Sale FC Rugby Club take on two new hires as hospitality demand rockets

Sale FC Rugby Club has expanded its dedicated hospitality team, as demand for their three new event spaces soars. The club, which is based on Heywood Road in Sale, has three rooms available to hire. An uptake from businesses looking for meeting, conference or awayday facilities has grown so much over the last 12 months they have brought in two new full-time staff to keep up with demand. Nicola Hulme has been named Operations Coordinator, while Aidan Giblett takes on the role of Marketing and PR Assistant. Both will work alongside Functions and Events Manager, Brad McBride. Brad said: “We have experienced unprecedented demand for our function rooms thanks to our enviable location, great transport links and accessibility. What’s more, we have a dedicated hospitality team who ensure every need is catered for. Sale FC has invested considerably to ensure our three event spaces exceed expectations, whether you want to host a small gathering, a business conference or even a wedding.”

Sale FC Rugby Club has three spaces available to hire: The Executive Suite, The Smithy Bar and The Suite@Sale. All are tastefully decorated to ensure they meet clients’ expectations; whether you want to facilitate the business community or host a landmark celebration. The Executive Suite is ideal for those looking to host an intimate gathering of up to 30 people, The Smithy Bar is a great setting for up to 150 Theatre style (or 100 in a less formal arrangement), while The Suite@Sale is the club’s signature venue overlooking the club’s historic ground with facilities for up to 200. Brad said: “Versatility is key. Each of our suites each have something different to offer and thanks to our dedicated hospitality team, we can ensure that whether you want a smart set-up for a prestigious conference or a fairytale wedding venue, our space will deliver.”

The spaces are used regularly by a wide-range of businesses. One of them, Women in Business Trafford – an organisation which supports and mentors women who run their own businesses – hold regular courses and training days at the ground. Val Holmes, Business Adviser at Women in Business, said: “The space is perfect for us. It is centrally located which means women from across Trafford can easily access our services. Plus, the team at Sale FC are extremely flexible to ensure the room matches our requirements, which can change month on month depending on our planned activity.”

The hospitality team work with a small selection of hand-picked suppliers to ensure every need is catered for. What’s more, it boasts excellent transport links, with Manchester Airport and Greater Manchester’s motorway network just a few minutes away by car. The club is also located close to Manchester city centre and is well-served by public transport, with a Metrolink stop within walking distance.
