After a two season spell in the English Premier League from 2008 to 2008, Reading Football Club was relegated to the second tier of English soccer – the Fooball League Championship. The club has since qualified for the promotion playoffs twice but has failed to regain a place in the Premier League. Reading came closest at the end of the 2010/11 season when it fell to Swansea City by a score of 4-2 in the playoff final.
As The Royals looks towards another shot a promotion, the Reading FC PUMA 2011/12 kits have been launched. They will be worn for the first time during Reading’s pre-season which includes a couple of matches in Slovenia followed by friendlies against Northampton, Bristol Rovers and Swindon Town.
