The Royals’ Under-23 side will kick off their Premier League 2 Division 2 campaign at Madejski Stadium on Saturday 11th August 2018, getting underway at 1pm against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
That fixture is one of four league games to take place at the home of our senior side before Christmas – Southampton and Sunderland both visit RG2 in August and September, before we welcome Manchester United on Sunday 16th December. That will be the return fixture of our away game which is scheduled to take place at Old Trafford in September.
Madejski Stadium also plays host to our Premier League International Cup fixture against Sparta Prague this season – Scott Marshall’s side will take on their Czech counterparts under the floodlights on Wednesday 24th October. Feyenoord and Leicester are our other opponents in the continental competition.
We are twice finalists of the Premier League Cup and were inaugural winners when the competition was launched in 2014; our group opponents are yet to be determined, but the provisional dates have been set for the games.
Our Under-23s’ provisional fixture list is laid out below – all dates, times and venues are subject to change.
