← Back to projects

The design and masterplan of this prominent new build venue. The AJ Bell Stadium is the home of the Salford Red Devils Rugby League Football Club and the Sale Sharks Rugby Union Football Club.

Designed for versatility, the stadium is also UEFA compliant, hosting an England women's Euro 2013 qualifying match and being the home to Manchester United’s under-21’s team.

The stadium masterplan has been crafted with the future in mind.

The initial phase delivered 12,000 seats, with the potential to expand to 20,000. This opportunity considers the growth of the host clubs, creating an aspirational, future-proofed space to compete within.

Within the Pavilion Stand, we have created accommodation for the community, club functions, conferences, and banqueting for up to 750 people.

Located alongside the Barton Bridge flyover, the location provided a unique design opportunity: to give passersby a glimpse into the stadium.

Establishing the west stand as the focal point, the remaining three stands are of dropped elevation. This creates a powerful visual effect with the two sides at opposition to each other in colour, height, and composition.
