Make sure you check out all the matchday entertainment at the Madejski tomorrow! It is sure to be a great day for our first home game of the season. The sun is even supposed to make a little appearance


Pre-match entertainment is as good as ever with the Bible Code Sundays performing live in the Craic from 1pm. They are huge favourites, so get there early as this is sure to get busy. They are also playing post match, so make sure you stick around after the game.

As always we haven’t forgotten the little ones. Kids can join in with the fun too in Diggers Pound where they can enjoy face painting and even a bouncy castle. Those who are in the south stand family zone, will want to be in their seats by 2pm.Why? Eek the Giant Leprechaun will be there to entertain the kids with games as well as our new balloon modeler. Definitely not one to miss!

Our new sponsor, Upham Brewery, has not disappointed and will be offering a 50p discount per pint on the new Punter ale per pint in their outdoor unit in the East Stand. Make sure to visit their website, download a voucher, pop by and give them a nice warm London Irish welcome.

Those who came to the London Double Header, will probably remember the new GAP passing challenge which will be taking place outside the Megastore before the game. Come along and have a go and put your skills to the test.

After the GAP passing challenge why not move on to take a picture with the scrum outside the Megastore? Here, you will also be in with a chance to win TWO FREE tickets to our next home game courtesy of Crest Nicholson.

Ridgeway cars will be over the near the ticket office. Head over to take a look at the cars on display.

Greenflag are offering their services and providing health checks for all supporters in the car park for free!
