Stadium fallout ahead of crunch clash

York City Knights are experiencing stadium trouble ahead of their crunch Championship clash with Bradford Bulls at the weekend.

The Stadium Management Company (SMC) at the LNER Community Stadium has chosen to limit the Sunday fixture crowd to just 2,000 spectators, despite the fact that York’s clash with Bradford will be one of the most important matches in the Championship play-off race.

It is also limited without bearing in mind that the York women’s side will be taking on Leeds in a double-header at the Community Stadium.

The York SMC are currently in discussions with the Safety Advisory Group in an attempt to increase the capacity, but the City Knights club are advising fans to purchase tickets in advance so as not to be disappointed if it is a sell-out.

York are eighth in the second tier with just seven wins in 17 games, with Bradford sitting pretty in fourth,  having lost a mere five games in 2021.
