We’ve made our best start to a league season for 35 years. Three straight wins, nine points already amassed and we’re on top of the pile in the early stages. The only thing missing is you.
No doubt about it, our perfect start to 2020-21 would have felt even better if our fans had been with us home and away, roaring on the Royals and joining in with our celebrations at each final whistle. And we’re hoping that day comes as soon as possible, when we can open the doors to Madejski Stadium once again.
If you were a Season Ticket holder in 2019-20, you have until Friday 2nd October (5pm) to activate the first part of your renewal to get a Season Ticket for 2020-21.
Pauno and the team have had a great start to the campaign… as soon as our most loyal supporters are able to attend, we’re sure you’ll want to be a part of it.
So make sure you’ve committed by Friday by paying the ‘retainer fee’ – a down-payment on your Season Ticket for when we are able to offer matches at full capacity again… you won’t need to pay the remainder until we know how many games we’re able to offer. All pro-rata prices in 2020-21 are based on the 2019-20 Season Ticket prices, which have been frozen for another year.
This is what you get from making the initial renewal payment before 5pm this Friday…
- Your regular seat reserved for when we return to full capacity
- Priority for limited-capacity games when fans first make a return to Madejski Stadium
- Cheapest seats available for those individual games, available at pro-rata prices (eg. £16.30 for Adult tickets)
- ‘Retainer fee’ deducted from the outstanding balance when we can sell full capacity Season Tickets for the remaining games
- No risk of your deposit going to waste – if guidelines don’t allow us to host full capacity matches in 2020-21, your down-payment rolls over to next season. You won't lose a penny - your initial payment will go towards retaining your seat, whether that's this season or next!
‘Retainer fee’ prices
|Season Ticket category||2020-21 initial payment|
|65 & Over||£45|
|18 to 24||£35|
|17 & Under||£25|
|12 & Under||£10|
How to buy
All renewals should be made online via ticketing.readingfc.co.uk.
You will need to have an active Royals Account in order to renew your Season Ticket (or renew on behalf of friends or family members). Click here to log in to your Royals Account, or for more information.
If you are a registered disabled supporter you should also renew online but email email@example.com to request for your personal assistant ticket to be processed for you. You will need to include your name and Supporter ID.
New Season Ticket Holders
But what about new supporters? Don’t we want to attract new fans to Madejski Stadium? Yes we do. While reduced capacities are in place, the club strongly feel it is important to prioritise our most loyal fans and ensure their loyalty to the club last season is repaid.
However, we remain optimistic that there will be provision for new Season Ticket Holders too – potentially during reduced capacity fixtures (depending on our reduced capacity maximum numbers and ST renewal uptake). Further information on how to purchase new Season Tickets will be communicated in due course.
