The Peninsula Stadium (capacity 5,108)
Originally known as Salford Central, the club was founded in 1940, and have been playing their home games at the Peninsula Stadium (known as Moor Lane to some), since 1978. Under the ownership of former Manchester United players Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and David Beckham, the club were promoted to the football league for the first time in May 2019.
The stadium itself is unrecognisable from what it was even as recently as 2016, with major development in order to meet the standards of entering the football league. It has seen the capacity rise from 1,600 to over 5,000. The newly renovated stadium was opened by Sir Alex Ferguson in October 2017.
Away Fans visiting the Peninsula Stadium are located in one half of the East Stand, with a typical allocation of 1,100.
There is no parking at the stadium itself for away fans, although there is limited street parking in the surrounds. However, some streets are in a residents only parking scheme, so please do be mindful of the signage when looking for somewhere to park. There is also a park and ride scheme in operation, which is based nearby in Swinton.
