At 3pm on Saturday 22nd December, we’ll be kicking off at Madejski Stadium for the final time before Christmas…and we need one big final push for 2018 from our fans.
Scott Marshall came within a whisker of winning at the weekend so we need your support to get us over the line against a fine Middlebrough side who will certainly pose us another different challenge this weekend!
And on Saturday, not only do we have mince pies, Santa grottos, face painters, raffle prizes, card making, Christmas films, hymns and a DJ...but we are giving all our ST holders the opportunity to bring a friend of family member for as little as £5!
Bring a friend for 'mates rates'
We are delighted that our popular ‘Mates Rates’ offer is being run for this Boro game – meaning that Season Ticket holders can bring friends along for just £10 Adults or £5 Concessions!
Our terrific ticket offer, which is normally only run for midweek fixtures during the course of the campaign, will make it even more affordable for supporters to come along to this festive fixture!
The Christmas fixture is always a popular one at Madejski Stadium and we want to see as many Royals fans here as possible! This offer is the perfect chance for those 'exiled' Royals who are home for the holidays to catch a game in RG2 for just £10 Adults or £5 Concessions! It's also a way of getting out of that last-minute Christmas shopping!
The Owners' Raffle
Every ticket holder will automatically be entered into a random prize draw which will see Royals supporters rewarded for their loyal backing with an early Christmas present from Mr and Ms Dai!
You don't have to do anything to enter! Simply turn up to cheer on the Royals in what will be another tough challenge against a side riding high at the top end of the Championship. We need your support! And we appreciate it!
Santa is on his way!
Santa’s Grotto will open for all the nice boys and girls (not those on the naughty list unfortunately!) in the Kennet Room in hospitality - so why not treat yourself and the family and watch the final home game of the year in luxury?
Face painting and card making along with a host of other activities will be on offer to those who choose our hospitality packages for the Middlesbrough match.
For further information or to book your place, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0118 968 1010!
And there will also be an opportunity to meet Father Christmas in the megastore too – all those young Royals fans who have written and posted a letter from the megsatore this month can come and collect an early Christmas gift from the big man himself!
And don't forget that throughout December, the Royals are running a 20% discount on all home and away shirts ahead of Christmas! So why not pick up some last minute gifts while you're here to back the boys!
All aboard the 'Royals Bus'
At our December fixtures to date, arts and crafts have been added to the long list of actrivities taking place in the Fun Zone and on board the Royals Bus at Madejski Stadium.
Christmas cards have been made, DVDs have been playing Christmas movies and some of our young players have been visiting the Fun Zone to meet supporters, young and old! There will be more of the same in store when we take on Middlesbrough!
And fans have been treated to visits from some of our up and coming Under-23s stars in the Fun Zone in recent weeks - Axel Andresson and Luke Southwood were joining in the festive activities at the last home game! Two more will be on board this weekend.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Feeling festive now? Well so are we! Mulled wine and mince pies will be given to Royals fans free of charge prior to kick-off on Saturday 22nd December.
Served from the Fan Zone, between 1.30pm - 2.30pm, supporters will be able to endulge in a mince pie and a festive beverage before the action begins!
The taste buds satisfied, there will be carol singers addressing another of the five senses as they sing some of the most melodic Christmas hymns and songs from outside the Megastore and in the Fan Zone.
And a DJ will be playing back-to-back Christmas songs in the Fan Zone too!
So don’t miss the Middlesbrough match. Get behind the boys for one last time in 2018 and let’s pick up three points to help us kick start 2019 with a home win behind us.
Don't forget that you can buy a match ticket for your friend or family member for just £10 Adults or £5 Concessions! Visit readingfcdirect.co.uk, call 0118 968 1313 or visit the Ticket Office in person at Madejski Stadium to get your seat.
