Rugbydon, with the congestion being as bad as it is already (with 3,500 attending Reds games),lets say the extra 3000 Sale supporters currently attending our matches might need bussing in.
50 per bus gives you a regular requirement of 60 coaches on a matchday. Shuttling from numerous locations including the Trafford centre, EP, local train stations.
Some might say this is an over estimation, but have they reflected that some matches might even attract significantly more than 6-7000 attendees? If match at Barton were to ever attract 10-12,000 what sort of unmitigated disaster would ensue unless public transport was sorted for at least half of those attending?
Anyone thought where these coaches/buses will come from?
I would suggest that that number are simply not available on any week-end during the rugby and footy seasons.
IMHO Sale will not be able to address such issues.
Most will end up walking 1-2 miles to the stadium.
Better get fit everybody!...and arrange to add an extra hour or so to your travel times.
