Ticket Prices Set For Live TV Arsenal Game

Reading's fourth round League Cup game at home against Arsenal, on Tuesday 30th October, will be shown live on Sky TV. With the cameras turning up, and TV schedules to think of, the game will kick-off at 7:45pm instead of the usual 8pm.

Top marks to the clubs for sorting out some reasonable ticket prices as well. It might only be the League Cup, and a game in which Reading will be favourites to exit the tournament in, but it must have been tempting to cash in after Arsenal were drawn at home. Advance ticket prices for adult season ticket holders are just 15 pounds. Non-season ticket holders will need to pay an extra fiver, and it's a fiver more again if you pay on the day. Children are ten pounds cheaper than adult prices and other concessions are a fiver cheaper than full price. The prices should mean a reasonable crowd. Arsenal have been allocated the entire South Stand.

Meanwhile, we've updated the match report for Reading's impressive third round victory over QPR that set up Arsenal's visit to the Madejski Stadium. Neil Maskell's full report is now up and make sure you cast your vote on Reading's man of the match.
