York City Knights are pleased to announce that, over the weekend of 1st – 3rd July, we will be holding our 2022 Heritage Weekend.
Rugby league in our city can trace it’s roots back over 150 years with York Football Club forming in 1868, playing both association and rugby football.
The club has been through several phases since then and, as such, is proud to have a rich and varied history with many players wearing the badge with pride.
Over the first weekend of July, we are pleased to be celebrating these with a number of events set to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
One of those focuses will be on Sunday 3rd July when our men play host to Barrow Raiders at the LNER Community Stadium as our Heritage Game. In previous years, Retro Round has proven popular and we are inviting Knights fans to pull on their favourite and best York rugby league jerseys from over the years with prizes available for a number picked out as the very best!
Next week will see further events announced as part of Heritage Weekend and we are looking forward to doing more over the coming years to celebrate those who helped get the club, and sport in York, to where it is today.
Tickets are available now for our Heritage Day match against Barrow Raiders at the LNER Community Stadium, priced at £20 for adults, £15 for concessions and FREE for under-16s. You can get yours online from the York Stadium Management Company Ticket Office HERE.
