Super League club’s Managing Director addresses disappointing attendances

It is exciting times at Salford Red Devils on and off the field but a common criticism of the club is their attendances.

Despite being one of the best sides in the league to watch, they struggle to get a 5,000 plus crowd.

Part of this is the fact they routinely seem to play at the same time as Manchester United but now Managing Director Paul King has addressed the crowds at the AJ Bell Stadium:

“There’s a reason we play in front of 4,000 people. We play a fantastic brand of rugby league, as good as in the sport certainly in the northern hemisphere. But the reason is that for 40-odd years I think there’s a point where you’ve done everything you can and people need to rally around and support you.”

This comes as he calls on public and fan support at a time when the club has pushed to be fan owned:

“We now need the public, the people of Salford and the wider Greater Manchester area to buy shares in the club. It’s not just about that, it’s about 150 years of heritage and hopefully another 150 years to come.”

“I’ve put my house on the line, I’ve done it with my heart and not my head more often than not.
