Welcome to STAR

Welcome to the Supporters Trust At Reading (STAR), a non-profit making, democratically accountable Supporters’ Trust registered with the Financial Conduct Authority. Staffed and organised by volunteer Reading FC supporters our formal title is Reading Football Supporters’ Society Limited and we are the successor to the Reading Football Supporters’ Club (est. 1930). You can find out more information about our organisation in the About STAR page.

Safe Standing Petition to be debated 25th June

The great majority of Reading fans we recently polled believe there should be provision for ‘safe standing’ at Premier League and Championship matches. STAR supported the petition to have the issue considered for debate in Parliament. The petition had over 111,000 signatures and is expected to be debated on 25th June and can be watched on Parliament TV. You can find out more about the petition and the Government response at https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/207040.

 

Wellsteeds At The Treable - 2017-18 STAR Predictor Competition Results

The final scores have been totted up for the STAR Predictor 2017-18 competition for which there were 150 entries. First prize (£150) goes to Mark Wellsteed on 1266 points, second and third prizes go to Allan Wellsteed with two entries, each of which achieved 1250 points and prizes of £75 and £50. The £75 prize for the best early bird (pre-season) entry goes to Gareth Pritchard on 1203 points.

Best performance by a STAR Board member (£0) goes to Roger Titford on 1179 points. As no-one ever seems to want to collect the OUFC mug for last place we won’t be awarding it this year. Apologies to this year’s prize winners for putting the 2016-17 prize structure on the last update; this has now been corrected to reflect what was on the 2017-18 entry form. The full list of results can be downloaded here.

New Season Ticket Renewals Announced

The season ticket prices for 2018-19 are very fair and in line with what STAR expected. It’s good to see attractive new pricing for primary school children with the Under 12s tickets and that the wider 18-24 age band for young adults has continued. Adult prices are frozen again and, compared with many Championship clubs, Reading supporters appear to have a good deal.

STAR sponsored Reading FC Deaf Team were awarded with The Mayor of Reading Team Award at the Reading Sports Personality Awards 2017 held at the Hilton Hotel on Sunday 25th March. The award was presented by The Mayor of Reading, Councillor Rose Williams,  and represents a great finish to another successful season

Pete Vickery, who acts as liaison between STAR and the Teams, represented STAR at the evening award dinner.

Ahead of the presentation the team had a good weekend of football, winning all their three games in round four of the BOBi League. This raises them to second place in the league. They were also playing in Bristol in the second round of the FA People's Cup, which they also won taking them through to the final in April at St. Georges Park.

You can find out more about the Reading FC Deaf Team and their fixtures in the panel on the right.

Home Programme Stock Surplus

We are in the midst of sorting our huge stock of old programmes into something much more manageable and useful. It is likely we will have to dispose of some bulk stocks of home programmes from the 1970s to 2000s. It would be great if we could give some unsorted batches away to schools or old people’s homes or anyone else who would find them useful / help spread some goodwill for the club. If you think you can help please get in touch via media@star-reading.org.


That's it for this season. Thank you for your support.
