Families & Junior Supporters


This section of our website is dedicated to families and City ‘debutants’ – young fans making their first visit to LNER Community Stadium.

York City prides itself on being a community-centred, family club. We aim to offer a safe environment, a warm welcome and we want every visitor, both young and old, to have a positive matchday experience.

Tickets for young supporters

We have dedicated seating in quieter areas for families with children under 2 years old. Pre-booking is required, so please contact the York Stadium Management Company on tickets@yorksmc.co.uk or phone the ticket desk direct on 01904 942232. Office hours 10am-4:30pm Monday to Friday.

Please note that for safety reasons all U14s must be accompanied by an adult to enter the stadium.

Food & Drink

There are a number of food kiosks around the ground selling hot food, including burgers, pies, hot dogs, match day specials such as nachos and cheese, sweets, chocolate and hot and cold drinks. These are located in the Fanzone and in the North, West and Brew York South Stand concourses.

Merchandise & Gifts

The Club Shop, which sells replica kits, clothing, souvenirs and gifts, is situated at the front of the stadium in the community hub area. Alternatively, you can also browse our range of products in our online shop.

Special family event?

The club’s matchday programme, priced £3, has a section dedicated to young fans. The programme is always keen to feature fans celebrating their birthdays, or supporters making their ‘debut’ at York City.

We can also arrange for a special message to be read out at half-time by our matchday announcer. If you are celebrating a birthday, or are making your first appearance at the LNER Community Stadium, and would like a mention in the programme or over the tannoy, please email your details to enquiries@yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk as far in advance of the big day as possible.

(Because of deadlines and limited space, the club cannot guarantee inclusion, but it will endeavour to meet every request).
