Reading season ticket holders are being invited to a 'Pre-Season Social' at the Purple Turtle next month.

A difficult summer for the club after relegation to League One, with financial issues and a large squad overhaul, supporters are being treated to an evening of entertainment at the town's iconic venue.

Celebrating their 30th anniversary, the venue is a key part of the culture of the town.

Famously, the likes of Sir John Madejski and Brian McDermott flocked to the 'Turtle' after winning promotion to the Premier League in 2012- along with hundreds of jubliant supporters.

600 season tickets (male orΒ female teams)-Β at Β£7 per head-Β will be treated to a DJ, special guests and a 'unique surprise.'

This comes just two days before the season opener against Peterborough United on Saturday, August 5.
