Reading FC Pre-Madejski Stadium Home Kits World Cup 1969-74 v 1994-96

It's the big one! Yes after 38 days of unbearable excitement and tension the final is here. Which is your favourite kit that we wore at Elm Park?


No real surprises that this kit made the final considering it's still on sale in the club shop. It initially went behind against our 1978-1981 Bukta kit before comfortable winning 69% of your votes. That was the lowest percentage of vote it had received in the competition showing its popularity.


The only thing that might be hold against this kit is the number of hoops it has. Modern era Reading kits tend to have six or so hoops unlike this one which has 10 hoops.

Our last of two kits made by Pelada. Does anyone know if Pelada still exists?

This kit defeated our other Pelada kit in the semi final with 60% of the vote. In the previous rounds it had received around 90% of the vote showing its favourites tag was well deserved.

This kit was infamous for the Auto Trader sponsor falling off as the season progressed. No new shirts every game back then. No, the players even had to share shirts as this was before Reading had squad numbers.
