League Two: Carlisle United suspend sale of home and away tickets after Storm Desmond


Carlisle United have suspended the sale of tickets for home and away matches following the effects of Storm Desmond on their Brunton Park Stadium.

The devastating storm over the weekend has seen a record amount of rain fall in Cumbria and Brunton Park, as well as large parts of the Carlisle, is under several feet of water.

The Cumbrians were in FA Cup Second Round action at the weekend against non-league side Welling United, hundreds of miles away from their now beleaguered home ground.

They at least gave Carlisle fans something to cheer with a resounding 5-0 win on Sunday afternoon, with players and staff also stating that they would be available to help those affected by the storm.

The squad and staff will train as normal on Tuesday before then helping in any way they can as residents of the area try and put the storm behind them.

For now though, the effects the storm has had on the club itself are yet to be truly gauged, but they have for now suspended the sale of tickets.
"As things stand, we have suspended ticket and hospitality sales for home and away fixtures-" an official club statement read, "please bear with us as we put new procedures in place, in conjunction with the Football League and the clubs we are scheduled to play."

Their next fixture fortunately is away from home again, at Oxofrd United.
