the kink right after the Catholic church; a 0.8-mile straight line if you’re counting too.
