Club reveals celebration plans

12th September 2018

York City Football Club is delighted to announce details of the special events which are being planned to mark the final season at Bootham Crescent.

The club, which has played at Bootham Crescent since 1932, is moving to the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross in summer 2019 and wants to give supporters every opportunity to celebrate the end of an era in style.

Events currently being finalised include a 'Season Finale Dinner and Awards Night' at the Park Inn, an 'End of an Era Banquet' on the Bootham Crescent pitch, a 'City Heroes Farewell Game', a 'Moving Home Auction' selling Bootham Crescent memorabilia, plus an opportunity for supporters of all ages and abilities to 'Play at the Crescent' before the gates are closed for the final time.

Awards will be presented by club officials and representatives from our various Supporters Club branches.
