Thinking of going to watch the football? Here’s how to support Reading FC in person

Looking for something to do, other than drinking in Park Bar or watching Netflix? Why not take a trip to the Madejski stadium and support Reading FC – it’s surprisingly cheaper and easier than you might think. 


Tickets for Mens’ 1st team matches start around £23 for championship games, and upcoming matches include opponents such as Leeds United, Stoke City, Hull and Bristol City. However, all Women’s home games at Madejski have ticket prices of £6 online – you can even get a season ticket for just £35. Upcoming home fixtures include Brighton & Hove Albion Women FC in April. 


Reading Womens’ FC is also the home of Fara Williams MBE, the centre-mid with over 140 England caps and 40 goals for the national team.  


Getting to the Madejski Stadium itself is easy too. From the station, simply take a Greenwave Park & Ride green bus which takes you directly to the Stadium. There are also F1 Reading Station Shuttle Buses on match days, which run from outside the station and are only £2 return. The F33 match day shuttle bus also runs through Lower Earley, from the University’s Earley Gate to the Stadium itself. Boost fares for students are £2.50 for a single, £3 for a return. 


If you’re bored of waiting for the next Union night to come roundtry going to a live match instead!
