Club Announcement: New Men’s Adult Rugby Team – Sale FC Vikings

The RFU has recently announced that the lower XV teams of clubs (i.e., non 1st teams) will be allowed to enter them into the RFU league structure at level 10 as of the 2022-23 season. This will see lower XV teams, being allowed to play in the RFU league structure and gain promotion up to level 7 maximum.

In preparation of entering such a team into the league structure for the start of the 2022-23 season, Sale FC Rugby will be creating a new adult men’s XV team, which will look to play friendly games during the 2021-22 season.

Historically, we had such teams namely ‘Sale FC Vikings’ and we are looking to possibly revive this name. We see the creation of this team as being an important pathway to adult rugby for our Colts to transition into within the Club, as well as an opportunity to attract more local based adult rugby players to the club.

We will be looking to make further announcements regarding pre-season, training etc in due course.

Who benefits from the crowdfunding?

We’ve recently been fundraising for our renovations at our Carrington Training Centre. The benefits of this redevelopment are massive. If you look at our current Colts squad, many of those boys have been training with us since they were 5 years old! We want to make sure that when your 5 year old gets to 16/17/18 they can benefit from the best facilities in the North West. If you want to donate or get one of our brilliant rewards, then just click the link above or on the website.

Obviously not just boys play rugby and our Sale 1861 team are a testament to that. Tomorrow we’ll have a chat with them and find out what they think of the development at the training ground.



Want to try a new sport? Improve your fitness? Perhaps you’re a returning player wanting to lace up your boots. Whatever your reason there’s a position for everyone.

Join us tomorrow night for our skills session- no experience needed!
