YORK City have made 400 tickets in the North Stand available to home supporters for their Vanarama National League clash with Chesterfield at the LNER Community Stadium on Good Friday.

The news follows York City Supporters' Trust's #FillTheLNER campaign, urging fans to get behind the Minstermen amid their battle to avoid relegation.

Chesterfield, who earned their promotion back to the football league with a 3-0 victory against Boreham Wood last weekend, will undoubtedly prove tough opponents, but Adam Hinshelwood's side are firmly in the ascendancy.

The Minstermen earned back-to-back wins for the first time this season against Aldershot Town and Bromley, recording a pair of clean sheets in the process, to lift themselves to 19th position ahead of the Easter double-header.

Some 1,300 tickets remained in the South and East Stands when #FillTheLNER was launched on Monday lunchtime, but City supporters have responded in their droves to force the allocation of extra tickets.

A club statement this evening read: "Following supporters jumping on board with #FillTheLNER, the club have put 400 tickets on sale (to go live at 7.30pm) in the North Stand for home supporters against Chesterfield.

"The club would like to thank the SMC & CGC for their help in putting this in place at such short notice."

Chesterfield, who sold out their initial allocation of 1,500 tickets in less than an hour earlier this month, have been allocated the entirety of the West Stand for the fixture.

That was a decision that left fans angered - namely those forced to move from their West Stand season tickets - with the Supporters' Trust also urging the club to rethink the decision.

Friday's fixture is ticket only, priced as follows:

  • Adult: £22
  • Concession (60+): £17
  • Student: £10
  • Age 14-18: £10
  • Age 8-13: £7
  • Age 2-7: Free

Tickets are available to be purchased online here, over the phone on 01904 950950, or in-person from the LNER Community Stadium.

Currently, the Minstermen’s record attendance at the LNER Community Stadium is 7,488, set during their Vanarama National League North play-off final victory against Boston United in May 2022.

Their highest home attendance this season was set against Wigan Athletic in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup in December, with 6,613 fans watching on as City fell to a 1-0 defeat.
