Tickets are now on sale for the biggest York City match in years.
City take on Boston United at the LNER Community Stadium this Saturday (21 May) at 3pm in the National League North playoff final.
Victory would see City promoted back up to the National League.
Demand for tickets will be huge. Sadly however, the capacity of the stadium has been cut by 1,000 seats to 7,500 for the final.
This is after the club met with the York Safety Advisory Group (SAG), which is made up of representatives from City of York Council and the fire, police and ambulance services.
The reduced capacity is due to “to the damage to the stadium, pyrotechnics and pitch encroachment on Wednesday night“.
How to get tickets
Tickets are now on sale to York City Season Ticket holders who have 24-hour priority access and will be able to purchase one additional ticket. Seats are first come, first served and “your usual seat is not guaranteed”.
