14th April is Green Day!

03 April 2024

Marathon date but Lions as usual!

Our home game versus Sheffield Eagles on Sunday 14 April clashes with the Manchester Marathon , but the match will go ahead as scheduled at 3pm.

With nearby main thoroughfares Marsland Road and Brooklands Road not accessible, this clearly impacts on access routes to the stadium.

Street parking in the vicinity of the ground will still be available subject to availability by taking the following route :- starting from M60 Junction 6 near Sale Water Park; go south on Old Hall Road; turn left at Wythenshawe Road; turn left at Northenden Road; turn right at Norris Road (continue for 1.4 miles); turn right at Alcester Road. This brings you out opposite Whitehall Road gate.

Pedestrian access to the ground will be available at both the Heywood Road and Whitehall Road gates. There will be no parking whatsoever via Heywood Road , and extremely limited disabled parking via the Whitehall Road entrance (via confirmation from the club only).

A limited hospitality offer will be available – for more information please contact the club directly via [email protected] , but note that this does not include onsite parking.

Given the difficult circumstances we hope that supporters will bear with us and support the Lions on the day .

In the meantime we are taking this opportunity to promote environmentally friendly matchday travel , and Sunday 14th will be a Green Day!

* Travel by Metro Tram (Brooklands station is 5 minutes walk from the ground). From Swinton, take the bus to St Peter’s Square Metro stop and get the tram from there towards Altrincham.
* Car share with fellow fans.
* If it’s walkable – walk it!
* Consider other forms of shared transport.

The Lions will wear our green alternative colours on the day , and replica green away shirts will be on sale (on the ground only) at specially discounted prices.
