YORK City Ladies will return to the LNER Community Stadium for the fourth time next month, as the Minsterbelles host Leeds United Women on Wednesday, September 6 (7.45pm).

The Minsterbelles will be returning to the LNER Community Stadium for the fourth occasion after hosting three matches there last season, with Leeds United Women the visitors in the FA Women’s National League Division One North.

York kicked off their 2023/24 season last Sunday, suffering a 4-3 defeat to Hull City Ladies, before celebrating the incredible achievement by the Lionesses to reach the Women's World Cup final.

And now the Minsterbelles will be back plying their trade at the home of York City and the York Knights, with the Ladies anticipating a large crowd.

Chairperson Paula Stainton was delighted with the news, telling the club website: “We are over the moon to be able to announce that York City Ladies will be playing a number of selected fixtures at the (LNER) Community Stadium again this year,”

“We’re delighted to build on the success of the games we held here last season and to have the opportunity to utilise the Lionesses’ legacy as a platform to continue to grow our engagement in the community.

“These games at the LNER are an ideal way to introduce young people to become fans within the female game with free tickets for all children aged under eleven and in the comfort of our wonderful community stadium.

“Last season we achieved an outstanding crowd of over 2,300 against Leeds, which included lots of children from local grassroots teams within the City.

"It would be great to see so many of you down again at the stadium cheering on the Belles.”
