Flags to make a return this weekend

By Dan Simmonite | 19th April 2022

We are pleased to announce that flags will make a return to the LNER Community Stadium this Saturday for our fixture against Gloucester - thanks to the York City Supporters' Trust.

The club and Stadium Management Company (SMC) welcome supporters to bring flags and banners into the stadium to show their support on a matchday, and we are thrilled to have the Supporters Trust lead this project for the fans to create a bigger atmosphere at our new home.

In line with the ground regulations, flags brought into the stadium must have fire retardant certificates attached to them. The new flags meet these standards and will be securely stored within the stadium and managed by the Supporters Trust on a matchday.

The Supporters' Trust said: "We have designed and produced five huge flags that meet all the necessary fire retardancy standards. The Trust will be recruiting volunteers from the South Stand to wave the flags before kick-off and at half-time. It is hoped that this initiative will help to raise the atmosphere at games and improve positive engagement with our younger supporters.

"With only two games left of the season the Trust have had to act quickly to ensure that flags can be enjoyed at the LNER this season. We want supporters to get far more involved in future flag designs and so we hope to add to the collection with fan-designed flags during the closed season.

"Should fans want to organise their own flag designs please contact info@ycst.org.uk so that the Trust can provide relevant advice and make the necessary arrangements.

"It is important to stress that all flags must first be approved by the SMC before being allowed entry to the ground. The Trust, football club and SMC want all fans to enjoy a fantastic matchday experience and we call on all fans to get behind the squad and support the club in a positive way going forwards. We look forward to unveiling the flags this coming weekend."
