Our August fixtures, in preview

22 June 2018

Travelling Royals that go to every Championship match in 2018-19 will be racking up plenty of miles - 7,109 of them to be precise!

Using Madejski Stadium as our base, we've done the maths and worked out how far we'll be going in the name of the Royals cause in the upcoming campaign.

The three promoted teams from League One have added to the mileage with South Yorkshire side, Rotherham United, being the closest of the three to RG2!

With West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Swansea City all dropping back into the Championship, there are chances for loyal Royals to back the boys in grounds they may not have visited for a long time!

The departure of Sunderland from the second tier for the time being sees Middlesbrough become our longest round trip - at 516 miles.

Goalkeeper Ward extends Royals deal

22 June 2018

Following Fulham's promotion in May, Brentford is now our closest away day - always popular with travelling Royals, and it's around 35 miles from Madejski Stadium.

As we are one of the southernmost clubs in the second tier, we'll be spending plenty of time heading North this season!

Such is the concentration of clubs in the Midlands, Yorkshire and Lancashire - 16 of our opponents are based in Birmingham and above - so on average, we'll be travelling 309 miles per away match in 2018-19!

We've got ways of making the trips easier for you, with Supporters' Trust At Reading (STAR) offering travel to all Reading supporters. Keep your eyes peeled for when they announce details of travel for our first away games of the season via their website here.
