Salford’s new multimillion-pound Youth Zone is partnering up with the Salford Red Devils to provide more sporting opportunities for young people.

The youth zone, under construction in Pendleton, has already secured £7.6 million from the government’s youth investment fund and is building a network of partnerships across the city.

The project has also benefited from investment from Salford’s BetFred owner Fred Done who has put £6 million towards the project.

The youth zone will be located in Pendleton next to Belvedere Road and Broadwalk.

Salford Red Devils have promised to provide the youth zone with complimentary tickets to games at the community stadium as well as working with families in the East Manchester area to provide more sporting opportunities.

Salford Red Devils said:  “This partnership symbolises a resolute commitment to leveraging the power of sport and community engagement to drive positive change.

“Together, Salford Red Devils, Hideout Youth Zone, Salford Youth Zone, and Fred Done are poised to redefine the landscape of social impact locally and empower the youth of Salford and East Manchester.”

The new facility is set to provide support and invaluable resources for young people in the city of Salford including those with special needs seven days a week and is scheduled to open in 2025.

Adam Farricker, the CEO of Empower, said: “This partnership marks a significant milestone in our collective efforts to empower young people and transform communities.

“By joining forces with Salford Red Devils, we are amplifying our impact and creating pathways to success for the youth of Manchester and Salford.”
