Yongge Dai, Reading FC’s owner, has decided to offer free coaches to fans travelling to the 15 most distant away league matches.  

To take advantage of the offer, Royals fans have to be members of the Supporters' Trust At Reading.

Fans are often referred to as the 12th man and at Reading they want to make sure they bring the 12th man to away games.

However, travelling to several away games can be an expensive experience for fans. With that in mind, Reading’s owner, Yongge Dai, has decided to offer free coach travel to fans for 15 of Reading’s 23 away league games, including all of their most distant destinations.

This is another excellent example of the investment Mr Dai continues to make in helping this club evolve and achieve more success with the help of its loyal supporters.
