Important information for Reading trip

11 January 2020

Nottingham Forest return to Sky Bet Championship action at Reading on Saturday and attached is some important information ahead of the trip to the Madejski Stadium.

Saturday's game is a 3pm kick-off and Reading have created this handy Away Supporters' Guide which will help you prepare for your trip.

A message from Reading Football Club

Reading are looking forward to welcoming Forest fans to the Madejski Stadium and Reds supporters will be seated in the South Stand. Forest fans are reminded that the Madejski is an all-seater stadium however Reading understand that in times of excitement, fans will want to stand up and celebrate or offer support to their team.

Please be aware that Reading stewards will be very keen to keep the gangway clear as the away stand is steep and they want to minimise the chance of someone falling down and injuring themselves or fellow fans. The clear gangway policy is enforced around the stadium and both home and away fans will be treated the same.

Reading provide a family area for Forest fans just behind the wheelchair area and any other Reds fans who wish to sit can do so in front of the wheelchair and ambulant disabled area. This means that those away fans who are unable to stand or do not wish to stand for long periods do not have their views blocked. The seating is reserved and Reading will have customer service staff and stewards who will be on hand to assist and answer any questions that you may have.

A reminder that as Forest have sold all of their ticket allocation, there will be no away tickets available to purchase on the day and if you do not have a ticket for the away end, please do not purchase in the home area as anyone who is outed will sadly be asked to leave.

Collecting tickets

Forest supporters can collect their pre-paid tickets from the main ticket office at The City Ground until 6pm on Friday.

All uncollected tickets will be sent to Reading for collection from the ticket office located in the South Stand at the Madejski Stadium from 1:30pm on Saturday.

Please note that all supporters collecting pre-paid tickets & duplicates must provide Forest with the name of the person collecting and this person must show their own valid photo ID when collecting.

Reading will not release tickets to any supporter who fails to comply with this instruction. Failure to do so is at the risk of the supporter, as it will result in the tickets being held back by Reading. In such cases, no refunds will be given.

Official coach travel

Forest's official supporters coaches are due to depart from the Brian Clough Stand car park for the Madejski Stadium at 10:30am. There is limited car parking available for you here, so please get to The City Ground as early as you can to secure parking and make sure you don’t miss the coach!
