Where In The World Are Reading Fans?

Sam Mansfield, who followed Reading for 12 months in Australia, is intrigued to know where Loyal Royals are situated across the globe.

Caversham, Cardiff, Cuba?

Earley, Exeter, El Salvador?

It’s always intrigued me as a Reading fan to know where fellow supporters live. It’s a bit nosey and nerdy I know, but I thought that during these unprecedented times of zero football, I would set about to discover where fans call home, whether that be domestically or internationally.

Has that car in the Greyhound Stadium car park travelled from Scotland? Is that Heathrow-bound plane overhead from Barcelona carrying a couple of Club 1871 season ticket holders? Is the Penzance train pulling into Reading Station platform 11 full of Cornish Royals?

I know that we now have an ever-growing fan base in Kenya thanks to Ayub Masika and think it would be great to display on a world map where Royals fans are located. Maybe there’s an avid fan in Iran because of Saeid Ezatolahi? A diehard Royal in rural Liechtenstein thanks to Sandro Wieser? A supporters’ club in Slovenia because of Jure Travner’s influence?

Closer to home and the Madejski Stadium, is it from the north, east, south or west of RG2 that people descend on a matchday from? Which suburb of Reading is home to most fans?

You never know, there may be a fellow Royals fan living right under your nose. This could be a matchmaking service for Reading FC lift share or the start of a new international supporters club!

Please take part in the survey by sending us your UK or international location and, if you happen to follow the Royals from further afield, a bit about yourself. You can get in touching by replying to the tweet or Facebook post for this article, or emailing thetilehurstend@gmail.com.
