Reading FC Give Fans Free T-Shirts To Paint Wembley Blue And White

The club have today revealed they will be handing out 30,000 free t-shirts to create a hooped mosaic at Wembley.

Reading versus QPR on 30 April 2006 was a memorable day for Royals fans. We set a new record points total, saw our captain Graeme Murty score the winning goal from the penalty spot and lift the Championship trophy.

The whole day was one everyone there will never forget and one image that will always stick in the mind is every home fan holding cards to turn the whole Madejski Stadium into a sea of hoops.

Well now we'll get a similar memorable sight to behold after the club announced plans to give every Reading fan a free blue or white shirt at our FA Cup semi-final on Saturday against Arsenal. The club website explained how it will work below:

We have split both the lower and upper tiers in half to create four hoops from top to bottom, with the lower half of each tier sporting the famous royal blue colour that we are known for.

Your t-shirt will be on your seat and waiting for you once you have entered the stadium bowl, so make sure you put that on in plenty of time and show your true colours for the evening.

This will be the third time that Reading fans have created some form of blue and white hooped mosaic. The first time was in 2002 when we won promotion at Griffin Park. Let's hope this great move by the club once again inspires the Royals to create history.
