Cityzens to compete in virtual cup
Updated: Nov 26, 2020
Reading City Football Club will compete in the Football in Berkshire Invitational Virtual Cup, with the first round getting underway on Wednesday 11th November 2020.
With grassroots football activity suspended following new national restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 coming into effect on Thursday 5th November, the non-league football community has had to come up with other ways of keeping busy.
Football in Berkshire, a site dedicated to everything about and related to football in the Royal County of Berkshire has very kindly brought back its popular virtual cup tournament, which saw local clubs compete against each other during the last lockdown.
Last time around the Cityzens made it to the second round, but we'll hopefully go further in this tournament.
The Cityzens will kick off their cup campaign on Wednesday 11th November at 5pm, having been drawn at home to Bracknell Town and District Sunday League Division One side Bigshot FC, in order to progress we'll need your vote.
How it works
Cup ties in the Football in Berkshire Invitational Virtual Cup will be decided by Twitter Polls which will run for four hours, the side with the most votes will progress.
How do I vote
You'll need access to a Twitter account and then you'll need to keep an eye on our official feed @ReadingCityFC on Wednesday evening for a link to the poll, once the poll is live you'll just need to click on the team who you'd like to vote for.
If you don't have a Twitter account, please spread the word and tell people who do and help us progress to the next round.
