MATCHDAY INFO – Newcastle Falcons

We are back under the Friday night lights at the AJ Bell this week! Here’s everything you need to know ahead of kick-off this Friday evening (Nov 19), as we welcome our fellow Northerners, Newcastle Falcons.

Sale Sharks v Newcastle Falcons, AJ Bell Stadium, Kick-Off: 7:45pm

What’s On?

Turnstiles open at 6:15pm. You can arrive any time after this and get settled in for some Friday night rugby!

The gameday atmosphere will be provided by our live band, ‘Twisted Tubes’, pre-match in front of the stadium, and there’s a whole host of food options for you to pick from including classic burgers, hot donuts & woodfired pizza.

The teams will arrive at the stadium from 6:30pm 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.

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 7:45pm.
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 6pm, Parrswood at 6.10pm, The Red Lion Cheadle at 6.20pm, 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 a great opportunity to sort out those Christmas gifts for your Sharks family. Any purchases made between now and Christmas can be returned up to the 22nd of January.
