Reading FC to sell their training ground to Wycombe Wanders

Reading Football Club take another blow to their chances of survival not only in their EFL League One campaign but also their existence as a club. 

Owner Dai Yongge announced that he had put Bearwood Park, the training ground of Reading football club, up for sale in an effort to secure some income amidst the mounting debt at the club. 

League rivals Wycombe Wanderers then, alongside Reading, released a statement declaring their interest in buying the training facilities having been keen to develop their own for some time. 

The news was met with outcry from Reading supporters as it would mean the club would lose another key asset and could also be left without a location to train as they face their relegation battle head on. 

Reading Football Club is also for sale as Dai Yongge searches for potential buyers but the news of the impending sale of one of the clubs most valuable assets has seen a sharp decrease in interest from potential ‘angel’ investors. 

Reading remain under the threat of having more points deducted from them, having started the season in negative points, with six points being deducted from them so far this season. 

The ‘Royals’, as they are also known as, currently sit 18th in the league table, five points above the relegation zone. 

However, should Reading not be able to find new investment or owners, another club could follow Bury in disappearing into history. 

A fan protest group named ‘Sell before we Dai’ have organised protests and demonstrations against the owners, varying from a pitch invasion to petitions to throwing objects onto the pitch. 

Following the news of the impending sale of their training ground, ‘Sell before we Dai’ organised a protest outside of Adams Park, the home ground of Wycombe Wanderers. 

Fans throughout the footballing pyramid can only watch on powerless to see whether a club that was in the Premier League just 11 years ago will cease to be.
