Reading: Club Profile
It seems like us and the Royals in the FA Cup go together like birds of a feather; paired three times in eight seasons. The most memorable occasion, perhaps, was our 1-0 win at their place during our 2011-2 FA Cup run.

Reading Travel Information – Distance: 63 miles
Getting to the Madejski Stadium is a simple affair by road, with the stadium pretty much located just off Junction 11 of the M4. From Stevenage, head south on the A1 and cut across on the A414 to join the M25 towards Heathrow Airport. At Junction 15, take the westbound M4.
It is around 23-and-a-half miles from the M25 to Junction 11, from where you need the A33 for Reading. Continue towards the town centre through three roundabouts, before taking the first exit at the fourth for Northern Way. Turn left onto Hoops Way and again onto Shooters Way.
If you want, there is parking at the ground. But this will cost you a tenner and is limited. It can also take ages to get out after the game. Booking in advance is the only way to be sure of a parking space on matchday, subject to availability.
The car park at the nearby hotel, meanwhile, is for guests only. There are, however, a few other options listed on the club website – together with cost. Park and Ride car parks will be the cheapest options. But it all comes down to personal choice on the day, to be fair.

Reading’s train station is located in the centre of the town, but connects with the stadium through the Fasttrack Park and Ride green bus. You could try the walk – but it is a three-mile trek and will take you the best part of an hour.
