🚗 Away Day Guide: Salford City (A)

All-in-one guide to Salford.

28 October 2021

Exeter City travel to Salford City on Saturday in search for another three points. For those travelling to Greater Manchester, here's an away guide to the Peninsula Stadium

The Ground

Stadium

  • Name: Peninsula Stadium
  • Capacity: 5,108

  • Record Attendance: 4,518 (v Leeds United, League Cup 1st Round, 13th August 2019)

In October 2017, Sir Alex Ferguson re-opened the now sponsored Peninsular Stadium and in 2019 the ground hosted its first C-team international when England took on Wales.

City took nearly 700 fans to the ground on our inaugural visit in 2019. We have been provided with 416 tickets in advance in the East Stand terrace and North Stand Block B (216 seated and 200 standing).

Parking:

Salford are not able to offer any on-site parking, and due to this the club recommend using alternative methods of transport wherever possible.

There are strict parking restrictions in place around The Peninsula Stadium - only residents with permits are allowed to park within these zones, which are marked at the end of the streets. These are also shared on social media in the build-up to each home match.

Please park responsibly and be considerate of neighbours when arriving at or leaving the ground.

Pubs and matchday refreshment:

Despite being in a residential area, there are little pubs around the vicinity of the ground and its location away from both Manchester and Salford City centre’s make it frustrating to catch a last-minute pint without dashing for a taxi.

That said, The Ammies offer drinks and refreshments in the away end, though the clubhouse is home supporters only.

Manchester Piccadilly has many bars around the area being close to Manchester City central so if you’re coming by train, a popular spot for away fans is the bar inside the station before their next transfer.

Your support has been second to none so far this season and we can’t wait to see you all again on the road at Salford. As always, we wish the safest travels to everyone on their way up to Greater Manchester and we’ll see you there for another enticing League fixture.
