London Irish have denied rumours they are looking to leave the Madejski Stadium.
The Exiles have been playing at Reading FC's ground since 2000 but there were suggestions they were looking at a potential move to Brentford's Griffin Park. But a spokesman has denied these suggestions, telling SportsDirect News: "There's no truth in that. We have a contract with the Madejski Stadium until 2026, and that's how it will remain. That's where we'll continue to play."
And Irish also denied to the website that they the owners are looking at selling the club. Irish have struggled to fill the 24,161 capacity Madejski and registered an average attendance of 9,471 last term for their Aviva Premiership games.
