Reading Football Club are paying for free coach travel for all of their supporters to the FA Cup quarter final at Manchester City.

The game takes place on Sunday 13th March, kick off 4:45pm and 2,800 Royals are expected to descend on the City, free of charge. Nevertheless, fans will of course have to pay for their tickets.

Chairman Sir John Madejski told their club website…

‘Here at the club we would like to offer our loyal fans free coach travel, as a just reward for your continued loyalty.’

‘Everyone is absolutely delighted with how the team have done and we want to continue our FA Cup journey against Manchester City. With so many supporters backing us at the game, I know it will be a fantastic occasion.’

‘Our support at Everton in midweek was fantastic, and with a full away contingent at Eastlands, we will be giving our team the very best chance of making more history.’

‘We are all in it together, and we continue to strive for success both in the FA Cup and the Championship. We have a number of very important games between now and the end of the season and with our supporters, players and staff acting as one I know anything is possible.’


The 69-year-old millionaire finished off by saying…

‘We fully understand that times are hard at the moment and we believe this is a fitting gesture to our loyal supporters. We value our fans immensely, and we want this quarter final to be another great occasion in our history.’

The winners will play their semi-final match at Wembley Stadium.
