Salford's very own Super League rugby league team, Salford Red Devils, outgrew their home at The Willows and have moved to the new state of the art AJ Bell Stadium. Salford is also home to Swinton Lions, they play their home games at Heywood Road, in Sale.
The stadium is now also home to the region's premier rugby union side, Sale Sharks so there's plenty of sporting action whichever code you favour. Rugby is a real family sport so why not bring everyone down to cheer on our local sides?
More than this, the AJ Bell Stadium is also a community stadium designed to be used by residents and visitors alike. There are two community outdoor pitches, one grass and one artificial surface, changing rooms, and 600 spaces for car parking. A banqueting suite that can accommodate 750 people means that the stadium is the perfect choice for events, conferences and even weddings.
