Carlisle United have set up a "priority" system for the trip to Barrow after confirming the Blues have received just 612 tickets for the game.

United go to Holker Street on March 19 for the first league meeting between the clubs at Barrow's ground in front of fans since 1964.

The all-Cumbrian game could also prove an important one in the League Two survival battle with Carlisle currently third bottom and the Bluebirds fifth bottom.

And United season ticket holders will get the first chance to snap up tickets for the game this weekend.

The Blues said: "We have been allocated 112 seated tickets and 500 terracing tickets.

"Due to the small allocation, we will have a priority sale system in place."

That system sees tickets on sale to season ticket holders only after this Saturday's game at Swindon Town at Brunton Park.

They are available in person only from the ticket office on the west side of the stadium.

If there are any tickets remaining, season ticket holders can then buy them from 10am on Monday, February 21, either in person or from the main ticket office in the Pioneer Stand, or by calling 0330 0945 930 (option 1).

Season ticket holders can only buy one ticket for their own use.

Any further tickets remaining will then go on sale to members including flexi card holders, Olga's Army, London Branch and CUOSC members, from 10am on Friday, February 25.

Should any remain after that, general sale will start on Monday, February 28.

Seating tickets are £19 for adults and terracing is £16.

Prices for 65+ are £15/£13, under-18s £6/£5, and free for under-7s.

Some fans have complained at the relatively small number of tickets given to the Blues.

EFL rules, though, state that clubs must provide 10 per cent of their certified capacity, if that is less than 2,000, with Barrow's allocation to Carlisle more than 10 per cent of the Dunes Hotel Stadium's 5,400 capacity.

That regulation can be suspended or the figure reduced for a period of time, or a particular game, on the prior written application of a club.
