READING fans will have the opportunity to follow their team up and down the country with the clubs owner pledging to cover the cost of travel for 15 away trips.
Reading owner Mr Yongge Dai, will fund travel for away supporters for 15 of Reading’s furthest away trips this season, covering the vast majority of their 23 league travels for the upcoming season.
What usually would have cost fans more than £350, will now be paid for due to the gesture of the owner, with trips to Barnsley, Birmingham, Blackburn, Derby County, Huddersfield, Hull City, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, Stoke City, Swansea City, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan all being covered.
The Royals first away trip of the season sees them travel to Hull City on August 10 in their second Championship game of the season, before a much shorter journey to face Wycombe Wanderers in the EFL Cup just three days later.
Chief Executive Nigel Howe said: “This is another excellent example of the investment Mr Dai continues to make in helping his club evolve and achieve more success with the help of its loyal supporters,”
“He recognises the commitment our fans make every season to support the team, home and away, rain or shine, win, lose or draw, and he personally came to me to ask how he can help reward that commitment.
“Working closely with STAR, I’m delighted this initiative will mean more away fans supporting the players on their travels this season.”
