There have been some who have criticised Salford Red Devils’ move to become community owned.
As Manging Director Paul King explained the decision on BBC Radio Manchester saying there is a reason the Red Devils play in front of 3,500 to 4,000 fans at the AJ Bell Stadium:
“There’s a reason we play in front of three and a half or four thousand people, and all we’re trying to do is change that.”
He has said that the club are in a position to change things up as they look to cement themselves as a big club after some success lately:
“We just try to change it. We try to build something, we try to build on it and get the community involved, be at the heart of the community, get that love affair going with the club again like we had in the seventies. That’s just where we are. We’re just having a go, really.
“I think it’s not fair we’re getting criticised for having a dig. We’ve been pretty open and honest about where we’re at and if at the end of the day it doesn’t work, then we’ll be back to square one, we’ll be selling to survive but we’ve got to have a go.”
