📺 Two more games picked for live Sky broadcast in December!

Norwich City (h) and Swansea City (a) selected as live games in December picks...

30 November 2020

Our good early form and the brand of football on show at the Madejski is set to attract the TV cameras again in December with two more games selected for live TV broadcast.

The Royals are live on Sky Sports three times during the course of this week alone - with our games at Sheffield Wednesday in midweek and the home clash against Nottingham Forest scheduled for broadcast to the nation and beyond.

And now our games against league leaders Norwich City (h) and then the Swansea City (a) game at the end of the month will both be shown live on Sky.

The Canaries are set to visit Madejski Stadium on Wednesday 16th December8pm (15 minutues later than originally scheduled).

Then the very last Championship game of 2020 will feature Reading's trip down the M4 to see the Swans in South Wales - this game had been re-scheduled for a 5pm kick-off on the Tuesday evening, but it is now going to be broadcast live on Sky Sports on Wednesday 30th December, kick-off 8pm.

With two more live Sky Sports games scheduled for this week, the Swansea City (a) game will be our eighth match in 14 fixtures that has been picked for broadcast to a wider audience during what is a fixture-frenzied end to 2020.

Our last meeting with Norwich saw Andy Rinomhota score a late, late equaliser at Carrow Road in a 2-2 draw that temporarily halted the Canaries' promotion push but also proved important in steering Reading away from danger near the foot of the table in April 2019.

And our last visit to the Liberty Stadium also resulted in a last gasp leveller for the Royals - Andy Yiadom finding the net in injury time to earn us a 1-1 draw in South Wales in September 2019.

The Royals won in front of the cameras on Saturday, deservedly dispatching Bristol City in the early kick-off at Madejski Stadium - courtesy of second half goals from Ovie Ejaria, Yakou Méïté and Lucas João.

And Veljko Paunović's side will be hoping for more points against very difficult opposition when they take on two cities live on Sky in December.

We are hopeful that restrictions allow us to welcome in some fans for our TV games against Nottingham Forest this weekend and indeed when Norwich come to RG2 in mid-December.

But away fans certainly won't be travelling to Swansea little more than 24 hours before the end of a turbulent 2020 - so while turnstiles remain closed to so many, we hope the opportunity to watch from the action from every TV angle will be good news for Royals supporters desperate not to miss a kick of the campaign.

However, these Sky Sports-selected fixtures will not be available to watch via iFollow of course. So be sure to make the latest changes in your calendars to give us your valuable support in what will be another two extremely tough games for the Royals.
