YORK City have launched a Volunteers programme to "bring together a group of people to help and support the club".

The club aims to recognise and thank volunteers for the work they have done, and welcome more people to the fold.

Matchday roles include selling programmes, greeting visitors and providing information to fans, putting the YCFC Volunteers "at the forefront of matchday operations", the club says.

In return, City hope to give volunteers special opportunities such as club shop discount, early access to event tickets, awards and development opportunities.

"For many years, volunteers have worked tirelessly at York City Football Club, giving up their time to helping to keep the club running," a club statement reads.

"Now, we want to thank them and shine a light on this important part of club operations while also welcoming more people to join in.

"So we’re launching York City Football Club Volunteers, a programme which will bring together a group of people to help and support the club.

"We’re on the lookout for positive, self-motivated and friendly people to join the newly launched YCFC Volunteers and be part of the club in a special way.

"We can’t wait to welcome them to the team.

"Volunteering is known to provide great personal benefits to those who get involved such as boosting confidence, making friends, being part of a team, learning new skills, boosting your CV and can also help to improve physical and mental health.

"During Covid restrictions, we currently need fewer volunteers than usual on matchdays.

"However ,we would like to create a team of volunteers who are ready to start when fans are allowed back into the stadium."
