Welcome to the LNER Community Stadium, York. Home to both York City Football Club and York RLFC, this 8,500 all seater stadium also houses some fantastic leisure facilities, including a 25m swimming pool, spacious gym, Clip N Climb Arena, and 5 aside 3G Pitches.

Non-matchday events
The stadium, opened in early 2021, also has some fantastic facilities for non-matchday events. All our function spaces have loads of natural daylight and views across the pitch to the West stand. With built in AV, modern facilities and a fantastic location just 3 miles from the city centre of York, our opening has certainly been eagerly awaited. We look forward to hosting prestigious events here in York and we would be a great choice of venue for business meetings, black tie dinners, family celebrations and much more.

Our largest space, the LNER Lounge, can seat up to 300 in theatre style or 200 for dining and features a smart bar facility, private toilets, and integrated AV. If you’re looking for a modern venue that offers flexibility and you’d like to be one of the first to host your event here then get in touch today to find out more.
