New gaffer eagerly anticipating fixture schedule

17 June 2016

Stam looking forward to receiving Championship fixtures

It’s almost that time of year again – we’re less than a week away from receiving our 2016/17 Championship schedule!

So we’re on the countdown to Fixture Release Day, which falls on Wednesday 22nd June – and the new gaffer is as eager as anyone to see where we will be on the opening day on Saturday August 6th.

With some of the famous names of English football dropping into the division from the Premier League – as well as the likes of Burton Albion completing an incredible climb into the division – the anticipation will continue to build until the fixtures are released at 9am next Wednesday.

“The fixture release day is always very interesting,” said new Royals boss Jaap Stam.

“The Championship is a very strong league with some very big clubs coming back into it from the Premier League in Newcastle, Aston Villa and Norwich.

“It will be interesting to see who we’re going to be playing against for the first couple of games.  You hope that we’re going to be ready for every opponent and that we’ll be able to do well.”

Don’t forget that you can get all of the fixtures downloaded straight to your phone, tablet or mobile device – simply by subscribing to our ECAL calendar!  And all of the fixtures will be fully synchronised, so if our games move for any reason, your calendar will be updated automatically!
