Club 1871 - South Stand

We are a fan group, trying to improve the atmosphere at the Madejski Stadium, focusing on supporting the team, making loads of noise, and making the Madejski an intimidating place for away fans to visit. 

One of the things that most will agree is that the Madejski could do with some flags and banners, celebrating our history and present. We want to be able to put on displays for Reading legends, and celebrate the players in our current squad. 

As a fan group, we rely on our fellow fans to help us make this happen. While we have plan for decorating the South Stand, and a funding goal that matches those ambitions, anything we receive beyond that will be used to spread our displays to neighbouring stands. The ultimate goal would be able to have huge displays for our biggest games in all 4 stands. We really appreciate anything you can donate. 

We will order limited amount of club 1871 pins and scarves to give away to anyone donating £10/£20 respectively. 

We expect to spend the £1500 on the following (approximate pricing):
£750 - Large flag to cover seats in the stand
£350 - Club1871 scarves (for £20 donation reward)
£150 - Club1871 badges (for £10 donation reward)
£250 - Further flags/banners for the stand

If you have any further questions about how we will go about spending the money raised, please contact us using the details provided below, or at our email address  We have opened a bank account in the Club1871 name to withdraw and spend all the funds, with multiple trustees from the group to ensure accountability.

We really hope you see this as an opportunity to improve the look of stadium and team, but most importantly, help create an atmosphere and stand displays that the fans can be proud of and get behind.
