Stadium parking
On a matchday, only very limited overflow parking is available at the stadium for £8 - we advise supporters to consider one of our off-site car parks. Non-Permit holders enter the Stadium via Northern Way only and Permit holders enter via Hurst Way and Northern Way. 

Family parking area
If you have a child under the age of 12 in your car, you will be eligible to park in our special designated area for £8 - spaces are available in advance by phoning the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313 or visiting the Ticket Office in person. If purchasing in advance, parking permits will be posted or available for collection from the Main Ticket Office prior to matchday.

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 in advance and can be done so by calling 0118 968 1313. 

A limited number of spaces will also be available on a first come first served basis on the day. 

Seasonal Parking Permits
The vast majority of parking spaces at Madejski Stadium are reserved for Seasonal Parking Permit holders.

Parking is currently off sale but we are operating a waiting list for the Red Car Park and Disabled Car Park at a cost of £10 to join. 

We cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be offered a space for next season, but you must be a Season Ticket holder to join our waiting list.  If you offered a space in future or you wish to leave the waiting list then your £10 will be refunded. 

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. 

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. 

Disabled parking 
Seasonal permits are sold out but if you would like to join the waiting list please contact the Ticket Office by calling 0118 968 1313.

Bicycle parking
We have cycle racks at the front of the Park & Ride car park where it is free to park your bike.
