Matchday Information: York City (h)

    Chester host York City in the FA Cup First Round this weekend, and here’s all the info you need to know ahead of the game…

    Kick off at the Leap76 Stadium (CH1 4LT) this Saturday is 3pm.

    Do I need a ticket to attend the match?

    Yes. Supporters are advised that while the temporary capacity reduction is in place, matchday admission will not be available at turnstiles, meaning tickets will have to either be bought online at or at the Ticket Office.

    We advise supporters wanting to purchase their tickets at the office on a matchday to arrive earlier than normal to reduce queuing times.

    Please note, at the time of writing we only have approx 150 South Stand tickets remaining for Chester fans. All other stands have now SOLD OUT. On arrival, you simply need to present your printed ticket or mobile phone to be scanned at the turnstile.

    It is allocated seating for all Chester tickets sold, please sit in the correct seat on your ticket.


    Which turnstile should I use?

    Please make a note of which turnstile you need to use before arriving at the ground. Club officials and volunteers will be on hand outside the stadium to help supporters who need assistance.
