Construction work is expected to start in May 2015 on the new York Community Stadium which will provide a joint future home for both York City Football Club and the York City Knights Rugby League Club. The 8,000-seat stadium will be located in the Monks Cross area of the city alongside a major retail park.

Facilities will also include a swimming pool, gym and artificial football pitches as well as providing extensive conference, meeting and banqueting space. The stadium should be complete by late 2016.
