Salford City Football Club

This significant project required much of the material for the external cladding and roof sheeting to be specially sourced to meet the exact needs of the client. We built the stands using a unique sheeting design with mesh panels to match the architect’s vision, creating a stunning effect when completed.

One of the challenges we faced was Storm Doris early in the build. The steelwork continued to go up to keep to programme, although our team were very wet and windswept while advertising boards flew round the site! TV cameras captured each stage of the build as part of Sky Sports’ documentary “Class of ’92: Full Time” showcasing the club’s journey into a full-time club and the development of the ground.

We successfully completed the fourth and final stand up to full capacity in time to accommodate the crowds lucky enough to watch the club’s highly-anticipated charity match in November 2017. This special day saw the legends of the Class of ’92 play on the pitch at the newly named Peninsula Stadium.

Salford City’s new ground showcases our lightweight stands, quality ground improvements and attention to detail in its entirety and we continue to build ground improvements on site, most recently more turnstiles in Spring 2019. We’re very proud to be the complete solution for our client.

Project Scope

In late 2016 we were excited to be awarded the contract to redevelop Salford City’s existing much-loved but tired ground at Moor Lane. After gaining two promotions and with new owners on board, including ex-footballers Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, the club had big plans to succeed in full-time football and build a brand new stadium.
