This is a general thread to stick all the useful information about the forthcoming season (2019/2020) affecting Reading FC
Season starts on 3rd August.
Reading have to be away on 24th August due to the Reading festival.
Last time the 24th August was a Saturday the fixtures for August were
03 Aug - Ipswich (h)
06 Aug - bye LC1
10 Aug - Bolton (a)
17 Aug - Watford (h)
24 Aug - Blackpool (a)
27 Aug - Peterborough (a) LC2
31 Aug - Yeovil (a)
So basically I would say that there is a very strong likelihood that Reading will start with a home game with the opening month's fixture dates and cycle of home and away games being very similar to the above. Of course what ingenious rota the FL computer comes up with in the end might be very different so let the speculation begin and run for the next couple of months
7th September is the first international break for 2019/2020
The 1st round of the League Cup will be w/c 12th August
The Football League fixtures for 2019/2020 will be made public at 9am on Thursday 20th June 2019.
Subject to approval at the FL EGM this month (not sure when/if it has happened yet) the summer transfer window (technically due to open on 1st July) will close for Divisions 1 and 2 (PL and Championship) at 5pm on Thursday 8th August and on 31st August for Divisions 3 and 4 (Leagues 1 and 2).
