The wait is over, the fixtures are here! And this morning we can reveal that our very first fixture of the 2017/18 campaign will be against Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road, scheduled for a 3pm kick-off on Saturday 5th August.
Dates for the diary: opening day, Christmas fixtures, international breaks...21 June 2017
And in the week that follows, our Carabao Cup campaign begins with the visit of Gillingham in the first round – please note that the date and time of this fixture has not yet been finalised.
Our first Madejski Stadium game of the Championship campaign falls on Saturday 12th August, when we host Fulham - our first competitive fixture on home turf since completing a two-leg play-off win against the Cottagers in May. Aston Villa visit RG2 in the following week.
There'll be mid-season breaks in September, October, November and March for more international action as a number of our boys vie for World Cup spots with their countries, and the Christmas period promises a feast of football - both here at Madejski Stadium and on the road.
And of course, we know our fans will want to know which stadium will be overrun with inflatables next May...! Cardiff City will play host to our final game on Sunday 6th May.
