Reading vs Crystal Palace
Saturday 28th July, 3pm
Pre-season friendly
Madejski Stadium

The Royals round off their pre-season campaign at home to Premier League side, Crystal Palace at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

It will be the first chance to see the Royals in their new 2018-19 kit, which is due to be revealed on Friday, as well as the first opportunity to see some of our new signings in action in RG2!

Goalkeeper Sam Walker became our fifth senior summer signing on Wednesday, alongside Dutch youngster Darren Sidoel, and we'll be welcoming the boys back from their intense pre-season training camp in Austria last week.

Performances have steadily improved over the course of the pre-season programme, with the squad earning two creditable draws against European opposition on the continent, and they've now returned to Hogwood to continue their preparations.

You can save money by getting your tickets in advance for Saturday's match, and you can save £2 by securing your seats prior to our game.

Of course, the bigger picture of the game is to get preparations in place for our opening Sky Bet Championship encounter at home to Derby County, but a positive performance and result will be welcomed against top tier opposition.
