Bio: 

Founded in 1908, York had been mainstays of The Football League until as recently as 2004, when they were relegated out of the old Third Division to The Football Conference, ending 75 years of membership in the league. Since that point, the club have been promoted back to the fourth tier of English Football and then back to The National League North after a disastrous two years and successive relegations.

Despite the uncertainty off the pitch, the club are in a strong position for next season and are one of the favourites to go up behind Salford City. York have also recently announced a new 8,000 seater stadium to match their on-field aims. Managed by former Wrexham manager Gary Mills, City will be a side to look out for this season as they look to bounce back.

Ground:

York City currently play their home games at Bootham Crescent, an 8,200 capacity ground that includes a mixture of seating and standing. They have called the stadium home for almost 90 years. A relationship which looks set to end within the next two years as the club look to move to their newly constructed ground.

Tickets are currently priced at between £17 and £14 with under 18’s paying between £5/£6.
