This season we are ready to celebrate our history. But we also want to make sure we focus on our future.
Engaging with our supporters during a tough period of pandemic restrictions and local lockdowns has admittedly been incredibly difficult. Since football first went behind closed doors, we have played 55 competitive matches - home and away - without hearing the cheers of our fans.
But with light at the end of this tunnel, we now want to re-engage our youngest group of fans, the next generation of loyal Royals.
We have already launched a ‘Fanfare for Future’ project which has seen the history of Reading Football Club being taught in a number of primary schools in the Royal Borough from the start of 2021 onwards.
And now our popular Young Royals membership club is returning for 2021-22 – and it is open to all Royals fans aged 12 and under.
To join the Young Royals this season, it will cost just £25 to sign up.
Every member will receive an exclusive Young Royals rucksack 🎒 and a special Young Royals lanyard along with a personalised member card for the 2021-22 season.
Every member will also be able to book onto a free Madejski Stadium tour (booked with the purchase of one paying adult) and we will also give Young Royals a forum to speak to the club on how they would like to see it run – we want to give our youngest fans a voice and listen to how we can improve the matchday experience for young fans coming back to the Madejski.
But, better than all of that…Young Royals will be given exclusive opportunities to take part in a series of ‘money can’t buy’ experiences. These will be developed and launched throughout the course of our milestone 2021-22 season, but are expected to include competitions to win items signed by our first team players, opportunities to take part in exclusive Q&A sessions with the stars of the senior side and the chance to potentially watch the team train and even meet the manager.
Of course, all those aged 12 and under can now renew their Season Ticket from just £23 in total – incredible value giving you access to every home league game played in front of fans for an average of just £1 per game!
That means you can sign up for a Season Ticket AND a Young Royals membership for our 150th anniversary campaign for less than £50 in total!
And whether you are a Season Ticket Holder or not - you can join the Young Royals NOW! To purchase your membership, simply go online and sign up!
Your welcome pack is expected to be available to collect in the week before our new season kicks off on Saturday 7th August 2021 - we will email you when the gifts are in stock in the Fanstore. Not able to collect it? No problem. We can post your rucksack and welcome gifts to you for a small delivery fee.
So help us celebrate our history. Be part of our future. Be a Young Royal.
