Jackson Corner I would like to think the home kit will be a homage to the first kit worn by Reading FC.
STAR Liaisontidus_mi2 As we were founded on Christmas Day 1871, I take it our Boxing Day match next year will be the big 150th anniversary game. Hopefully it will be a better spectacle than the travesty that was the 2-1 home defeat to Burton on our 500th Madejski Stadium game celebration.
There's no actual evidence to support this claim - even though it's repeated in various internet places that doesn't make it true.
In fact Christmas Day is one of the least likely days for a large group of young, Christian, church-going men to leave their family homes and parents on a dark afternoon / evening to go out and found a football club!
Many have looked for an actual foundation date but none have found one.
If a particular and true date is desired for celebration purposes then 21 February - the date of our first match in 1872 - would probably be the one to go for.
Nameless Optimistic that the club will do a good job on this. What I have seen on the mural is impressive and will be interesting to see what else they have planned.
Quite amazing that fans of the newer clubs accuse us of having no history .....
royalp-wePepe the Horseman Saw someone on twitter suggest a gold and white hooped third kit. That would be incredible x
Meh. Looks like skiddy diddy’s.
