We know that there’s nothing quite like being at Madejski Stadium for those all-important matches. But while football gears up to return behind closed doors, we’re encouraging you to do the next best thing – become an ‘armchair fan’ and kit out the room in blue and white!
Next week, all of our Season Ticket holders will be supplied with promotional codes to redeem within iFollow, allowing you to watch games in the run-in for absolutely free. And all other fans, in the UK and around the world, will also have the option to purchase a Match Pass for individual games.
It’s a change for all of us, and needless to say we can’t wait for the moment that we can welcome you back to Madejski Stadium. In the meantime, the best bet is to embrace the games from home with iFollow, using your computer, tablet or phone… and to really get in the mood, to decorate that space at home where you’ll be following our fortunes.
Get some old programmes splayed out across your table, drape a blue and white scarf from the curtain rail, put on your Kingsley slippers and make sure you enjoy your drink of choice from a Royals-branded pint glass.
While your Royals crest-clock is counting down the minutes towards the 3pm kick-off against Stoke City next Saturday, dig through the cupboards for any bits of paraphernalia that can help you transform your living room into a makeshift hub of Royals fandom – whether it’s a blue or white flag from that special night in the play-offs against Fulham, an old shirt from the 106 season or anything else… get up for the final few fixtures!
Don’t forget that our Fanstore is still delivering – it’s not yet open at Madejski Stadium, but you can help to kit out your kitchen, lounge or bedroom with all manner of knickknacks by visiting our online store at fanstore.readingfc.co.uk.
And make sure you send your pictures to us on Twitter by tweeting to @ReadingFC – let us see where you’ll be watching!
