Uncertainty remains over the Red Devils stadium future


Recommended Posts

Any team playing in the City of Manchester should be called Manchester. We should have a team in RL playing out of the MRA  arena and grow the sport to new commercial partners. 

Manchester vs Leeds,  Manchester vs Warrington and yes Manchester vs Salford. 

But that cant happen if Salford get dumped there.

No just start a new team.  The hassle  and baggage of taking old teams and rebranding  (esp when both teams would be in 3rd tier anyway, is not worth it.

A team from Manchester called Mancester Rangers applied to join League 1, but the RFL turned them down

I know and it looks even more stupid now with the RFL working out of Manchester and the wider decline of RL in Greater Manchester.

Prosaic would be a good word to describe the RFL over this

I saw 'on another blog' that the chairman of Salford Reds Supporters Club was basically  suggesting that the best thing was to leave the AJ Bell.     It was not financially viable for Salford for one thing, and it's likely to be sold to Sale anyway.

On they should leave and find a better homw if possible. They are going to be forced to leave soon anyway. It was always a crappy location with no public transport links in a time where working class people and people living in urban environments are far less likely to own a car. 

6-6,500 max is what they need.

Not sure where you think the few fans we have live or that they are all working class. 

The simple fact is people will moan where ever the team play. People find their way to the Trafford Centre, there was pre covid a bus from there on match days.

The current stadium is expensive, Salford receive no revenue and that is the main issue.

You clearly have no idea about Salford Red Devil’s, the stadium, it’s location and the areas where the fans reside, there are a couple of regular bus services that service the stadium, plus another run by the Supporters Trust, the location is not anywhere as bad as many, some who have never been to the stadium,suggest it is.

The stadium has more car parking than most if not all Super League clubs  and the facilities are first class and the stadium company have took on board the initial problems that came up at the beginning and rectified them.

No clearly no idea. No idea about their poor attendances or oversized stadium. No idea that it is 40 minuted by bus from Salford proper by bus or a 30 minute walk from the Trafford Centre. No idea that it is absolutely unserviced by railway or metro. 

No idea either about the wildly over optimistic predictions for attendances. Thanks for enlightening me, going to put you on mute now.

I realise you won't read this, You still miss the point that many fans don't live in what you class as "proper Salford" Neither I or WSRD

The reality is even in their heyday Salford have never drawn huge crowds, football is king in the Manchester and Salford City area.

Well had Swinton Lions rebranded to Manchester Lions then there would have been a Manchester v Salford pre season friendly.

I was thinking that Oldham and Rochdale could merge and be called Oldham Rochdale United Football rugbY East Division. Or Oldham Rufyeds for short. We could wear red and white hoop shirts of Oldham and blue shorts of Rochdale. Before anyone gets their knickers in a twist, I too am joking, I wouldn't go and support a team other than Oldham.

Thanks for that link.

Interesting to see that a club from another code,and a soccer club,are making sacrifices,and delaying certain actions,so the best interests of a ' cash limited ' rugby league club can be considered;and given time.

How different from owners of Super League clubs and their attitude and actions towards ' cash limited ' rugby league clubs.

Good luck,Salford.

During the due diligence process, it became apparent that financially remaining at the AJ Bell Stadium wasn’t an option for Salford Red Devils. In addition, they openly said that they couldn’t afford to either buy the AJ Bell Stadium or stay there as a tenant so we actively sought a second party to buy the stadium with us.
 

sounds a done deal
