Salford City Stadium - Sale Sharks' new home

The whole North-West have been speaking about it for the last few of days. Sale Sharks are about to move to the new stadium. The information has been officially confirmed at the press conference. After nine years in Stockport, Sale Sharks decided to move to the new place. We will only see two more games at Edgeley Park, new season will start at the Salford City Stadium in Barton. The modern facility, which recently has been put into use, will be shared between two teams - Sale Sharks and rugby league Salford Reds. The decision to move was enthusiastically welcomed. Both experts and majority of fans believe that the new facility will improve the image of the club and help to achieve Steve Diamond's goals.

At the press conference club's CEO once again mentioned the already started Sale Sharks' metamorphosis process. The aim is to build North-West most powerful club. In four years’ time Sale Sharks want to become team fighting for the highest trophies in Aviva Premiership and European rugby. If they achieve this goal, the stadium, which is able to accommodate 20000 fans, will certainly become useful.

The first game at Salford City Stadium is scheduled for August 2012, our opponent is Leinster.
