Thread: Reading Away FA Cup

  1. #1

    Reading Away FA Cup

    Granted it's short notice, the prices are really good for this game, and we've taken the full 15% allocation, hopefully we can take a big following.

    Fair play to them Royals on the prices. The way it should be bringing the game back to the fans.

    I just hope they don't change the time for the telly, always liked the Reading trips.

    Our pricing structure is superb. Would expect both teams to put out reserve teams. Of the 18 man squad that knocked out Blackpool 13 were from our Academy. Both teams then play twice including against each other in the six days after this game.

    And no one did anything about it. When they played at Elm Park, I can't remember the coppers ever taking any sort of preventative measures. They never had any clue how many were bringing or how we were getting there. There would be a lame response after it had already started kicking off and at least one pub had been done over. What were they thinking?

    What's the parking like near the stadium?

    If you are going Eastbound on the M4 towards Reading I would recommend Mereoak Park and Ride which takes five minutes to get to off the motorway. Just head for Basingstoke off the motorway for a mile or so. It means you avoid the traffic and get back onto the motorway after the game very quickly. If you use this the car park is free and you just pay for the bus to and from the ground. If you are travelling on your own just ask the bus driver for a return ticket to the Madejski. It will cost you £4.50. If you are coming with friends or family just ask for a family return to the Madejski and it costs a fiver which is pretty good.
    It takes around15 minutes for the bus to get from the car park to the stadium

    The only downside is there will be queues to get the bus back after the game of around twenty minutes. I use the service every other week and can’t fault it.

    If you get out quick at the final whistle you can get straight on the Mereoak shuttle bus. Some people walk it back...so long as you know the route.

    F1 shuttle bus from outside the train station or Mereoak park and ride by the M4 if coming by car. The latter is best for a quick getaway.

    Mereoak park and ride is your best bet and cheaper than parking near the stadium. Easy access from/to the M4.

    Well done 👍

    I walked it back a couple of years ago and got back after the bus but yep if you leave before the final whistle you can avoid the queues and get on the shuttle bus quickly

    Parking at the stadium was £15 a couple of years ago. I think it’s now £10 if you book in advance. I just use Mereoak park and ride as it’s so easy to access from the M4.

    Yep. It takes the stress out of having to drive in match day traffic. It’s very easy to use.

    Are there other, unofficial car parks near the stadium worth considering if not doing the park and ride?

    You could try the old Greyhound Stadium RG2 6GP which will cost you a tenner. It’s just off Bennett Road Roundabout.

    Only about 100 tickets showing on the website as still available - if correct, means about 3400 sold.

    I got mine off the Reading website and it’s print at home. Only bummer is sat with home fans so will have to keep quiet. No restriction on numbers either and cheaper.
