Announce kit. Announce kit. Announce kit.
Nearly, but not quite yet. On Thursday 25th July 2019, Royals fans will get their first glimpse of our home and away kits for the new season, designed and produced by our new Official Technical Partner, Macron.
Blue, red, green, yellow, purple, pink…African violet? You’ll have to wait just a little longer for the reveal of our new home and away kits. But both home and away shirts will sport the branding of our new partner, Casumo, following the announcement of a new partnership between the Royals and the online casino operator.
The first team will debut the new-look home shirt when they compete in their final pre-season friendly of the summer - against Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at Madejski Stadium on Sunday 28th July.
Before the Europa League winners make the short journey down the M4 from Stamford Bridge, the Royals will be wearing a Macron-designed pre-season strip for friendlies on home soil against Southend United and Peterborough United as well as all six fixtures out in Spain this month.
This pre-season kit will not be worn by the first team beyond the hectic pre-season schedule and is not expected to be made available for fans to purchase - we intend instead to donate any surplus pre-season kit to our Community Trust for our very successful Reading FC Deaf squad to use throughout the course of their upcoming 2019-20 campaign.
