Festive matchday magic at the Madejski for all on Derby day

Rodeo reindeer, dodgems and candy floss in the Christmas Village when the Rams come to town on Saturday 21st December…

10 December 2019

All we want for Christmas…is you.

The Royals take on the Rams at home at 3pm on Saturday 21st December and Madejski Stadium is going to feel more festive than ever for fans coming to back the boys and make some noise this Christmas.

On the pitch, we want three points.

Off the pitch, there will be so much festive fun on offer. So what can loyal Royals look forward to? Well…

Madejski Stadium will be host to a Christmas Village! Located outside the Eamonn Dolan Stand and open to fans from 1pm, the Village will be the hub of our festive entertainment for the afternoon.

On offer in the Village will be free-to-ride dodgems for the first time! The Championship is always full of bumps in the road, but these are bumps our fans can truly enjoy!


And supporters will be able to step into Santa’s shoes for a moment as we offer you the chance to ride our Rodeo Reindeer! Father Christmas has to stay on board his sleigh all through Christmas Eve…any longer 30 seconds clinging on these antlers will be impressive.

The Village will be packed with a host of stalls and stands offering refreshments, including popcorn and candy floss as we urge everyone to get into the Christmas spirit on the last weekend before the big day.

For the little ones, we will have an Indoor Activity Area. And for the grown-ups, it will be irish coffees, mulled wine and free mince pies all round.

The Moving On choir will also be at the game to entertain all with some Christmas classics between 1.30pm and 2.15pm.


And, if that isn’t already enough, we are also offering one lucky supporter the opportunity to experience the game itself in style with an amazing upgrade to their ticket. All attending our penultimate home game of 2019 - whether that's as a Season Ticket holder or a match-ticket holder - will get the chance to win four places in Club 106 hospitality.

Alongside all our Club 106 guests on the day, the winner will be able to visit Santa’s Grotto, enjoy some festive face painting and he or she will receive an early Christmas present - a signed first team shirt will be waiting for the winner.

To enter, all you have to do is fill in your details here. The winner will be selected on Wednesday 18th December 2019.
