The Future of York City Football Club
The new York Community Stadium will provide a new home for both of York's professional sports teams, York City Football Club and York City Knights RLFC.
It will also provide facilities and opportunities for the wider community which will be intrinsically linked to improving the Health & Wellbeing of the City's residents. These will build upon the leisure provision at the Huntington Stadium site which currently includes the existing swimming pool and gym.
A new community hub building will include new facilities such as an Explore Learning centre which hopes to include distinct features linked to the site, such as a sports themed archive facility.
The scheme will also be home to facilities run by the York St John Institute for Sport and Wellbeing and outpatient & clinic facilities for the York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. It will also include a new Independent Living Assessment Centre and associated retail offering, the first of its kind in the area.
The area surrounding the new Community Stadium offers further opportunities for the inclusion of leisure and community facilities and retail development.
A new community county standard athletics will also be provided, at another location within the City, to provide new home for City of York Athletics Club.
