York City Football Club is a professional football club at the heart of the community and was established in 1922.

  • The club participates in the National Conference League, the fifth tier of English football. York City F.C joined the Football League in 1929, and have spent most of their history in the third or fourth tier of the Football League. The club briefly rose as high as the second tier of English football, spending two seasons in the old Second Division in the 1970s.At the end of the 2003–04 season the club lost their League status when they were relegated from the Third Division. They remained in the Conference National until the end of the 2011–12 season, when they were promoted back to the Football League following a 2–1 victory against Luton Town at Wembley Stadium in the 2012 Conference National play-off Final.
  • In the same season the club won the FA Trophy beating Newport County 2-0 at Wembley, therefore completing a memorable double.Between 1922 and 1932, York City played their home games at Fulfordgate. The club purchased the land for Bootham Crescent, a former cricket ground, in the summer of 1932 as it was closer to the club's centre of support and the railway station than Fulfordgate. Bootham Crescent was then converted into a football ground and opened on 31 August 1932, where the club has resided ever since. In March 1938, the ground's record attendance was set when 28,123 people watched York City play Huddersfield Town.The club plan on moving to the new Community Stadium to begin the 2018/2019 season.For full information on the Football Club visit the official website at: www.yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk
