Reading have announced that tickets have gone on sale for three upcoming pre-season friendlies.

Paul Ince has arranged six matches, of varying club size, in order to get his squad prepared for what promises to be a difficult campaign after three key stars have walked away on a free and only one goalkeeper has come through the door.

Kicking off next Saturday behind closed doors to Colchester United, Maidenhead United and former European champions Benfica will battle the Royals before a trio of matches take place in front of crowds.

On Saturday, July 16, Europa League semi finalists West Ham travel to the SCL Stadium.

Three days later Reading go to League Two side AFC Wimbledon for a midweek warm up match at Plough Lane before rounding off the sequence of matches by hosting Brighton and Hove in Berkshire.

Tickets for the two home matches are available for £10 in advance or £15 on the way, with an option of Google Pay and Apple Wallet tickets being trialled.

The Lower West and Sir John Madejski Stands will be open.
