Reading FC have announced that they will slightly alter their stance on ‘Twenty’s Plenty’, offering it only to club’s who reciprocate the deal.

Since 2016 the Royals have charged away members no more than £20 per adult, amongst the few in the division to do so.

However, in a statement made today it revealed that this is to stop- with Championship clubs having to commit in advance to offer Reading fans tickets at the same price in order to take advantage of the deal.

The statement read: “Since 2016, we have championed Twenty’s Plenty. However, despite our best efforts, very few other clubs in the Championship have followed suit in their pricing strategy. That has resulted in our travelling fans routinely paying well in excess of £20 for the privilege of watching the Royals on the road, while opposing clubs’ travelling fans have all paid £20 or less to follow their team to the Select Car Leasing Stadium.

“For clarity’s sake, clubs are only allowed to charge away fans the equivalent price that they charge their own supporters in a comparable section of their stadium. So by keeping matchday ticket prices so low at Reading, we have also been committed to keeping prices for visiting supporters at the same level.

“In 2022-23, adult matchday ticket prices will, in some sections, be elevated slightly above the £20 mark – meaning we will now be permitted to set the equivalent price to away fans.

“However, every Championship club will be given the opportunity to offer their fans £20 tickets when their team visits RG2…but only if they commit in advance to a reciprocal arrangement for our loyal away fans in the reverse fixture.

In the past travelling Royals have had to pay upwards of £40 to watch their side on the road, more than the Premier League cap of £30.
