Fans' Events organised throughout the season give a unique opportunity to meet RFC Staff, Players and Former Players.
Throughout the football season we organise a number of our own Fans' Events as well as support events held by other organisations. Normally all STAR organised events are free to members.
Among our most popular events are the Fans' Forums. These involve evenings where members can have an opportunity to hear and question RFC staff and players, past and present, on a range of audience led topics in an informal atmosphere away from the match day pressures.
Previous Events - Fans' Forum with Graeme Murty and Kevin Watson chaired by Ade Williams on 13th February.
STAR AGM & Players Fans' Forum 6th September
The 10th Annual General Meeting of the Supporters Trust At Reading was held on Thursday 6th September in the Princess Suite at the Mad Stad. The minutes of the meeting can be downloaded here.
Following the formalities of the AGM members took part in our Fans' Forum with guests Jason Roberts, Ian Harte and Nicky Shorey which was introduced by Sir John Madejski. The audience were entertained for the next hour through questions they were able to put to the three players giving a fascinating insight on a wide variety of topics from squad selection, dressing room habits, players agents to aspirations for post-playing careers.
Previous event - RFC on BBC Radio 5 Live Sport from the Mad Stad
Reading FC hosted the BBC Radio 5 Live Sport programme at the Madejski Stadium on Thursday 16th August before an invited audience of STAR members.

STAR Community Project - Special Guests At Blackpool Game
On Saturday 24th March nine very excited children were guests of STAR in an event as part of our STAR is 10 celebrations. For one young lad it was to be a very special afternoon as he would be experiencing what it was like to be an official match day mascot. The children had arrived with parents or grandparents to watch the Blackpool game and during a brief tour of the team dugout met Reading striker Jason Roberts and Blackpool manager Ian Holloway.
STAR Community Project - 2 Day Soccer School
As part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations, STAR sponsored a number of children with special needs to two days of football coaching by Reading FC. Around 25 children attended the two day event held at the Avenue School in Reading during April. The event also saw a visit from Jason Roberts who took part in some heading practise with some of the trainees as well as a question and answer session.
Details and photographs from the day can be downloaded here.
