As far as I know they have been available for at least 2 seasons and maybe started when they changed to the new computer system. It was also possible to have cup tickets automatically sent to you for your ST seat and charged to your card the same way as the AST works (also hardly used).

I don't think they were heavily marketed but there was definitely mention of them 2 years ago with the ST renewal bumpf.

Certainly those who do have an AST know most of the others as there were only about 70 before and they are the people who tend to go to every away game rather than just a lot - which is just as well as you have to take every single ticket this season.

The home cups season ticket was not available for 2005/06, so I'm glad to see that it has been brought back for next season.

I agree. Just a shame I couldn't get one seen as I renewed my season ticket online!

They replied today saying that both are safe and have been allocated to me.

YAY!


Anyone else heard yet?

I have had two text messages a few days apart saying my season ticket is allocated, I was hoping one was the AST. but not sure now.

Away season tickets
Every supporter who has applied for an away season ticket has been successful.

Around 700 supporters have signed up, and the Club will be sending a short SMS text message very soon to confirm these purchases.

Please ensure Reading FC has your current mobile telephone number - you can update this information by visiting the 'Update Your Details' on the ticketing section by emailing memberservices@readingfc.co.uk with your customer number and mobile number.

You can still apply for away season tickets using the normal application form and submitting it to the Sales Centre.

Wasn't it only something like 100 people had an AST for last season though? That's a big increase as it is bb0118.

Text just received from RFC confirming the successful renewal of my away season ticket.

Having renewed my home ST on-line, I now have a new parking ST and a home cup ticket registration to go with the above.................all received via my postal application (registered, just in case :wink: )

So, credit where credit's due................well done to all concerned.

How many of us were AST's last season, i'm sure 100 is way too many, more like 30.

No more than 50 would be my guess.

Pretty sure the club said at some stage it was "about 70".
