Salford’s Super League stadium move takes vital new twist

A new twist in the future of the Salford Red Devils’ home at the AJ Bell Stadium has come to the fore.

The Manchester Evening News has reported that community groups will take precedence if Salford’s current home is placed on the market – at the request of the Red Devils.

That being said, the paper has also revealed that plans to sell the stadium will not come under threat.

Currently, the Red Devils stadium share with rugby union side Sale Sharks with the latter wanting to become sole owners of the venue.

That means that Salford would have to change their payment situation to afford staying at the AJ Bell, hence the desire to move – with a view to taking the club to Moor Lane, Salford City FC’s current venue.

“If we could secure the stadium for the medium to the long-term we would have he opportunity to be the masters of our own destiny – the naming rights and privy to advertising would all be chosen by ourselves,” King said.

“At the moment at the AJ Bell that isn’t possible and that becomes the revenue for the stadium company.

“We also don’t have any benefits regarding food and beverage receipts which is what we hoped would get at Moor Lane.

“With Moor Lane, it has its challenges regarding parking, accessibility and you’re essentially trading your office space.

“But, if we can secure those elements of the deal then in essence what will we do is we will play 14 games a year and find accommodation around here.”
