Looking forward to welcoming York City Knights fans to Lamport Stadium. I had a great time at Bootham Crescent for the season opener and can't wait for the clash of the titans on Saturday. Some tips:
Kickoff is 1 p.m. local time. Stadium opens around 11:30 a.m. If you want to bring in water to drink, it must be in an unopened, sealed bottle and you have to enter by the northeast gate (corner closest to King Street and Jefferson Avenue).
There are five or more great bars very close by for before & afters and the Beer Garden stays open for two hours after the game ends.
Craft Brasserie on Atlantic Ave - brewpub with 120 craft beers on tap, best of the bunch for food
Big Rock/LIberty Commons on Jefferson Ave - good vibe, nice outdoor patio
3 Brewers on Hanna Ave - officially the Wolfpack pub. A selection of 5 or 6 of their own beers, nice patio.
Brazen Head on LIberty Ave
Local Liberty Village on Liberty Ave
Beer Garden, inside Lamport Stadium: about 8-10 beer and cider vendors each home game. You buy tokens for $8.50 for any drink (14 oz) or you can buy cans (16 oz) from the beer guys in the stands for $9.50 (or a beer token plus $1). Food inside the stadium is limited to burgers and hot dogs. Sorry no pies.
You can get to Lamport on the 504 King Street tram (streetcar), get off at Jefferson Ave. Or the 509 streetcar from Union Station heading for the Exhibition. From there it's a 5-6 minute walk through the underpass (under the railway line) and up the street north and west to Lamport.
Weather is looking great so far, sunny without being too hot, but bring a hat and sunblock.
Safe travels and see you there!
