The Royals will compete in two pre-season double headers against overseas opposition from three different countries during our ten day stay in Holland next month.
Jaap Stam is set to take his squad back to his homeland once more as a group of first team and Under-23 players will join the coaching staff in a return to Oosterbeek on Wednesday 12th July.
However, it is anticipated that due to local stewarding regulations out in Holland, all four of these fixtures will be played at venues close to the team’s training base but behind closed doors - therefore not open to supporters. Rest assured, every kick will be followed by the club’s website, covered via our official social media streams and full highlights of all four games will be broadcast on our brand new iFollow service.
On Saturday 15th July, the Royals will take on Belgian top flight side KV Kortrijk - kick-off scheduled for 3pm.
Then, three hours later, Reading will take on Turkish top tier outfit Gençlerbirliği, kick-off 6.30pm.
The following week will then be spent on the training pitch for a group of players looking to bolster their fitness levels ahead of the start of the 2017-18 campaign.
Then on Saturday 22nd July, another double header will end the summer’s stay in Holland – as Jaap Stam’s side play two more fixtures locally, both again played behind closed doors.
Sparta Rotterdam will be our opponents when we kick off the first of those fixtures at 11am – the Eredivisie side travelling across the Netherlands to take on the Royals in Oosterbeek.
Then at 1.30pm, Reading will take on their second Belgian side of the pre-season tour – second tier side Cercle Brugge giving the Royals their final run out in Holland.
