U21 Fixtures Confirmed

26 July 2013

Royals earn Premier League status

Fixtures have been announced for the Barclays Under 21 Premier League, with the Royals set to face some big names during the 2013/14 campaign.

There will be one national division comprised of 22 Category 1 Academies, and Reading will come up against the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

Having played each other once, either home or away, the top four teams in the table will progress to the semi-final stage and final to determine the overall Barclays Under-21 Premier League winners. The Academies who finish first and fourth in the League will meet in one semi-final, with the former at home, while the second and third-placed clubs will meet in the other semi-final, with the League runners-up deemed the home team.

This season each team is required to play at least three of their home matches at their nominated home stadium, with training grounds and Academy venues permitted for the staging of up to three home matches. The Royals will confirm the third venue for their BPLU21 clashes shortly.
