Salford City’s Peninsula stadium will host it’s first ever international match this evening when the England C team take on their Welsh counterparts in a friendly.

The stadium has seen major redevelopment since the Class of 92 takeover and has now been deemed fit for purpose by the FA to host games of this magnitude.


The concept of ‘C’ teams involve picking players under the age of 23, who play in the National League or below, with the idea being to allow players who will most likely never reach a level to play at the top to experience a taste of international football and the pride of representing there country.

They often play games at Non-League grounds across the country and Salford will be hoping this is the first of many.

The game is almost exactly a year on from the first game at this level between the two as England ran out as 3-2 winners following a thrilling game at Jenner Park and supporters attending this evening will be hoping for more of the same.

The game gives Ammie’s supporters a look at the young talent across the non league board and could even produce a future Salford star.

Kick off is at 7:45 pm and tickets can be purchased on the gate for £5 for adults, £2 for concessions and free for under 5’s.
