Three games in eight days at Madejski Stadium this August!

Get yourselves along to our first flurry of home matches this season!

3 August 2017

Royals will start their Sky Bet Championship campaign at Loftus Road in just three days' time, and then we will welcome Jaap Stam and his side back to Madejski Stadium for three matches in eight days!

On Tuesday 8th August, we get our campaign in the Carabao Cup underway against League 1 outfit Gillingham in the first round, with kick-off at 8pm.

The Gills have pedigree in this competition from last season, impressively knocking out Premier League Watford in extra time in the second round following Bradley Dack's strike.

They will be hoping for a similar run in this campaign, with Jaap Stam's side out to stop them in our first action at Madejski Stadium this season. 

Then, on Saturday 12th August, last season's Championship Play-Off semi-final opponents Fulham return to RG2 to do battle in the first match of the new Championship campaign on our relaid pitch.

One of the hallmarks of Slaviša Jokanović and his side last season was their impressive form away from home, winning more matches on the road than they managed at Craven Cottage!

Your support could prove vital, then, in what will be a big test for Royals under the floodlights.

The final game of this run of home fixtures will be against Steve Bruce's well-fancied Aston Villa side on Tuesday 15th August, with a 8pm kick-off.

Following a surge in form in the second half of last season, Villa have made a number of marquee signings as they aim for their own promotion push this time around.

Former England and Chelsea captain John Terry and former Stoke City stalwart Glenn Whelan are among the names to join Villa Park this transfer window, with what is set to be a very competitive match in store at Madejski Stadium!

Tickets for all three fixtures are available now via our club website, so come out and support your team as we go for a good start to another successful season!
