How to book tickets – You will need to act fast!

The club will be buying a bulk number of tickets which will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. These seats are all situated together. We will place a ‘top-up’ order on Monday 13th after we find out that the ladies are through to the final.

Order your tickets early to guarantee your place in the main Blue Army block. Top up seats will not be with the main Blue Army block.

To book tickets email fundraising@readinghockeyclub.org.uk
Details to include:
• your name,
• The number and type of tickets required e.g. adult x2 / Under 18 x1

We will then email you back to confirm your request has been received and you will be given a reference number along with the payment instructions.

You will need to pay for your tickets as soon as you receive the confirmation order. If you order / request tickets then you will have to pay for them (even if you change your mind).

The evening of Sunday 12th is your last opportunity to order. All tickets will need to be paid for by the 20th Jan.

We know this is short notice, but it at least guarantees us blocks / sections of seats.

You can always organise your own tickets, they can be bought from ticketmaster (these tickets are subject to a booking fee and postage), alternatively tickets on the door, but will cost more and they will not be near the Blue Army.


If you want help coordinating cars or are interested in travelling as a group by train let us know and we will organise you.

Looking the part

As with any invasion, we need to look the part. To increase our presence and our chance of getting on TV we would love everyone to wear Reading colours. Face paints and temporary tattoos will be available if you don’t have your own and want to join in!
This will be the first mass Onesie outing!!!!
