Nothing new. This has been mentioned and shown on here many times in the last year.

It’s a shared stadium with the rugby club.

Hopefully keeps a Club like York City going for another 100 years.

Going to have a few lost balls on that rear sloping roof behind that goal, almost reminds me of Fred and his coracle at Gay Meadow back in the day.....

I believe it is owned by the local authority, too, as a community asset.

Got a bit confused there with the New York Stadium a la Rotherham. 😁
One is the New York stadium and the other is the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross for both York City Football Club and York City Knights RLFC.

if if wasn’t for Saint Matthew we would be playing in something like this. I wouldn’t mock too hard.
Maybe not even that.

Afaik, the local Council put a lot of money into this (several million quid?).

And while LBH was willing to accommodate BFC as best they could, this only went as far as good will and co-operation, not hard cash.

Looks full though.

York City suffered the attentions of property developers and asset strippers over the years and it is fortunate that they’re still around and a full time professional club albeit at national league north level. The new ground should give them a better base but it’s in an awful location on an out of town retail park. Better there than nowhere mind.

it is definitely a case if there but for the grace of god....,

I hope it goes well for them. We haven't crossed paths with York City for some time but the games with them in the 60s were tough affairs and their centre half, Barry Jackson, was a hate figure at GP much like Jack Howarth at Aldershot, and Fletcher at Bournemouth more recently.

What I remember of York City was their goalkeeper Tommy Forgan when they reached FA Cup Semi Final; in bygone days

I remember going to a really freezing cup game we won 0-1 with 10 men after our big black forward (not sure who it was then) being totally pole axed. When we left he was being carefully transferred into an ambulance behind the the main stand. I think Steve Hunt scored via a breakaway in the last 5 minutes. Remember being given mushy peas on my fish and chips to eat with my fingers. Very Messi......

Remember a game at York with Stephen Hunt scoring a last minute winner and celebrating by climbing the pitch side fencing. Bad tempered game and remember shouting cheat at the player who got Andy Frampton sent off with a dive. Checked teams and Mccammon got first in a 2-1 win.It was 2002.

That still qualifies as the coldest game I've ever been at. Busting for a pee in what was an open drain and unable to get my fingers to work to uncover all the layers I had on... nearly embarrassing.

I seem to remember a 1-0 win at York (1967?), league game, John Docherty cut in from the wing about 10 minutes in and scored a cracker. It was rather a while ago so I might have got that wrong.

This thread title, for someone reason, gives me a headache.

My brain immediately makes associations with all of the below and it confuses me:

New York City Stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_FC_stadium

New York Stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Stadium

The new York City stadium -https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/York_Community_Stadium

Sad to think that my favourite place for the past 60+ years, is now probably looking in the same desolate state - RIP Griffin Park.

Coldest game I've ever been at! A good friend of mine (from West London but Chelsea) moved up many years ago and lived in Bootham Terrace, so I would always go up and stay within whenever we played, so I still have a bit of interest in York City, as he went regularly.

Remember going to Bootham Crescent in 1971, the week after we lost to Hull in the Cup and drew 0-0. Chic Brodie came back in goal for the first time since the infamous dog incident at Colchester and played a blinder. Always had a soft spot for the old ground since then and sad to see it go. Great video though!

Dont know if ive said it here , that fa cup game at theirs about 15 years is up there as a classic away day.

We were sh*t in league 1, they were league 2. Both financially f***ed and desperate to go through in the hope of a big money draw.

It rained all day in the open away terrace. Drenched. We had a man sent off, first half i recall.
2nd half they were all over us, few minutes to go, Hunt is put through one on one & puts it away.
Mad celebrations.
f***ing love the fa cup.
Any who discredits it isnt a football fan.

Then we got a not so exciting cup draw next round, derby at home i think if i remember right.

That pic above of their new ground is sh*t. Looks awful.
Like morecambe, how can a club get a new stadium so wrong

It's not York City's stadium, it's the stadium in which they play.
So its the home of rugby club of which york city fc are tenants ?

It's owned and was developed by the City Council as a part of the York Stadium Leisure Complex. The stadium itself in used by YCFC and York City rugby league club.

Anymore to the story ?
from my vague memory it involved a lot of us climbing up the perimeter fence to the point where it started to come away. A mass brawl in the city centre with pub outdoor furniture being launched. The locals and tourists were mortified. No sign of Ken (or would have been Peter the Plod back then). Large bees turnout, coinciding with a stag weekend I recall.

What’s wrong with Morecambe’s new stadium? Decent terracing behind both goals, a state of the art main stand ... (And yes, I did like Christie Park)

Had a great day out. In the run up to Christmas. The pubs were all decorated and the local ladies very friendly.
