Businessman reveals incredible plan to buy Super League club and secure stadium future

There could well be something incredible brewing in Super League following a tweet sent out last night.

Salford Red Devils have had their struggles well known in trying to secure their future at the AJ Bell Stadium in recent seasons, but businessman Sebastian Gerrard is determined to turn the fortunes of the Manchester club around.

And, he revealed in a tweet that discussions are currently ongoing: “Good evening Salford! Over the last couple of month’s my team and I have been working hard to put a offer together to buy the Salford community stadium. Aka the AJ Bell. I would like to secure Salford Red Devils future and home. #keepitsalford . #TogetherStronger who’s with us?!?”

Gerrard continued: “We would also like to bring Swinton lions back to Salford & keep it the community stadium for us, the people of Salford, as it was intended. #TogetherStronger #keepitsalford.”

Salford Red Devils Managing Director Paul King previously commented on the discussions held with Gerrard at the club.

“It’s no secret that Salford Red Devils operate without a benefactor in Super League and with that a much leaner financial situation. Further investment would unlock potential as an elite sports organisation in the Salford and Greater Manchester region. I welcome these talks, especially as Salford Red Devils is a community club, when business owners like Sebastian are local. Personally, I wish Sebastian every success with the proposal as it is further evidence that rugby league is a valued asset to this region.’

“The AJ Bell Stadium has been the home of Salford Red Devils rugby league team for ten years. With a second local team Swinton Lions already using the stadium facilities, it is playing an important role in community rugby league within the region. A potential stadium move has been on the agenda for Salford Red Devils, but there will be no changes for the remainder of this season or the 2023 season. Season ticket holders and fans can expect to remain at the AJ Bell Stadium for the near future.”
