The coronavirus outbreak has led to all games in the Premier League, EFL and Women’s Super League being suspended until April 3 - at least.

It means Reading’s first-team, women’s and academy matches are postponed with league authorities planning to reschedule them when possible.

The Royals were due to face Stoke this weekend, Derby on Tuesday night and Brentford at home on March 21 before an international break that has also largely been wiped out. The trip to Luton on April 4 is, in theory, the senior side’s next match.

As for the women’s team, an international break meant they weren’t due to play Arsenal until March 22 anyway but that game is now off, along with the game versus Liverpool a week later.

The EFL have also confirmed the abandonment of academy fixtures, which is expected to include the Royals’ matches. Reading’s Under-23s facing Sunderland on Monday and Norwich on April 3. The Under-18s have upcoming fixtures against Arsenal and Aston Villa during this period.

Please stay tuned to TTE for all the latest news on fixture rearrangements as it breaks, and we endeavour to produce a podcast on Monday as planned.
