York City have confirmed that Saturday’s home game with Chester will go ahead without supporters.

The National League North club have today explained: “When the Prime Minister announced on the 23rd November that fans could attend football matches, we knew it was going to be a race against time to get the necessary certificates and approvals for Bootham Crescent.

“As previously communicated, we have been poised to move out of Bootham Crescent and into the LNER Community Stadium for a number of months, and as such, we have been careful not to unnecessarily invest important club funds into Bootham Crescent.

“Despite a huge amount of effort from staff and our loyal volunteers, we are unable to welcome fans back on Saturday 5th December, as we are still waiting for external providers to certify parts of the stadium, work which will surpass the deadline given by regulatory bodies.”
