Brunton Park (capacity 17,949)
Brunton Park has been home to Carlisle United since 1909, just a few years after the club was formed. It is actually the largest stadium in England which is not all-seated. The stadium has had to overcome a number of disasters, including the Grandstand burning down in 1953, and then the stadium completely flooding in both 2005 and 2015.
A curious feature of the stadium is that the Pioneer East Stand runs 20 yards past the goal line at the Northern end of the pitch. This is because plans to move the pitch further north to accommodate a new stand were abandoned, meaning the stand is still off centre.
Away fans visiting Brunton Park are located on one side of the Pioneer East Stand, with a typical allocation of around 2,000. Part of the Petterill End terrace can also be made available if required.
Parking is available at the stadium but supporters are advised to arrive early to guarantee a space. There is also a nearby Industrial Estate which is popular among away fans.
