Club Statement: LNER Community Stadium
York City Knights will monitor and ask questions of GLL (Greenwich Leisure Ltd) and our council landlords over the next 72hrs and make a decision on the Betfred Championship Round 2 fixture against Bradford Bulls based on the quality of information received.
As a club, we feel fans and partners need clarity this close to a fixture and we need to begin the logistics of marketing, hospitality, travel, parking and much more. Bootham Crescent has wonderful memories for both Bradford Bulls and York fans.
We are confident that whether this fixture is the opening of the LNER Community Stadium or our opening home league game at Bootham Crescent, fans will understand the clubs predicament and make it a wonderful event on February 9th.
Be assured that this decision will be undertaken for the benefit of all our passionate fans, supportive partners and our excellent coaching and playing staff.
