A brief history of the Madejski Stadium

Officially opened on 22 August 1998, the Madejski Stadium is home to Reading Football Club. This prestigious stadium’s modern, all-seater bowl design can hold up to 24,200 people on matchdays. Over the years, the Madejski has staged a number of international sporting events and major concerts, including the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Elton John. 

The stadium’s main stand, The West Stand, has a capacity of 7,579 including 15 wheelchair spaces. The stadium also houses a first-class Conference Centre and a four-star deluxe hotel – perfect for putting delegates up in before, during and after events.


More than a conference centre

Our 32 event spaces offer flexible seated capacity for up to 500 people, free WiFi and a dedicated support team of event co-ordinators and AV technicians. The stadium complex also houses 2,000 complimentary parking spaces plus a 4-star hotel with 201 bedrooms, a fine-dining restaurant, leisure and spa facilities.

Located less than a mile from Junction 11 of the M4, we have excellent transport links for visitors arriving by car. For those arriving by train, Reading Train Station is just 27 minutes from London Paddington with up to 12 connections per hour. There is also a direct bus connection between Reading and London Heathrow.
