10,000 capacity is a minimum requirement for super league clubs.

Perhaps if the designers show a bit of flair they coul build a stand with removable seating, this way you would increase the crowd capacity if the
attendance warrants more space for standing room only.

Have a look at the Press website - as follows:

CONSTRUCTION of York’s new community stadium has been delayed, sparking an angry reaction from York City Knights.
Building work on the new Monks Cross stadium which will be home to York City FC and York City Knights rugby league club was due to begin at the end of 2013 to be completed by November 2014 to March 2015, according to a City of York Council report earlier this year.
However, the latest report now says construction will not begin until June 2014, to be finished by July 2015, meaning York City Knights look likely to spend two seasons sharing Bootham Crescent with York City.

It has also been revealed current Huntington Stadium operators, GLL, are making a loss and have given notice to terminate the lease of the stadium on April 2013, which could have left York City Knights homeless, closed the athletics track and shut Waterworld and Courtney’s Gym.
To avoid such a closure, City of York Council is to offer GLL, a social enterprise, a reduced rent for 15 months until June 30, 2014, and underwrite any losses made by GLL for the past three months.
The cabinet will consider whether to approve the plans at a meeting on Tuesday.
John Guildford, chair of York City Knights, questioned the delays and said he could not understand why the project was taking so long. He said: "I think it’s a waste of money. It should be done in a year. It’s disgraceful. We didn’t know about it."

Aye, approving a brand new stadium despite fierce opposition and then underwriting any losses from the SMC so that the Knights have somewhere to play next year. Horrible people them.

Haha. My Grandads has been a regular in the Agar Arms in Warthill for about 25 years. Let's just say over the last 10 years he hasn't very fond of the Smith families management style at all...!

Taken from the football forum where we are still trying to work out if they are genuine but new images of the stadium. Seems like a lot of effort if it's a hoax!
