Bootham Crescent is the home of York City Football Club but used by rugby league team York City Knights. With a capacity of 8,256, the ground is located near the centre of the city, just over a mile from York railway station.
The stadium comprises four stands: the Main Stand, the Popular Stand, the David Longhurst Stand and the Grosvenor Road End. The ground has held a league representative match, neutral club matches, and schoolboy and youth international matches. Other than football, it has hosted a concert, a grand firework display, American football and and beer festivals. The record attendance of 28,123 was set in March 1938.
York City Knights have played at Bootham Crescent since the start of the 2016 season. There was uncertainty on where they would play their home matches during the 2017 Kingstone Press League 1 season, but after a long wait it was finally confirmed the club would return to the stadium for this season.
