Owner on Stoke openerOwner Anton Zingarevich believes the Royals fans will help as we take on Stoke City in our first game back in the Barclays Premier League.
Towards the end of last season the atmosphere at Madejski Stadium was electric, with our supporters helping roar us on to the npower Championship title.
Anton is now looking forward to beginning the new campaign on 18th August, kick off 3pm.
He told Reading FC Player, "We are all really looking forward to the whole season but of course we are concentrating on the first game. It is at home so hopefully our fans will help us as well.
"Every game is going to be really difficult in this division but we are quite confident after what we managed to achieved at the end of last season. We have added to our group so hopefully it will be a good season for us.
"Really we will just continue to look towards the next game and try to win every game like we have done before and I am sure that will do us good."
