The Betting Room head to Madejski
The Betting Room will provide in-stadia betting at The Madjeski next season after the Royals signed a new deal.
The Betting Room specialises in corporate and stadium betting services, and currently provides the in stadia betting service for Southampton, Portsmouth, Charlton, Ipswich, Millwall, Peterborough and AFC Bournemouth.
Peter Higgins, director of The Betting Room, said: "There are many ways for fans to bet on match days and we respect that, but having a punt at the stadium is still one of those activities that fulfills part of the match day experience whether you're in hospitality or on the concourse. We're delighted to sign up with Reading to be their stadium betting partner for next season. Match day betting is about providing a good service with good staff - and that's what we do.
"We already supply the in-stadia betting for a number of clubs in all of the divisions, so we understand what a punter wants. Reading have a great loyal following and a number of my friends are Reading fans, so I know the fans will look forward to having a punt again at the stadium on match days.
"We'll be the only people cheering on a 0-0 draw, but we're looking forward to serving Reading’s loyal following from next season."
Reading FC Head of Sales Adam Benson, added: "We are delighted to reach an agreement with The Betting Room for our stadium betting service. What has impressed me most about the company is its determination to provide a good level of service to both our corporate clients and our fans on the stadium concourses."
The Betting Room is seeking to recruit match day cashiers for the forthcoming season.
