The 21-22 season finale is here, and we’re all set for one last dance at the AJ Bell. Everything you need to know for our final runout against Bristol Bears is below.
Sale Sharks v Bristol Bears, Saturday 4th June, AJ Bell Stadium, Kick-Off: 3pm
- Turnstiles open at 1:30pm.
- Players arriving at 1:45pm.
- Kick-off at 3pm.
The gameday atmosphere will be brought to you by DJ Jay, and AO will be there with a ton of freebies, so make sure you keep an eye out for their smile makers. As an added bonus, we’ve got a triple threat of Sharks in the Ruck Truck, this week. Sam Hill, Josh Beaumont and Sam Dugdale will all be there, outside the club shop for autographs and selfies.
To celebrate the Sharks who will be leaving us at the end of the season we’ve put together an ‘End Of Season Scrapbook’. We’ll be handing these out around the ground and in hospitality before kick-off so you can get them signed before the lads leave for summer.
Finally, don’t forget to hang around after the final whistle as the team always make time for the fans post-match. It’s your last chance before the summer break to get those autographs and selfies.
Travel & Parking
Make sure you plan your journeys and arrive at the AJ Bell stadium in plenty of time before kick-off.
All of our fans can make use of the Trafford Centre tram link, which provides great access to the stadium via our matchday ‘Dine & Ride’ shuttle buses which run from the bus stop just around the corner (£1 return, up to 3 hours post-match). 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! You can pre-book this HERE.
Please note: We advise all supporters to park at the Regent Crescent car park 3 for any matchday parking.
There is 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 (running for up to 3 hours post-match). 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 1:20pm, Parrswood at 1:30pm, The Red Lion Cheadle at 1:40pm, and all pickups will be from the drop-off point 20 mins after the final whistle. This can be pre-booked HERE.
The Macron club shop will be open pre-match right up until kick-off, as well as post-match. The end of season sale is here, and with up to 50% off selected items; it’s never been a better time to grab some Sharks stash for summer.
