Doncaster had a couple of advantages in getting theirs through (I was involved as the Dons supporters representative on the stadium delivery group so have a bit of insight in this). Firstly, Doncaster is a large area but has one football team, one rugby league team and one rugby union team. The first two shared the old stadium and were looking for a joint venture for a new one. This should also be an advantage to York over places like Castleford who have to consider other similar sized clubs. Secondly, and most importantly, Doncaster has an elected Mayor, it was in the manifesto of our first elected Mayor, Martin Winter (a former Dons player), to deliver this stadium. When he was elected he had the power and mandate to deliver it, away from other more complicated politics.
