Club statement in response to reports in the media and on social media regarding the future of the AJ Bell Stadium.
Sale Sharks CEO Sid Sutton said: “It is an incredibly exciting time for the club and our fans at the moment with a talented group of players and staff taking us to a Champions Cup quarter final and a strong position in the Premiership.
“Our club is going from strength to strength and in order to continue this growth it has always been our ambition to own our own stadium. It’s no secret that in recent years we have been exploring options and carrying out due diligence on a number of ways to achieve this. However, at this stage no formal offer has been tendered in relation to the purchase of the AJ Bell Stadium by Sale Sharks.
“I would encourage the facilitation of a public meeting, including Salford City Council, Peel Holdings, Salford Red Devils, Sale Sharks and Salford City FC, to discuss the options for creating a viable home for all local clubs. It is imperative this meeting is based on honesty and openness surrounding the situation, with the aim of providing clarity on the future homing of all concerned clubs.”
