There will be 4 bars at Broadhurst Park for this match.

Home supporters will have access to all bars and food provision.

The club has been granted a licence to serve alcohol throughout the match and fans will now be allowed to drink alcohol on the terraces from plastic glasses. As a result all drinks will now be served in plastic glasses.

Alcohol will not be served in the away end, but food and soft drinks will be available.

The Main Stand Function Room Bar will serve hot food together with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks before, during and after the match. We ask that fans purchasing alcohol in the Main Stand Bar during the game do not congregate at the back of the Main Stand, but instead find a position in the seats or terraces.

Before the turnstiles open, access to the Main Stand Function Room Bar is via the main reception by payment of the match admission price. After the turnstiles open, entry to the function room will be via turnstiles 1-6 and then through the seated area of the Main Stand.

The SMRE Bar situated under the large St. Mary’s Road End terrace is closed for renovation.

Our Cask Ale Bar situated under the Main Stand, behind the Paddock, will sell a selection of ales. Opposite the Cask Bar the Food Bar will serve hot food prepared by our chef, pies from HM Pasties and non-alcoholic drinks.

In view of the pitch we have a Bar between the Main Stand and SMRE which serves draught bitter and lager

We also have a Bar situated in the North Stand (opposite the Main Stand) next to the Burger Van.

Please note the Main Stand Bar and SMRE Bars are No Smoking Areas. Supporters wishing to smoke at half-time can do so in the designated areas in the corners of the ground.


We are still raising money for the club’s Development Fund as there are parts of the ground we need to complete. The quickest and easiest way is to buy a Pound for the Ground ticket at £1 each at the match with cash prize of £250 on offer.


The Club Shop is accessible at the front of the ground to the right of the Main Entrance.
The ‘End of line merchandise sale’ continues with a wide range of items on sale. Some new items are also always being added to the merchandise range so why not pop in and see what is in stock.

The shop will be open before the game and for 15 minutes after the final whistle.

Supporters travelling from Manchester city centre can use buses 181 or 182 which depart from Stand F on Lever Street. These buses stop right outside the ground at the top end of St. Mary’s Road.


Trains run between Manchester Victoria and Moston Train Station departing at 26 minutes past the hour arriving at Moston at 33 minutes past the hour. The ground is approximately 15 minutes’ walk from Moston Train Station. Trains return to Manchester every hour at 54 minutes past the hour.


From Central Manchester
From central Manchester head out of town on the A62 Oldham Road until the junction with Monsall Road. Turn left and pass Central Park Metrolink on your left and take the next right at the roundabout and follow the road ahead straight across another roundabout which takes you onto Lightbowne Road. Follow the road for around half a mile and you will see Broadhurst Park on your right hand side.

From the M60 – Clockwise
If travelling via the motorway network from the north and west, head for the M60 Manchester ring road. Leave the M60 at junction 20, then turn onto the A664. At the traffic signals turn left onto the A6104. Travel straight on and then at the Greengate roundabout take the 4th exit onto Lightbowne Road, the B6393. Carry straight on for around a half a mile and Broadhurst Park is on your left.

From the M60 - Anti-clockwise
If travelling via the motorway network from the south and east, head for the M60 Manchester ring road. Leave the M60 at junction 22, then straight on to Hollinwood Avenue, the A6104 . Travel straight on and then at the Greengate roundabout take the 1st exit onto Lightbowne Road, the B6393. Carry straight on for around a half a mile and Broadhurst Park is on your left.


We would urge supporters to use the car parks we have available for a charge of £5.00 at the ground and for £3.00 at the nearby St Mathews School, only 3 minutes’ walk from the ground.

We are under a duty to ensure areas such as St Mary’s Road and the north of Nuthurst Road are not used by visitors to Broadhurst Park.

Supporters should be mindful that there is no parking on:

- St Mary’s Road and the streets off St Mary’s Road; including Teddington Road, Merridale Road, Worthington Street and Tymm Street.

- Nuthurst Road;

- the West side of Moston Lane and the streets off it.

We can always use more volunteers to act as traffic marshals and indeed for a number of matchday functions, so if you can help, send an email to John Davies:johndavies@fc-utd.co.uk or telephone the office on 0161 769 2005 and leave a phone number for him to contact you to discuss.

Enjoy the game.

York City were a League club between 1929 and 2004 and 2012 to 2016. In 1974-75 they competed with Manchester United in Division 2, holding a place of 5th in October. They lost 1-2 to the Reds at Old Trafford in March 1975 to goals from Stuart Pearson and Lou Macari watched by 46,802. In September 1995 they won 3-0 in Manchester against United, this time in the League Cup 2nd Round First Leg, eventually winning 4-3 on aggregate.
Former FCUM keeper Nick Culkin joined United from the Minstermen for £100,000 in September 1995 whilst still a York City youth player. Culkin made 1 competitive appearance for United and 3 for FCUM.
Midfielder Theo Wharton has won 3 international caps for St Kitts & Nevis.
FCUM still need 2 points to be guaranteed safety.
