YORK City have confirmed their intention to host farewell activities to see off Bootham Crescent.

The Minstermen played their last game at their ground of almost 89 years on December 28 last year but have not had an opportunity to bid a proper farewell to the iconic stadium due to the ongoing pandemic.

In an update to fans, York con-firmed they will be hosting a play-on-the-pitch charity match, as well as running a raffle for two fans to take part in the final floodlight switch-on, scheduled for the last week in April.

Further details are in the pipeline.

As part of the ground's legacy plans, the club will be submitting six place names for the site, to be considered by City of York Council. The club plans to involve supporters in the decision-making and draw up a shortlist.

To respond to unanswered questions about the LNER Community Stadium move, the club has set up an FAQs page at yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk/club/faqs.

Ticketing details are on the way. However, fans can now enquire about planned events and hospitality packages at commercial@yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk.
