MATCHDAY INFO – Northampton Saints

We are back at the AJ Bell this weekend for another round of Gallagher Premiership action! Here’s everything you need to know ahead of kick-off this Saturday evening (Nov 6), as we welcome Northampton Saints to the North.

Sale Sharks v Northampton Saints, AJ Bell Stadium, Kick-Off: 5pm

What’s On?

Turnstiles open at 3pm. You can arrive any time after this and settle in for a bonfire night bash to remember when the Saints come marching in to the AJ Bell Stadium.
We’ve got Saturday night sorted this week with our resident DJ providing the gameday tunes in the stands, as well as 50% off all drinks in the concourse kiosks up to 45 minutes before kick-off! Get there early and don’t miss out.

The teams will arrive at the stadium from 3:30pm outside the West Stand reception, so make sure you’re there to give the players a big welcome as we roll out the blue carpet.

Sharks Saturday

Why not double up on Sharks rugby this weekend and catch the Sale Sharks Women’s Allianz Cup fixture against Exeter Chiefs absolutely FREE! You’ll pay nothing on the door, and that’s not all – we’re running a return shuttle bus from Heywood Rd to the AJ Bell Stadium so you can catch the men’s fixture straight after! The shuttle is running for £1.

Travel & Parking

Matchdays are always busy, so we advise everyone to plan their journeys and arrive at the AJ Bell Stadium in plenty of time before kick-off at 5pm.
All of our fans can now make use of the new Trafford Centre tram link, which provides great access to the stadium via our matchday ‘Shark & Ride’ shuttle buses which run from the bus stop just around the corner (£1 return). It’s a great way to make the most of your day as you can leave the car at home (or park there for FREE), take advantage of the Trafford Centre’s fantastic food options, and then head over to the AJ Bell!

There is still parking availability at the Makro car park, which is supported by a ‘park & ride’ shuttle bus to the stadium which is included in your parking costs. This must be pre-booked HERE.

Finally, if you’re travelling from Didsbury, Parrswood or Cheadle you can make use of the Stockport shuttle bus. This will run as follows: Mercian Way – East Didsbury at 3:20pm, Parrswood at 3:30pm, The Red Lion Cheadle at 3:40pm, and all pickups will be from the drop-off point 20 mins after the final whistle. This can be pre-booked HERE.


Club Shop

The Macron club shop will be open pre-match right up until kick-off. It’s getting chilly so why not keep warm with a Sharks beanie and scarf. Pop in to the store to grab yours!
