Reading FC Sell-Out Initial Bradford City Ticket Allocation

Cup fever is clearly sweeping the Madejski Stadium as Reading fans have quickly snapped up the initial 2,709 seats at Bradford just after they went on sale to non-season ticket holders.

Tickets went on sale exclusively to season ticket holders on Friday morning and with a pricing structure of £15 for adults, £10 to concessions and just £5 for Children it promised to offset some of the difficulties that fans faced heading up to Yorkshire for a lunchtime 12.45pm  kick-off.

With tickets selling out within an hour of going on sale to non-season ticket holders there will be a fair few Reading fans disappointed this morning. However if you are cursing your luck, fear not! The club have confirmed that they'll be taking up their option of another 1,600 tickets available at the same prices, with exact selling details to be confirmed.

At the present time tickets also remain on sale for Bradford fans.

So it looks as if we very may well sell out our full allocation but given the non-rush by around 10,000 season ticket holders I'd strongly suspect that if you're a fan desperate for a ticket, that you'll be able to pick one up.

A few have raised concerns on social media that the club's usually used 'Royalty Points' scheme has been abandoned for this tie and to that I can only point you towards urzz1871's excellent debate on the scheme written here a few months back.

Regardless it's a fantastic show of support from the club's fans as we try and reach the FA Cup Semi-Final for the first time in 88 years.

****UPDATE*****

Tickets now back on general sale, with the club officially confirming they're selling the additional 1587 available to them.
