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 20 family parking spaces free of charge. 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 serve basis on the day.


Parking permits

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

Spaces are available to Season Ticket holders in the Red Car Park at Madejski Stadium.  These are priced at £180 for the 2016/17, and includes all 23 Sky Bet Championship games and all home cup games.  Please note that you should arrive 15 minutes ahead of kick-off, or we reserve the right to re-allocate the space.

Any supporters that have previously been on our waiting list will have their £10 deposit refunded when they book their Seasonal Permit.

We are currently sold out of Permits for the Disabled Car Park, but we operate a waiting list.  It costs £10 to join the waiting list but supporters will be refunded if they are offered a Permit in the future.

To book a place in the Red Car Park or join the waiting list for the 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 
On matchday a limited number of spaces are available within the orange car park. These spaces will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis to drivers with a valid blue disabled badge at a cost of £5. Season permits are sold out but if you would like to join the waiting list please contact the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313/ memberservices@readingfc.co.uk


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