Third-tier English soccer side Carlisle United have upgraded a deal with Virgin Trains that will see the company become the club’s main shirt sponsor.

Virgin Trains, whose trains visit 42 stations, including Carlisle, across its four routes from London, has signed a two-year deal with the club, upgrading from its current status as Carlisle’s official travel partner.

From the beginning of the 2014/15 season, Virgin will replace the Stobart Group on the front of Carlisle’s playing shirts.

Logistics company Stobart has backed the team since 1995.
