Following the release of the 2017-18 fixture list last week, we can now confirm that two of our 46 fixtures have now been rescheduled following discussions between the relevant clubs and after EFL approval.
READING vs BIRMINGHAM CITY
Sky Bet Championship
Tuesday 2nd January 2018, kick-off 8pm
Firstly, our home fixture against Harry Redknapp's Birmingham City will now kick off at 8pm on Tuesday 2nd January 2018.
The Blues were set to travel to Madejski Stadium for a 3pm kick-off on New Year's Day - less than 48 hours after the final whistle in our third game within a week (at Barnsley's Oakwell stadium) - but this fixture will now take place a day later than initially scheduled to ease the fixture congestion during the hectic festive period.
READING vs QPR
Sky Bet Championship
Friday 30th March 2018, kick-off 5.30pm
Secondly, our home fixture against QPR has been brought forward a day and will now be staged on Good Friday, kick-off 5.30pm.
The Madejski Stadium meeting with Ian Holloway's side was set to kick off at 3pm on Saturday 31st March, but to alleviate the amount of football our first team are forced to play over the Easter period that match has now also been brought forward to Friday 30th March 2018.
Don't forget, if you have downloaded our fully synchronised ECAL calendar, these fixtures will automatically change in your personal diaries on your phone, tablet or computer!
It is inevitable that the fixture list will continue to be amended across the course of the season; dates will get changed for TV appearances, postponements may occur and our cup fixtures will be added in.
So whenever something changes on our calendar, it’ll change on yours too! No need for any manual input – it’ll all be in sync with the correct schedule whenever you look at it.
And each date in the diary will come with a lot of useful links about how to get tickets for the games and other important information.
