A SPECIAL welcome is being put on for young fans attending the League Cup first round match between Carlisle United and Derby County
Competition sponsors Capital One have teamed up with the Cumbrians in a bid to make children visiting Brunton Park feel extra welcome by offering paying adults up to five childrens' tickets for just £1 each.
Youngsters will be greeted with a series of installations and activities including complimentary booster seats to make sure they get a great view of the action, free pick ‘n’ mix and face painting.
Capital One will also offer a specially-designed ticket for youngsters to colour in, then enter a competition to be in with a chance of winning tickets to the next Carlisle home game.
Carlisle chairman Andrew Jenkins said: “With this great offer from Capital One we are expecting more kids than normal to be attending our fixture – it’s a brilliant way to kick off the season.
“We’ll be offering a few unique initiatives on the night and hope that it will be a truly memorable game for the children.”
