Madejski Stadium, Behind East Stand

Owners offer free away travel to fifteen fixtures!

Great news – Reading FC and STAR are offering supporters the chance to go to Hull and back on 10th August for FREE. And not just Hull but 14 of the more distant away fixtures

It’s our first League away game of the season and owner Mr Yongge Dai has very generously offered to cover the coach travel costs – it would be £30 per person – so that we can have plenty of support at the KC Stadium. It’s a ground we’ve never yet won on so time to break that record.

STAR applauds this fantastic gesture and will be organising the coach bookings. In order to take advantage of this offer, supporters will need to be STAR members (you can join for £10 / £5 concessions for the whole season) and need to buy a match ticket. Let’s make it a great day out and a big support for the team. Coaches will leave Madejski Stadium at 7.45am that morning and pick up fans from West Street at 8am.

And if you don’t fancy Hull there are 14 other Championship venues you can travel to for FREE instead!

QUALIFYING FOR FREE TRAVEL

  • You must be a 2019-20 member of STAR and show your member card when booking. Member cards are not transferable
  • Membership cards and coach tickets will be checked before boarding the coach
  • You must have bought / buy a match ticket for the fixture, which may be checked when boarding the coach
  • You must have an RFC Customer number (we don’t want to be carrying opposition fans for free!)
  • If you book a ticket to travel free and don’t show up without giving notice ahead of departure you will not be allowed to use this free facility again

HOW AND WHEN CAN YOU BOOK?

  • You can book at STAR Base during our normal hours of operation or online via our website – star-reading-onlinetravel.ecwid.com/
  • We will normally start taking bookings four weeks in advance of the fixture. For capacity reasons online bookings will normally cease two weeks before the fixture.
  • STAR has a standing order for five coaches with Horsemans – enough for 250 supporters – and if we have sufficient early demand we can hire more. We will need to use our discretion at times – it would be wrong for all sorts of reasons to book a coach to Middlesbrough for just two people who decided to go at the last minute – it would be cheaper for them to fly!
  • Please note that for 8 nearest away grounds this season, and for cup-ties, STAR will still be charging coach fares to travel
