Reading Football Club can confirm a date has been set for our postponed home clash against Sheffield United, with the Blades set to visit Madejski Stadium on Tuesday 27th February, with kick-off at 8pm.
This date has been decided with both clubs hoping to keep as up-to-date as possible with the league calendar, with Sheffield United now set for FA Cup action against Leicester City on Friday 16th February, the same weekend on which our Championship fixture against the Blades was originally scheduled.
However, if their FA Cup tie is drawn, the upcoming match in RG2 will be postponed further due to a date clash with the required replay.
In which case, our league match with Sheffield United would be played on Tuesday March 13th, with an 8pm kick-off.
Any tickets already purchased for this match for the original date will remain valid when the game takes place, but any supporters who have already bought match tickets and are now unable to make it to Madejski Stadium on February 27th is entitled to a refund by calling 0118 968 1313.
Should the match be required to be further postponed due to the Blades’ FA Cup involvement, an update will be posted via the club website and on club social media channels.
