Seasonal Parking Permits
The vast majority of parking spaces at Madejski Stadium are reserved for Seasonal Parking Permit holders. Seasonal Parking is currently off sale but we are operating a waiting list for the 2017/18 season for the Red Car Park and Disabled Car Park at a cost of £10 to join. If you are offered a space in future or you wish to leave the waiting list then your £10 will be refunded. We cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be offered a space for next season and you must be a Season Ticket holder to join our waiting list.

If parking becomes available then costs are as follows:

• Red Car Park £230 
• Disabled Car Park £90 

To join the waiting list for the Red Car Park or Disabled Car Park, please phone the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313.

Matchday stadium parking
Parking for Sky Bet Championship fixtures costs £10 in the Car Park 3 Red Zone. This price may vary for cup fixtures and other events.

Parking at the Stadium is at a premium and booking in advance is the only way, subject to availability at the time of booking, to guarantee a parking space. Supporters can pre-book Car Park 3 Red Zone online in the ticketing area of www.readingfcdirect.co.uk or by phoning the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313. 

Parking will go off sale three working days before each fixture to allow enough time to post your permit (ie. the cut-off for parking for Saturday 3pm fixtures is 3pm on the preceding Wednesday, and the cut-off for parking for Tuesday 8pm fixtures is 3pm on the preceding Friday). Please be aware that in most cases your parking permit will be posted separately to any tickets that you purchase.

A limited number of permits might be available on a matchday if they do not sell out in advance, at a price of £10.

Disabled parking 
A limited number of spaces will be available at a cost of £5 to disabled supporters on a first come, first serve basis on a matchday from the entrance to the Orange Disabled Car Park. Disabled Supporters will need to provide a valid blue badge. 

Family parking area
If you have a child under the age of 12 in your car, you will be eligible to park in Car Park 2 Red Zone for £15. Spaces are available online or by phoning the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313. Parking will go off sale three working days before each fixture to allow enough time to post your permit. Please be aware that in most cases your parking permit will be posted separately to any tickets that you purchase.

As part of our commitment to attracting and retaining family groups, we are offering the first 30 parking spaces free of charge to families visiting for the first time. These must be booked at least three working days before and can be done so by calling 0118 968 1313.

Greyhound Parking Seasonal Permits
For the 2017/18 season we are able to offer a seasonal parking permit for the Old Greyhound Stadium at a cost of £200.

To purchase please phone the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313.

Coach & Minibus parking
Supporter Coach parking must be pre-booked by emailing customerservice@readingfc.co.uk or by calling 0118 968 1211. Parking is free of charge for coaches but minibuses are charged at the same rate as cars. 

Drop-off area
Cars can enter the Stadium roads to drop off up to 30 minutes before kick-off but there is no designated area. Cars can also enter the stadium roads to pick up 30 minutes after the final whistle. 

Bicycle parking
We have cycle racks at the top of VIP Car Park 1 where it is free to park your bike.

General information
Please note in order to allow pedestrians and buses to exit the stadium safely cars will be held back in the stadium car parks for around 20 minutes. There can also be delays of around 45 minutes to exit the stadium complex due to the heavy flow of traffic in and around the A33. 

The Millennium Madejski Hotel car park is only available to hotel guests on a matchday. 

Please note that parking at Madejski Stadium is gradually being reduced over the next couple of years due to the Royal Elm Park development. For more information regarding this, please click click here.
