Reading Away Allocation
« on: December 30, 2018, 08:23:08 PM »
Heard a rumour yesterday on way to game that we will not get a full allocation at Reading. Have other teams this season been given the whole end as usual?

Yep, its reduced to 2,219 as they've opened up more seats to home fans.

Utterly pointless opening it given half the ground is always empty. Their prerogative of course and their own lost revenue.

Does seem odd that their highest attendance is 8000 off their capacity.

Had a quick look at this yesterday and I don't think k they've played anybody yet that would have taken the full allocation anyway, so fingers crossed?

They've got a couple of hundred fans on the other side of the away end as a 'singing section', they're proper cringe. We will only get 2200.

I was stood right next to them last season - Silly little kids trying to make eye contact with you for the entire game.

Modern football I guess.  Back in the 70s, the idea was to try to keep rival fans apart wherever possible - Nowadays, they try to get them as close to each other as possible "to create an atmosphere".  Pathetic.

I know that income from paying customers isn't great but given they could well be dropping a division next season, perhaps we could put a bit of pressure on them and secure a bigger allocation?

Taken from Readings website:

"In order to accommodate Club 1871, visiting supporters for the 2018-19 season will have a maximum allocation of an estimated 2,600 tickets for league fixtures"

can see myself  missing  out on this one as only have 5 away credits this  season, so any spare I will snap up.

Love you all.

One of the worst away trips around.
