Golden envelopes hidden in 'The Royal' tomorrow

24 October 2014

Akpan exclusive in this weekend's programme

In Saturday's edition of ‘The Royal’, 10 golden envelopes will be hidden in issues that are sold before our clash with Blackpool, each one offering a fantastic Reading FC prize to ten lucky programme-readers.

If you are one of the lucky recipients of a golden envelope, there will be a host of superb prizes up for grabs, including the chance to visit the training ground to watch the team train, signed items and even some complimentary Madejski Stadium hospitality!

All you have to do is purchase a programme on the afternoon of the game, see if you find a golden envelope inside, open it up and follow the instructions to find out how to claim your prize! Good luck!

Hope Akpan has just tasted international football for the first time...and he's hungry for more. But his sole focus is on his form for the Royals right now and three points this weekend.

The 23-year-old midfielder spoke exclusively to this weekend's matchday programme about his Nigeria experience, his form this season and what we need to do to put a poor run of results behind us.

And there is so much more in Saturday's programme, including one of the toughest 106 challenge quizzes so far, all the information on our opponents this weekend and the programme notes personally penned by manager Nigel Adkins and club captain Jem Karacan.

Still only £3, you can buy your copy from our sellers dotted around the ground, the megastore, the Ticket Office or, if you can't make it to the game this weekend, you can also buy copies online at
