The clocks went back in the early hours of Sunday morning, we woke up to sub-zero temperatures on Monday… and on Tuesday we will used the yellow Mitre Delta Fluo Flare balls for the first time this season!
The annual introduction of the yellow balls means that we’re undoubtedly moving towards the winter months – we’ll be using the new balls from our home game against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening until we meet their Midland rivals Derby County on Saturday 24th February at Madejski Stadium.
EFL partners Mitre regularly roll out the new balls at this time of the season, with the increased visibility offered by the yellow balls often an important factor over these temperate months. Although not even the Fluo Flare will be able to resist the densest of fog… let’s hope we don’t have a similar predicament to last year’s game against Fulham!
Make sure you’re here on Tuesday evening to see us take on Forest – tickets begin at just £20 Adults when bought in advance, with discounts available for concessionary tickets. Click the banner below for more information.
