Hospitality proves to be a winner for pre-season

2nd August 2021

York City’s matchday hospitality has been a huge hit, with over 800 hospitality guests welcomed to the new-look matchday experiences for our pre-season triple-header at the LNER Community Stadium.

Ex-YCFC striker Iain Dunn hosted the Lounge Experience and the Jorvik Bar alongside special guest appearances from Andy Leaning and ex-Premier League referee Jeff Winter, while all six Executive Boxes and a number of Matchday Sponsorships were quickly snapped up within days of going on-sale in June.

Speaking on the rave reviews the club has received on the quality of the matchday experience, Liam McGuinness, the club’s Commercial Manager said: “We’ve been blown away with the level of feedback we’ve received. We were using the three pre-season matches as an opportunity to assess whether our proposed hospitality offerings were right moving forward, and we know now that they absolutely are!

“Naturally with anything new, we are tweaking a couple of things ahead of the start of the league season. The Jorvik Bar, which sold-out within hours of going on-sale, will now be based in the LNER Lounge and will allow up to 200 of our supporters to upgrade on either a seasonal or match-by-match basis to a relaxed, bar environment including complimentary matchday programme, teamsheet and padded seats in the centre of the Azuma Stand.

“Our exceptional three-course dining experience will be available for between 80-100 guests, while our Executive Boxes can be snapped up on a bar-only basis with the option to add catering, if desired.

“What we have is absolutely first-class and we want to welcome you, your business, your clients, your family and your friends to join us to watch City in style this season. We’re going to be working tirelessly to make your matchday hospitality experience one to remember so please join us!”

The hospitality staff were excellent and the padded seats allocated in the centre of the Azuma Stand were great and comfortable. I will be upgrading to the LNER Bar for the full season. £5 per game is a bargain!


All of our guests had a fabulous night. The stadium is impressive and your team on and off the pitch are doing YCFC proud. Parking was very easy with a nice, efficient, friendly welcome on-arrival. Drink orders were taken promptly and the Magician got our group laughing and settled, a great touch! 10/10 for all of us! A cracking night and fabulous atmosphere!


I would like to give the whole team behind-the-scenes a big personal shout out for doing an awesome job! I would highly recommend hospitality for family days out & corporate entertainment! You’re in safe hands with Liam and his team - super professional! Great music, amazing food, superb stadium!


I’m just writing to express my thanks to everyone involved for making the day such an enjoyable occasion - and a deserved result!


We thought it was excellent. For us, it was smooth from arrival to departure. Waiting staff were on it, food was good and access was great. Very well done!


Thank you to you and the team for a wonderful day yesterday. The lunch, service and atmosphere was fantastic and great value for money. The quality of the food was fantastic and my whole party had a great afternoon and went away with big smiles on our faces. Well done! Wishing you and the team all the best for the season ahead. If the team continue to play as well as they did yesterday, I'm sure it won't be long before they get back to playing the League football that the stadium deserves!


Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, especially the result!


Thanks for a fantastic day! The stadium is spectacular and your hospitality was 10/10, couldn’t fault anything!


Thank you for today, me and my grandson had a great day!


Today was brilliant for us all! The venue was superb, the service and food excellent and served by a well organised team and a great game and result to finish it off. I think everyone who worked behind the scenes needs to be congratulated as it all went so well. A great day, well organised. Thanks to all at YCFC!
