Enhanced matchday experience for Season Ticket holders 2016-17Next season, we are aiming to make Madejski Stadium more comfortable for supporters of all ages who are planning to watch the Royals from their seat in the Upper West stand.
While the vast majority of our 2016-17 Season Ticket prices were either reduced or frozen for next season, a small increase of £25 was introduced to adult renewal prices in the Upper West – but, as promised, incorporated in that rise will be a series of renovations designed to enhance those fans’ matchday experience at Madejski Stadium.
Doors are being added to the entrances to the Upper West, which will mean the concourse will be sheltered from the winter weather and help create a more comfortable pre-match and half-time environment for all fans.
The male and female toilets in the Upper West will be upgraded during the summer, providing a better standard of facility to supporters.
The concourses will be decorated – losing their stark breeze block feel in favour of a fresh lick of paint from top to bottom which will again help to enhance the environment.
As previously mentioned, part of this pledge to our Upper West fans will see catering provider Compass provide food options exclusive to the Upper West stand - providing supporters with premium quality food alternatives not available anywhere else within the Madejski Stadium complex.
Simultaneously, the aim is to install bean-to-cup coffee stations for our supporters on Madejski Stadium matchdays.
Seats and stools will be in place for the start of the 2016-17 campaign, with stand-alone units also due to be installed to help create a more sociable atmosphere for all those enjoying a pre-match or half-time pint.
And we will increase the number of concourse televisions in the Upper West – allowing all our Upper West fans to catch the early kick-off or see some of our season’s highlights in more viewer-friendly surroundings.
In 2016-17, we want to offer our fans more choice. With these Upper West renovations, we are supplying those supporters who opt to take a seat in that stand with an enhanced matchday environment.
We firmly believe these improvements offer value for money to our renewing Upper West Season Ticket holders and to any Royals fan who is looking to upgrade his or her matchday experience next season.
And remember, with a wider range of pricing categories spread across the three home stands and a number of different concessions categories now available at Madejski Stadium, there are Season Ticket options for all supporters depending on your matchday needs and preferences for 2016-17.
