Salford City Reds are a professional rugby league club based in Salford, England who play in the Super League.

Their nickname is 'The Red Devils'. This name was later copied by nearby Manchester United F.C. so they are also known as 'The Original Red Devils'. The name the Red Devils comes from a 1934 tour to France where the press described them as playing like devils, thus the name Les Diables Rouges.

Their home ground, The Willows, is in the Weaste suburb of Salford. The club is set to move to a new 15,000 capacity City of Salford Stadium in Barton-upon-Irwell in time for the 2012 season. Their traditional rivals Swinton will share The Willows in the 2011 season.

On 22 July 2008, the RFL awarded Salford a Super League licence for the 2009–2011 seasons.
