Opening of new York City stadium faces delay

York City stadium delayed

Tuesday 19th February 2019

York City Council have announced a delay to opening the new stadium which York City FC will be using.

This season (2018/2019) was due to be the club's last after 87 years at Bootham Crescent. However, construction delays have forced that date back, with the club now being forced to play the first few games next season at their old home.

Once completed, the new ground at Monks Cross to the north east of the city will be shared the York Knights rugby league club. It will have a capacity of 8,000.

No new opening date has been given.
