Reading FC have teamed up with viagogo to provide Season Ticket Holders with the opportunity to resell seats for games that they cannot attend.
In the past, fans who were forced to miss home games at Madejski Stadium were left with little choice but to leave their seats empty, but this brand new scheme gives them the chance to recuperate some cash for those fixtures that they are set to miss out on.
After taking on board comments in recent fans’ surveys the Royals can now offer this fantastic new initiative, which adds further weight to an already impressive package for Season Ticket Holders – whilst also giving other supporters extra opportunities to buy tickets for games and ensuring the Stadium is as full as possible for every game.
Once Season Ticket Holders list their seats for sale on the viagogo website, they will receive anything from matchday face value to double the value of their matchday ticket, less a transaction fee.
There is no limit to the amount of games they can choose to sell – however there is no guarantee that their seat will be bought for any game.
After the seat has been sold the Season Ticket Holder will see the game immediately removed from their season ticket and the buyer receives a paper ticket (or if they are a member it will be loaded directly onto their member card) – whilst the seller will receive the money on the day of the match.
As part of this initiative, the club will also make a small amount of South Stand match tickets available for sale on the viagogo website, once tickets go to General Sale.
Please note that seats must be purchased in the relevant category, for instance a concession ticket could not be upgraded to an adult after purchase – and are on sale to home supporters only.
