MONKS Cross Shopping Park will be York City's new back-of-the-shirt sponsors for the 2018/19 season.

The name will be displayed on City's new Under Armour first-team strip, as the team complete their final season at Bootham Crescent before relocating to the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross.

Commenting on the ideal timing of the partnership, Katherine Sharp, the centre manager for Monks Cross Shopping Park, said: "As we move into the first phase of a new period for Monks Cross, strengthening bonds with our soon-to-be neighbour was of key importance to us.

"We look forward to seeing the new stadium continue to take shape, alongside the exciting developments at Monks Cross."

Nick Greatrex, City's Head of Partnerships, added: "We are really pleased to welcome Monks Cross Shopping Park as a club partner. We now look forward to working together closely during our emotional final season at Bootham Crescent and also in the future at our new home in the community stadium at Monks Cross."
