QPR Set to Announce Plans for New 35,000 Seater Stadium

Super Hoops set for Loftus Road departure?

QPR will reveal plans for a new 35,000-seat stadium within weeks.

The Hoops’ Loftus Road ground is the smallest in the top flight.

And chairman Tony Fernandes tweeted yesterday that the club have made a “great first step” in its attempts to obtain a new stadium.

Plans are at an advanced stage, according to sources close to QPR, and there will be an announcement before the start of the season.

Whilst clearly QPR fans would prefer to remain at the stadium they have called home for 95 years they begrudgingly admit that the financial windfall that would come from moving to a bigger stadium is too much to ignore.

Super Hoops chairman Tony Fernandes has put his money where his mouth is since he took control of the West London club, pumping in lots of money to the club and handing boss Mark Hughes significant transfer funds and if the club want to continue to remain in the top tier and push on towards the top half of the table then a move to a 35,000 seater stadium will help a great deal in that pursuit.

Fernandes has stated that the new stadium will still be in West London but it’s still unclear as to how far from their current home the proposed stadium would be.
