Let’s paint Wembley blue and white again!

Royals fans… one last push!

26 May 2017

We all know what is at stake.

And we all know we have a big part to play. 

You were magnificent at the Madejski to edge us past Fulham. Now we need your help again! 

We asked you to summon up a sensational atmosphere when we faced Fulham in the semi-final… and you didn’t let us down! 

We need you to organise the acoustics once more please – back the boys and make some noise to rock Wembley! Anyone who comes home singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ without a husky tone to their voice, hasn’t given it their all! 

But we also want to create another striking visual masterpiece, adorn Wembley Stadium with our hoops in a stunning show of support for the Royals. 

Placed on every Royals supporter’s seat at Wembley, will be a commemorative bag – some blue, some white. 

When the two teams emerge from the tunnel at Wembley, the East side of the great stadium needs to spell out ROYALS as, with your assistance, our giant crowd mosaic paints one half of Wembley blue and white! 

So rise up and hold your small but vitally important piece of our crowd mosaic aloft (with the plain side facing up)… and, of course, make all the noise you can as Jaap Stam’s side stride out onto the pitch just before 3pm. 

A sea of blue and white will do all it can to show our support for the eleven men picked to do us proud on the day. 


After the semi-final second leg victory against Fulham, Royals boss Jaap Stam completed his post-match media duties by speaking to former Royals skipper Ady Williams as part of BBC Radio Berkshire’s post-match coverage. 

As part of the interview, Ady read out a text he’d received from a big Royals fan… “Life is about experiences, not things. My two boys will love Reading forever because of nights like tonight. Amazing scenes.” 

We can’t foresee the future nor directly control the result on Monday afternoon. But the baton is handed to you, our supporters, to help try to create another memorable moment in the history of Reading Football Club.
