Carlisle United unveiled their new 2007-2008 home kit made by Le Coq Sportif.

Carlisle United F.C. are an English football team based in Carlisle, Cumbria, play in the Football League One this season, after gaining promotion from the Football League Two at the end of the 2005-06 season.

The club was formed when two Carlisle based teams, Shaddongate United and Carlisle Red Rose, merged in 1903. The newly formed club initially played at Milhome Bank and later at Devonshire Park, finally settling at their current home Brunton Park situated on Warwick Road.

Due to the club's geographical location (Carlisle is somewhat isolated in the far north-west of England, very close to the Scottish border) and due to their lack of recent success in England, the club was once rumoured to be interested in joining the Scottish football league system over the years[citation needed]. As Carlisle United were just crowned champions of League Two in May 2006, and drawing the largest attendances in their division, it is now certain they will be remaining in England on a permanent basis.
