The festive period...

As ever, the Christmas period will see plenty of football for Reading fans to take in! We get the festive season underway against Middlesbrough at home on 22nd December, before a short trip on Boxing Day to take on Millwall at The Den.

Another London journey follows on 29th December, with QPR the opponents at Loftus Road. 

New Year's Day will then see the visit of Paul Clement's former club, Swansea City, to Madejski Stadium as we round off the festive calendar.

International interventions...

With the inaugural UEFA Nations League getting underway in the upcoming season, there will be three international breaks across September, October and November, with Euro 2020 qualifiers in March.

Some of the Royals are likely to be involved with their countries, and as ever, we'll be following their progress on the international scene while there's a gap in league football.

Easter and the run-in...
