YORK City FC fans can own a piece of history from Bootham Crescent, with everything going up for sale at the ground ahead of the club’s move to the LNER Community Stadium.

The club is inviting supporters to register their interest in buying items from Bootham Crescent for when it moves to the new stadium at Monks Cross.

The club has issued a statement saying: “Arrangements are currently being made which will see us vacate Bootham Crescent once test events and health and safety checks have passed at the new LNER Community Stadium.

“Therefore, we would like to offer all supporters a chance to have their own piece of history from the old stadium. This can be anything from a sign, seat, turnstile or even the floodlights – everything will be up for sale at the ground.”

Anyone who would like to register an interest in any item are asked to write to the club, or email enquiries@yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk with the reference: ‘Bootham Crescent Sale’.

The club added that it is making plans to mark its move from Bootham Crescent with a special edition pin badge that is set to go on sale, City fan memories videos and a final edition matchday programme which will be sold on the last game at Bootham Crescent.

The opening date for the Community Stadium has still yet to be confirmed. The club said more plans regarding the move will be released in due course.

A spokesperson for the club said: "We are still waiting on the construction of the stadium to be complete by the builders - we were previously advised that this would be complete by the end of 2019.

"The Stadium Management Company have test events pencilled in throughout January, but these can only be confirmed once the construction is complete and they will be subject to change depending on how long construction will take.

"We will likely have a better idea of our move in date once the test events have been confirmed. The test events will include a dinner, local junior league tournament and a training event/open day. Dates, timings and more information will be communicated when we have them.

"Once these are complete and health and safety is signed off we will look to move from Bootham Crescent to the new stadium."

The ground will host games of both York City FC and York City Knights RLFC.

On February 9, the York City Knights are scheduled to host Bradford Bulls at the Community Stadium for their first home game of the 2020 Betfred Championship season.
