AWAY DAY GUIDE | Salford City

All the information you’ll need to know if you’re headed to the Peninsula Stadium

2 February 2024

The Red Dragons are back on the road this weekend, as they return to Sky Bet League Two action to take on Salford City.

Phil Parkinson’s side bowed out of the Emirates FA Cup at the Fourth Round stage, having succumbed to Championship opposition in Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Monday.

This weekend provides Wrexham a chance to further strengthen their position in the promotion places, with the Red Dragons currently holding a game in hand on Stockport County and Mansfield Town.

Ahead of the match, we look at all the information you’ll need if you’re set to attend the fixture.

If you can't make it Saturday, as the fixture falls inside the Article 48 window, UK supporters can only access live commentary on iFollow Wrexham for this match.

However, for our overseas fans, there are both live video and audio streaming options available.

How To Get There: Peninsula Stadium (M7 3PZ)

Salford City’s stadium is situated at Moor Lane, Salford, M7 3PZ.

Away supporters are situated across the East Stand Terrace and North Stand, therefore supporters should take note of the entry point on their ticket.

All turnstiles open at 1:30pm on Saturday.

Official Supporter Travel 

For those who are travelling on our official supporter travel, the buses will depart Mold Road at midday, and there will be no provisions for those who arrive late.

Supporters must make note of their designated coach on the ticket and only board the coach they’ve been allocated to.

All under-14s must be accompanied on official supporter travel, and alcohol is strictly prohibited by law.

If you’re travelling by car 

If you’re travelling from the STōK Cae Ras, then follow the A483 towards Chester until you reach the Wrexham Road interchange. At the roundabout, you will need to take the third exit onto the A55 slip road towards the M53.

After 5 miles, you will continue onto the M53 towards the M56. Take the exit at Junction 11 towards Manchester, where you will continue on the road from 17 miles.

After 5 miles, keep right to merge onto the M6, where you will remain for a further nine miles until Junction 21A, when you should exit onto the M62.

Ticket Collections

Salford City have very kindly offered a collection facility for our supporters from the Peninsula Stadium; however, this should only be used as a last resort.

To avoid lengthy queues on the day of the game and ensure that you can make it into the stadium for kick-off, we strongly advise fans to collect from the STōK Cae Ras in advance.

Tickets can be collected from the STōK Cae Ras, where you will have to provide proof of purchase through your booking reference. We cannot accept postcodes or any other information for collections.

Should anyone wish to collect on behalf of another supporter, as outlined above a booking reference will be required.

Tickets cannot be collected from 90 minutes before kick-off on a Wrexham AFC home matchday.

All uncollected tickets will be taken to the Peninsula Stadium, but the deadline for reprints has now passed.

Supporters without a ticket

While we appreciate our fans wish to support the team, we urge supporters without a ticket to not attend the game or travel.

In addition to this, any Wrexham supporter found to be in possession of a ticket in the home end will be refused entry and ejected from the venue immediately, without refund.

Away Pubs

There are no designated away pubs for this fixture.

Supporter Conduct 

Wrexham AFC wishes to remind supporters of the potential safety implications and consequences that may occur as a result of pitch incursions and other illegal and unacceptable behaviour.

As previously communicated, supporters who encroach on the pitch risk facing a Football Banning Order as well as a criminal conviction, while the Club itself could also face a fine for these actions.

There may also be other implications for the Club, including restrictions on future away ticket allocations. This is due to potential safety measures the home Club are required to put in place which impacts on the availability of seating.

The Club understands the emotion and passion that comes with attending the match as a fan but must reiterate that the safety of players, managers and supporters on both sides remains our priority.

The vast majority of fans have – and continue to – support the Club in an appropriate manner and are a credit to Wrexham AFC, but we will seek the strongest possible punishment for those who enter the field of play or engage in any other unacceptable behaviour.

As in line with the FA initiative, Wrexham AFC fully support the ‘Love Football Protect the Game’ program.

Wrexham AFC support the new measures that have been implemented to both improve participant and fan behaviour across the board.

Wrexham AFC operates a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination of any kind, and supporters are encouraged to come forward and report any incidents it to the nearest steward, the Club, or Kick it Out.
