It is a bit like Rugby, a bit like football but nothing like sport as most people know it.
To win the game, Downies must hail the ball on the dockside while Uppies have to hail it at Workington Hall in Curwen Park.
The Good Friday game starts at 6.30pm when the ball is thrown off the bridge at the Cloffocks. The second legs starts at the same time on Tuesday with the third held on Saturday, April 6.
