York City chairman Jason McGill has today issued a fresh rallying call for supporters ahead of a really crucial council meeting this afternoon.

“A vote against the £4 million by the other political parties will cause the whole stadium and leisure project to be in doubt” – Jason McGill

A recent political shake-up of the City of York Council has raised sudden doubts
over plans for the new Community Stadium at Monks Cross. Labour’s recent loss of overall control has left the club fearing “significant and serious consequences”
for the stadium’s development.

McGill is therefore urging supporters to show their support for the new Community Stadium by attending a council meeting this afternoon at the council’s new West Offices, starting at 5pm.

He has similarly requested their attendance at the full Council Meeting in the Guildhall on Thursday 9th October at 6.30pm. On that date councillors will be asked to approve the extra £4 million needed to fund the new swimming pool to replace Waterworld.

“A vote against the £4 million by the other political parties will cause the whole stadium and leisure project, with the obvious sporting and community benefits, to be in doubt,” McGill told York’s official website. “This would cause at best delays to the project or at worst even put the project at risk. Both results would have huge cost, viability and legal implications to current council community leisure facilities, and, of course, the new Community Stadium.”
