New stadium steelwork on the rise

By Ian Appleyard | 7th June 2018

THE COUNTDOWN is on....there are just under 14 months to go before the scheduled opening of the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross.

Things have progressed quickly since diggers first moved onto the site of the City of York Council's new leisure complex just six months ago.

Once complete, the new 8,000 all-seater Community Stadium will play home to both York City Football Club and York City Knights Rugby League Club.

The leisure facilities will include a swimming pool, gym, dance studio, indoor and outdoor climbing facilities, and a sports hall with spectator seating.

The commercial developments will include a cinema complex with IMAX screen, five restaurants, and various retail units.

Steelwork for the stadium's East Stand is now taking shape and in-situ concrete works are also underway. These works will create the lower terracing seating, dug-outs, and tunnels that will provide access to the stadium for both spectators and players. Work has also started on the foundations for the West Stand.
