YORK City Supporters' Trust has set up matchday partnerships with the Huntington Sports & Social Club and travel partner Getaway Cars.

Following feedback from fans, the Trust reported that the lack of a social club at the LNER Community Stadium will impact the matchday experience for many fans.

The Trust explored various options in the local area and came up with a partner which also has strong connections to the grassroots game.

Open from noon on matchdays, the Huntington club offers two bars, outdoor seating areas, multiple TV screens showing live football, on-site parking and member beer prices from £3 per pint.

The Trust has also negotiated a special membership package for £5 to December 31, 2021. This membership entitles holders to reduced price drinks and access to the club on non-matchdays.

A spokesperson added: "Thanks to the reduced price drinks, we expect that most fans will recoup their membership after just one or two visits.

"Membership prices for 2022 will be announced soon but are expected to offer similar value for money."

Fans can order their membership online at ycst.org.uk/social-club/. If ordered before August 7, the membership card will be available to collect from the bar on the day of the season-opening Kidderminster Harriers game (August 14).

Alternatively, fans can purchase the membership card over the bar and collect on the next visit.
