Visited with Leeds United. Food excellent, only lager (not beer) available. Reasonable prices. No designated seating so stood where we could find a space. Good view whenever you are stood. I thought the stewarding was very good, no fuss. First class programme available. Toilets were basic but fine. Handled the big match well, I thought. I came on a coach which parked just outside the away turnstiles, which was excellent. Very easy to find from the motorway.

Good atmosphere, although for a newly built stadium, the roof doesn't cover most of the people in the stands so,as it was raining, a lot of us got wet! The food looked great - I ordered meat and potato pie, chips and curry sauce...VERY disappointing - the pie certainly wasn't Hollands and was just full of potato whilst the curry sauce was the consistency of water and lacked taste...The game was good 👌

Great atmosphere in a very intimate setting. Great way to feel close to the action. Tickets, food and drink are very reasonable and the club has a very strong family and community focus.

A very nice stadium. You're really close to action no matter where you are. Parking was fine, just get there early to ensure you can get none permit street parking outside the ground. The on site bar was fairly priced and the food stores were very nice and cheap. Highly recommend! even as a neutral was made to feel welcome 🙂

Nice small ground with very good view to the pitch. As it is so small you can feel the intensity of the game. Lower division, but therefore nicer! Plus the chance to meet some Man. Utd heroes from the 90's!

History (from Wikipedia)

Moor Lane, currently known as the Peninsula Stadium for sponsorship purposes, is a football stadium in Kersal, Salford, Greater Manchester, England.

Salford City moved to Moor Lane in 1978,[4] but the stadium had been a venue for other sports for many years prior to that date.

[5] Planning permission was subsequently given on 15 December 2016.[5]

On 19 October 2017, the newly-renovated stadium was reopened by 
Sir Alex Ferguson, and it was revealed that the club had agreed to a partnership with Peninsula Business Services as sponsors, with the ground to be renamed Peninsula Stadium.[6]

The record attendance at the ground is 4,518 on 13 August 2019, for a 3–0 loss to 
Leeds United in the EFL Cup first round.[3]
