MATCH PREVIEW: CARLISLE UNITED

26 February 2024

THE Brewers return to the Pirelli Stadium hoping to bounce back from Saturday’s home defeat to Northampton Town.

The visitors are Carlisle United in for a rearranged game after the original date was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Burton Albion v Carlisle United takes place tomorrow, with a 7.45pm kick off. Tickets for the original date remain valid.

DID YOU KNOW?

Carlisle played in the old First Division in 1974/1975 and after winning their first three fixtures were top of the league. Sadly, they went on to finish bottom and were relegated that season.

HEAD-TO-HEAD

The two clubs have played each other only three times since the Brewers were promoted to the Football League. Albion have won one, drawn one and lost one, with the defeat coming when the two teams met in October when Carlisle ran out 2-1 winners.

FAMILY ZONE

Our regular Family Zone will be in operation for this game, now starting two hours before kick-off and it is open to home and away supporters.

Come and try out football, archery, inflatable fun, colouring and much more on the 3G pitch and inside the community building.

There is plenty more information for young fans on the club website such as the history of the club, how to become a mascot and fun things to do such as our autograph and colouring sheets which you can download now - click here to visit our Family Section!

FOOD & DRINK

We have a wide range of food and drink inside the ground - including jacket potatoes, hot dogs, burgers, chips and our famous faggots and peas.

By popular demand Madri beer is available in all home bars.

SPONSORS

Our Match sponsors are from Pirelli.

Since the 1920s, Pirelli has played a huge role in the history of Burton, with the site acting as a landmark for residents and visitors alike, including home and travelling fans to the Pirelli Stadium. Today, the HQ remains a short distance from the Pirelli Stadium, and you can access Pirelli tyres directly from a network of Pirelli Performance Centres throughout the country, including the flagship retail tyre depot here in Burton. Visit the centre off Derby Road for your next tyre fitment and experience the highest levels of technical care and expertise. This fixture is particularly important for Pirelli, as Carlisle is also home to the firm’s other UK manufacturing site. Representing Pirelli will be Simon Dolman, Pirelli UK Industrial Director, and his guests.

Our Matchball Delivery sponsor ATL is back with us with Simon Dolman from Pirelli taking the ball out on their behalf.
