THE LNER Community Stadium will have a limited capacity for York City's play-off final on Saturday (3pm) following the crowd trouble seen at the ground last week.

York overcame Chorley 2-1 in Wednesday's Vanarama National League North play-off eliminator but the match was marred by what the club described as "disgraceful scenes" at the Monks Cross ground.

Seating in the South Stand was damaged, flares were thrown between the two sets of supporters and fans invaded the pitch before full time.

As a result, the number of away tickets for York's semi-final clash with Brackley Town - which they won 1-0 - was restricted and the same will apply to this weekend's final against Boston United.

A York City statement read: "We would like to make supporters aware that after a meeting with the York Safety Advisory Group (SAG), which comprises of the City of York Council and Fire, Police and Ambulance services, we have unfortunately been restricted to (a) 7,500 capacity due to the damage to the stadium, pyrotechnics and pitch encroachment on Wednesday night."

The SAG have stated that North Yorkshire Police will be at the ground and that "any pitch encroachment either during or after the game will result in arrest."

Detection dogs will also be present inside and outside the stadium.

Some areas of seating, including the front rows of the stands, will be sectioned off and not available to sit in. The club's fanzone will also be segregated.

Allocated seating has been introduced to the South Stand and all tickets must be purchased in advance.

Season ticket holders have a priority window which closes at 5pm tomorrow, when the general sale begins.

Ticket prices have been set by the National League at £20 for adults, £15 for concessions, £7 for under-16s and free for under-5s.
