South Stand now open to home fans for popular #Madejski500 match

Limited availability throughout the stadium for an historic milestone match for Madejski Stadium - buy yours now for just £5!

9 December 2017

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Our festive fixture against Burton Albion will be a hive of ‘Madejski 500’ activity – and to kick start what we hope will be an almighty celebration of an era which has been by far the most successful in Reading Football Club’s 146-year story so far, we are opening all four stands to all supporters, home and away, FOR JUST 500p!

When we meet the Brewers in our final home fixture of 2017 on Saturday 23rd December, it will be the 500th fixture held at Madejski Stadium since the turnstiles first revolved and the stands first filled for a curtain-raiser against Luton Town on Saturday 22nd August 1998.

And we want as many people here as possible to mark the occasion!

So match tickets for all ages, throughout the whole stadium (excluding hospitality), are just 500 pence! That includes a maximum price of a fiver for all Burton supporters who would like to be part of the celebration and follow their team’s fortunes in RG2 next month! And, on sale now, tickets are understandably flying off the shelves!

We now have limited availability in most areas of Madejski Stadium and, as a result, we are now opening the South Stand to home supporters to accommodate demand for this festive fixture!

Don't delay! You can buy your ticket now…

Don't forget Season Ticket Holders will also get reward for cheering us on against the Brewers next month! We will issue 50 Royals Rewards points to every single Season Ticket holders who comes to the game – and, of those who clock in by coming through the turnstiles, 500 will be randomly selected to receive an additional 500 bonus Royals Rewards points on their card!

Season Ticket Holders still receive - and always will receive - the very best value for money at Reading Football Club. They are most cost-effective way to watch all the Royals’ home games.

Reading Football Club continue to lead the way on making football affordable for its supporters – low Season Ticket prices which included Early Bird discounts, free tickets for Under-7s, the introduction of an 18-24 ticket and our ongoing commitment to Twenty’s Plenty! And that Twenty's Plenty promise has seen Royals fans benefit from the initiative in the form of reciprocal offers from other clubs for Reading fans on the road!

The Madejski 500

20 November 2017

And as a club, we run a selection of matchday promotions to attract new supporters to the stadium - just like this 500p ticket available to all supporters ahead of the Burton Albion game!

However, even if a non-Season Ticket holder takes up this promotion and capitalises on the four-match ticket bundle offer and the ‘Yorkshire Double Header’ initiatives which we ran last month, they would still be paying considerably more than a Season Ticket Holder per match across the course of the campaign.

And the majority of ticket promotion offers which are run by the club are only redeemable by Season Ticket holders themselves as we constantly encourage our most loyal fans to bring family and friends for discounted ticket prices.

Although the bottom line is that Season Tickets still offer the best value for money, it is also important to highlight all the offers which have been open exclusively to ST holders in recent months…

Royals Rewards Advent Calendar 2017

30 November 2017

Season Ticket holders have won a holiday for two to Thailand, complimentary use of an Executive Box for a home fixture, a private group stadium tour, a dugout chair and signed home and away shirts amongst other prizes offered only to ST holders.

And every day in December, supporters can enter 'Season Ticket Holder-exclusive' prize draws for whole host of Reading Football Club goodies - 'money can't buy' experiences, signed items, merchandise and much, much more available in our Royals Rewards Advent Calendar.

The atmosphere at Madejski Stadium has been so special when it has been packed to the rafters for unforgettable occasions across the 498 games which have been played here in the last 19 and a half years – most recently who will forget how our fans helped Jaap Stam’s side reach Wembley in an intense but exhilarating play-off semi-final second leg win over Fulham back in May. And we want as many fans here as possible to help create more memories in our 500th fixture!

With the Christmas weekend following the fixture, this is the perfect way to start the festive party early amongst your Royals friends and family! So, for just £5, we’d urge everyone to book a seat at Madejski Stadium, to back the boys and to make some noise!
