In Pictures: A new advert on Metrolink 3116

The new vinyl wraps on Manchester Metrolink keep on coming – the latest to be noted out in service is on 3116 with a colourful advert for Sale Sharks (Rugby Union club) having been applied during August.

3116 had previously been carrying standard fleet livery before the application of this advert although it isn’t its first advert. This was for Cheshire Oaks Outlet between May and September 2019.

The design uses different slogans on each side. On one side it features “Red to Blue everyone’s a shark” and is part of a new advertising campaign ahead of the new rugby union season. Obviously the shades of blue and red have been chosen to match the colours of a certain two football teams in the area and we’re not talking about Oldham and Altrincham!

Meanwhile, the other side states “Fabric of the North” and “The only Rugby team to support in the north”.

Taken from a bus in Piccadilly Gardens this view shows the new advert on 3116. Interestingly on this day it was coupled with another adverted tram – 3087 with a design for Co-op. (Photograph by Lee Botham, 26th August 2022)
