Moor Lane – stadium description
The ground lies 4km north of Manchester city center but belongs to a different city. Moor Lane owes its name to the road running along its northern side. The main stand currently lies in the south, though, along Nevile Road, along with makeshift player facilities.
Interestingly, the stand and its roof (raised in 1980) are built with reinforced concrete, a rare material in the United Kingdom, where most stadia have stands built primarily with steel. Since 1989 the stadium also offers floodlighting, though only for match purposes, not enough for TV broadcast.
In late 2016 preparations for complete reconstruction began. By mid 2017 three new stands were built, leaving only the main grandstand awaiting for construction.
Unique stadium swap could happen in Salford
Two stadiums, three teams, one goal: exchanging stadiums in order to suit their potential. Salford City are outgrowing their ground, while the rugby AJ Bell Stadium has proven excessive. Now, a swap is supposedly being finalised.
England: See what Salford City are building in less than a year
In January there was no piece of their new stadium. Now they already have three out of four stands. By year end Salford City should have all of their reinvented Moor Lane.
