YORK City are calling for the help of their supporters to create a new crest to celebrate the club's centenary year next season.

The 2022/23 season will mark the club's 100th year and the Minstermen have decided to partner with football brand designer Christopher Payne to commemorate the occasion.

The new one-off crest will be worn on the players’ shirts for the 2022/2023 season, with a special commemorative kit to be released, and other celebrations to be scheduled over the course of the season.

City have asked for the input of its fans to "help guide the design of the centenary crest."

In order to do this, the club are asking for fans to complete a five-minute survey, a link for which can be found at: www.yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk

The survey incorporates several aspects relating to York City, including past badge designs, previous notable crest elements, preferred colours, favourite all-time memories of the club and former players and managers.

Media Officer Dan Simmonite said: “This is such an important time in the club’s history, and for me everything needs to be spot on in terms of design and execution.

"It’s a one-off moment which we need to make the most of.

“The first thing we want to do is involve the fans as this will then help us develop a badge which the supporters can be proud of and a badge which represents the football club and all its proud history.

“I’m excited to work alongside Christopher Payne, our Club Historian Paul Bowser, and most importantly the fans to create this one-off brand which will carry for the duration of the 2022/23 season.”
