With the Royals’ Championship campaign beginning in less than a fortnight’s time, Season Ticket holders can expect their brand new 2017-18 cards in the post in the coming days!
Every supporter who has committed to a Season Ticket for 2017-18 will receive the new card, and you’ll notice a brand new design as well as some other notable changes. Please also note that your Customer Number will now be called your Member ID moving forward.
Also included in your pack will be information on two brand new and exciting schemes that will add extra elements to your experience following your club – the Royals Rewards loyalty scheme and the introduction of the Season Ticket payment card.
The Royals Rewards Loyalty Scheme will be launching from 9am on Thursday 27th July and is exclusive to all 2017-18 Season Ticket holders.
The scheme will give each supporter the opportunity to accrue points that can be redeemed on a wide variety of exciting products and experiences from the club and its official partners.
You can head over to your portal by visiting rewards.readingfcdirect.co.uk and logging in using your Reading FC Direct login details. Full information can be found by clicking here, including details of how you can earn points simply by cheering on your team!
The uses for your card will not begin and end with simply giving you access to Madejski Stadium however! All Adult, 65 & over and 18-24 Season Ticket cards will now look like a payment card.
This addition will mean you can top up cash onto your card for use at a selected number of merchants who will partner with the Royals during the season, as well as make payments around Madejski Stadium on a matchday. And, by doing so, you can earn bonus Royals Rewards points in the process!
If you are a supporter aged 8-17, you will receive a standard Season Ticket card without the payment functionality.
The payment functionality will be made available once the 2017-18 season has started so please keep an eye on the Reading FC official site for future updates.
If you haven't received your new card by Thursday 3rd August, please call the Ticket Office on 0118 968 1313.
