York Stadium getting a bit more capacity

Recommended Posts

 

Extended for possible Super League licence in the future?

I'm sure it will be extendable, but I think they're taking one step at a time at the moment!

Let's not make this a thread about the possibility of licensing though.

Has the stadium been funded by the council ? 

Mainly council funded with money from a shopping centre development next door plus about £2m from the Football Foundation and sale of Bootham Crescent.

Total cost is about £40 million, massive cinema, leisure complex & NHS health centre type stuff in there.

Can't wait to be in there now, it's gone on far too long, joint stadium for both clubs was first talked about in 2000 and that proposal not happening is what ended York Wasps effectively. This stadium project caused numerous problems for the Knights until we got a new owner, now relationships with the council and Football club seem to be really productive so it should be the best thing that's ever happened to RL in North Yorkshire.

No, there’s no plans to bring back licensing, so any additional capacity will have nothing to do with a situation that has been completely made up.

Seasons not over, so who knows where York will end up.  Averaging around 1900 and with luck can put 500 on that in the new stadium?

Would be interesting to know what the projection is for attendances next season?

Congrats to York. They really are a vibrant club on the up. They're stadium situation will be better than most SL clubs next season.

Thought the rugby club put money into Ryedale stadium therefore have invested something into the new ground as it’s built on the same footprint

After the Fev game our total league average home attendance in 2019 is 2125 🙂

For context:

 

2019 Average 2125

2018 Average 1692

2017 Average 1088

2016 Average 592

2015 Average 428

Surly they could do something similar at Odsal

Any standing?

What's the score with regards to income for the RL club, is it based on a % of the investment in the stadium (disregarding the other parts of the complex), are York buying their share of the stadium or is it long term lease/rent?

I just about remember my first visit to York/Clarence st, it was a mid week match, I was 9 and went with my mum IIRC, normally went to away matches with my auntie as she worked at the Boulevard BITD. York fans always seemed to be a nice bunch from what I remember but haven't been back since 1980 in the old Div1.

As a Swinton Lions fan I envy what is happening at York with the new stadium.

Now I accept that we will never move back home to Swinton and accept that we will probably never again play within the boundaries of Salford City Council.

 I wish that neighbouring Trafford Council could do something similar to this say near the Trafford Centre if possible that Swinton Lions,or whatever they become as I am sure Manchester will be added into the name one day soon along with say Sale Sharks and another team perhaps.

Sorry I'm lost on this one! They are increasing capacity by 399? To accommodate Women’s Rugby League World Cup in 2021.

More of an update on progress and adding to capacity.  When posturing and desktop studies on other stadiums is ongoing, York have got the backing and are pushing forward.

Gav Willo’s list of attendances show increases year on year.

Of course, it could all go silly with promotion but any more planned initiatives for the next campaign Gav?
