It will be the Beeb who broadcast the tie against the Eagles, kicking off at 7:55pm on BBC One. Fans can look forward to a packed Madejski Stadium for tackling the Premier League side, managed by former Royal Alan Pardew, under the lights on a primetime spot, surely generating a cracking atmosphere.
Tickets will go on sale immediately for season ticket holders, at £15, and £20 for non-season ticket members from March 1. Season ticketers will be able to buy for one friend, also, and have their normal seats reserved until March 2.
In related news, Reading's trip to Brighton and Hove Albion scheduled for that weekend will now take place on Tuesday March 15. As a result, it has been dropped from Sky's coverage, having been planned as a Friday night TV game itself.
The other quarter-finals will take place across the following weekend, with Everton v Chelsea on the Saturday evening kick-off time for BBC One. Hull or Arsenal will host Watford on Sunday lunchtime and Manchester United play West Ham United at 4pm that same day, both of which are on BT Sport.
