Community stadium package to cost £37m

First published in News

MORE details have been revealed about the funding package behind the new Community Stadium plans for York.

The total cost of the Stadium and Leisure Complex - plus the replacement athletics track at Heslington West and rugby facilities at York St John - is £37 million.

Of that, the City of York Council will contribute £8million - £4million already committed for the replacement athletics track and the stadium - and an extra £4million for the newest version of the scheme which includes a new swimming pool which will need to be approved by council members.

The rest of the funds will come through a £12 million commercial investment, £15 million in developer contributions from the Vangarde site, which was completed earlier this year, and £2 million from York City FC and the Football Stadia Improvement Fund - a loan which has now been converted into a grant to help fund the club’s new home.

Vangarde Shopping Park, where new John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Next stores have just opened and whose developers have provided £13.75 million towards the sports project.

The Vangarde £13.75million, how has this been factored into the costings, where is the remaining £5.75million after the declared £8million council spend on behalf of residents?.

As there is no current press story involving the Knights I will put this here.
The Knights won Championship One yesterday without kicking a ball, yes you read that right, although a long shot Oldham could have won by winning their last two games by large points margins and York would have had to lose their last match, that Oldham lost yesterday handed the title to York.

Yes you are right there is not enough coverage for what had been a fantastic season for the Knights.Hopefully this new stadium can spur them on and catapult them into the Superleague.

Yes, very well done to York City Knights. It seems odd that the Champions face the prospect of not getting promoted whilst the team that finishes 5th can be promoted. Some Knights fans have been tweeting that the club will not receive any income generated by their match day activities which strikes me as being very unfair. Can someone who went to the York City event this afternoon please confirm whether or not these tweets are correct? Also, was anyone from the Knights there? Do the Knights have any plans to hold a similar event for supporters? Trying to get information about the Knights is proving almost impossible for we exiles.
