It’s a new era for York City Knights.
The club got stronger and stronger as they became a real force in the Championship.
They left Ligue 1 and made the play-offs this year in the Championship.
With a star-studded squad, a great stadium, the City Knights are on the rise and are a team that many believe we could soon see in the Super League under the new IMG proposals.
They recently played at Wembley in the 1895 Cup final last year in a display of their ambition, but of course it is indeed a new era at York following the departure of James Ford.
The man who led their rise has headed to Wakefield in 2023 to be assistant coach to Mark Applegarth as Trinity look to head in a new direction next year.
This left York in need of a new direction and it’s one they’ve taken on with a brand new look for 2023 after releasing a radically new logo for 2023 and beyond.
With a black base and a hint of yellow, the look of the new logo is modern and sleek and many have already hailed the step which has been far more successful than some of their Super League rivals.
The club is also rebranded as York RLFC with the men seen as the Knights and their highly successful women’s team, the Valkyries.
👊 A new look, a new era.
🛡️ A club. Two teams.#WeAreYork⚔️
