Do you want to own a piece of sporting history?

As York City FC prepare to move into the purpose-built LNER Community Stadium, it is getting ready to sell off Bootham Crescent fixtures and fittings.

A statement on the club website says:

  • Arrangements are currently being made which will see us vacate Bootham Crescent once test events and health and safety checks have passed at the new LNER Community Stadium.

    Therefore, we would like to offer all supporters a chance to have their own piece of history from the old stadium.

    This can be anything from a sign, seat, turnstile or even the floodlights – everything will be up for sale at the ground.

If you would like to register an interest in any item email [email protected] with the reference: ‘Bootham Crescent Sale’.

More souvenirs

The club is planning to mark the move from Bootham Crescent with

  • a special edition pin badge set
  • City fan memories videos
  • and a final edition matchday programme which will be sold on the last game at Bootham Crescent.

It says more of the plans surrounding the move will be released ‘in due course’.
