Carlisle United's record-breaking replica shirts are expected back in store this week.

And the Blues are inviting fans to pre-order the hugely popular home and away kits.

Carlisle have announced they have already sold more than 6,000 of the blue home and 'fruit salad' away strips.

That is almost double the sales of their 2022/23 kits, which themselves were said to be the most popular on record.

The pink, black and yellow 'fruit salad' away kit has become particularly iconic with fans, while the home kit with its 90s-themed design also earned praise after its summer launch.

"After our biggest re-order on record, the next delivery is nearly here and due in-store on Monday," said United.

Retail manager Stef Mclean added on the club website: “The interest in the shirts this year has been fantastic and everybody has loved both kits. 

"We are expecting huge demand again but the quantity due in is even bigger than last time.

"Fans can now pre-order their shirts again for postal delivery or to click and collect ready for it arriving in-store next week. 

"You can also pre-order shirt printing online, but these orders will take longer to allow staff time to process the printing."

Carlisle expect the Umbro kit to be on sale in the Blues Store from 10am on Monday, with the shop open until 6pm every night this week.

Click and collect orders will be available from 10am on Tuesday, November 21 from the family zone in the Andrew Jenkins Stand.
