All supporters are invited to Madejski Stadium a little earlier on matchdays to join the matchday build up in the Fan Zone.
As well as welcoming Reading supporters, visiting fans are also more than welcome to join us and mingle in a friendly atmosphere around the ground.
We have a large LED screen in the Fan Zone which will help you get into the mood for kick-off by showing a selection of Reading-related content, and where applicable, we will also screen the day's early kick-off as well.
Thanks to our Official Pouring Rights Partner, Heineken, fans can pick up a beverage at the Royals Rendezvous, which is named after the former Elm Park hotspot, with the area around the bar decked out in images of former and current Royals stars. Heineken will be joined at the Fan Zone by West Berkshire Brewery, our local ale partner, who will be serving their famous 'Good Old Boy' once again at Madejski Stadium.
Located outside the East Stand, the Fan Zone is an ideal place to catch up and enjoy a drink with fellow fans before the action kicks off so make sure you swing by before taking your seats. Food is also on sale so you can refuel before heading into the ground.
The Fan Zone will be open two hours before kick-off for both weekend and midweek matches, and throughout the season we will have a wide variety of entertainment on show as you soak up the pre-match atmosphere. It will remain open throughout the game, and then you can stop by after the game for a post-match drink as well.
