All you need to do on Saturday is purchase your copy of our matchday programme, The Royal, from any of our sellers all around Madejski Stadium for just £3.

Once you have your programme, 50 lucky issues will each have a winning message and a unique code, which you will need to take to our Fanstore along with your copy of The Royal to claim your prize.

Alongside this fantastic giveaway, your programme is crammed full of all you need to know as Reading get set to take on Birmingham City on Saturday afternoon.

Following his 250th appearance for the club in the last home game against Leeds, we look back at a selection of Garath McCleary's standout moments in a Reading shirt.


You'll get a comprehensive look at Saturday's opponents, Birmingham City, as we look at their last starting line-up, their last Championship match and plenty more as the Royals get ready to face Pep Clotet's side.

Following his hat-trick heroics last time out, George Pușcaș features as the cover star for Saturday's issue - and you'll get the pre-match thoughts of Mark Bowen and skipper, Liam Moore.

Here's a sneak peek at the captain's pre-match notes for the weekend: 

A very special mention has to go to George Pușcaș. He’s had a difficult time recently, he probably would have liked to have scored a few more goals, but he’s persevered with it, worked hard and done what the manager’s asked of him. If you keep working hard in training and in games, eventually your luck will turn.

That sums up football, really. He hadn’t scored for a while, then he scored three in five minutes. Everyone was absolutely delighted for him in the dressing room afterwards, it was a special moment for him and the whole team, so hopefully that can spur us all on now.

As always, there's plenty to see and read ahead of kick-off, well worth a look on Saturday for only £3.
