After National League North was suspended, York City FC has taken the next step and closed until further notice.

A spokesperson said:

  • The club will however, continue to support its players and staff remotely during these challenging circumstances.

    Players have received electronic information and advice in relation to health, wellbeing and (if appropriate) keeping fit while in self-isolation. The manager, club doctor and coaching staff will remain contactable via phone and email.

    The club has also re-communicated government advice and is offering ongoing support to staff, who are now working from home or self-isolating where necessary.

Their work in the community, via the YCFC Foundation, has also been suspended until further notice, but foundation staff will offer support remotely to its vulnerable community members.

“We do also, remain open on our club social media channels and welcome fans to use that forum to support each other,” the club said.

In advance of the club reopening, a date which we can’t confirm currently, Bootham Crescent and our training ground will undergo a deep clean.

York City Football Club Chairman Jason McGill said; “York City FC is more than just football, it is a support network and, for many, a family. On behalf of myself and the board, to our fans, players and staff ‘Stay safe and look after each other’.”
