YORK City boardroom members Ian McAndrew and Dave Penney have responded to fan concerns about seat selection at the Community Stadium.

Season ticket holders will be able to pick their seats at the Community Stadium, but there is a chance they would be picking them sight-unseen from a plan rather than being able to visit the ground in person.

In the summer, season ticket holders will also have the first choice to move seats ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

At Wednesday night's fans' forum, it was asked whether there would be an open day, while another idea was for season ticket holders to be able to access all areas of the ground for the rest of the season to decide their preferred spot.

The Community Stadium is a council-led scheme with a number of partners and much of the uncertainty surrounding the project appears to come from the number of companies with control over different aspects.

McAndrew said: "We don't know whether there will be a chance for an open day.

"It depends how quickly it comes on us for matches.

"We're at the stage now where once it's completed - it's out of our hands, it's a council scheme - it's going to be a fairly quick process (moving in).

"We'll have to wait and see. We'll try all we can to give everybody as much notice as possible."

Penney added of the access-all-areas idea: "We'll have to ask the ticketing people, the SMC (Stadium Management Company) and GLL (Greenwich Leisure Limited) how that works.

"We can ask the question.

"I think, as well, if you sit down this season and you're not happy with it, you can move during the summer."

The proposal that gained the most tangible traction was that people going to test events - currently scheduled for January 15, 19 and 26 - could survey their seating options then.

Responding to a fan asking about going to the ground on January 19, when a junior football day is scheduled to be held in front of 2000 people, Penney said: "Yes, you can come.

"I'm not sure you'll be able to (buy your ticket) on that particular day but you can come to the stadium."
