Go Store schools tournament to be held at stadium

23rd November 2021

York City Football Club Foundation are delighted to announce that we are hosting our Schools Football Tournament 2021-22 for schools in York at the new home of York City FC, thanks to the support of one of our new neighbours at Monks Cross, Go Store Self Storage.

The “Go Store Tournament” will be the first of its kind run at the new LNER Community Stadium. The event will be held on Thursday 9th December and will accommodate up to 120 young people for a full day of activity and six a side matches on the 3G pitches in front of the Stadium.

Paula Stainton, Foundation Manager, said: “It’s so great to be able to return to hosting a competitive activity on this scale alongside the York School Sports Partnership. We have offered all of the schools in York this great opportunity, where we are aiming target less active children from years 5 and 6 especially in order to provide them with a chance to be a part of a day of football.

"Plus we’re excited to working with partners, Go Store to achieve this event.  Go Store York is home to hundreds of secure purpose built self-storage units, within a fenced compound at Monks Cross and has a state of the art smartphone access control system which we have found very easy to use as we have our own Unit with them."

Jamie Galbraith, Manager, Go Store, added: “It’s always great to be involved with the local community and it’s now more important than ever given the last few years we’ve all gone through. It’s been particularly tough on kids with so many disruptions and we hope that by helping in whatever way we can will bring them some well needed positivity.”
