Significant changes across the board at Loftus Road

Wed 24th Aug 2011 | Money & Finance

Queens Park Rangers (QPR) have announced significant changes to their pricing structure for the current 2011/12 Barclays Premier League campaign.

Following a full evaluation of their prices across all areas and having taken into account feedback from their supporters, the club have confirmed the following changes:

-        Significant refunds on Season Tickets*

-        Significant top-line reductions on matchday prices and the continuation of the £5 Adult members discount

-        Introduction of a third matchday pricing category, representing excellent value for money for QPR supporters

-        Under-eight’s go free – all children under the age of eight will now be able to attend every QPR home fixture (subject to availability) free of charge, when accompanied by a full paying adult, in the silver and bronze areas of the stadium

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk about the changes, newly-appointed CEO Philip Beard, said: “These changes show how serious the owners are about taking the fans’ views on board.

“Ticket prices are imperative to the business structure and we are confident our supporters will react positively to the news and help make Loftus Road a fortress on matchdays.

“I would personally like to thank the QPR staff, in particular those directly affected by the previous ticketing structure, for their professionalism and patience in responding to the fans’ complaints.”

Supporters who have purchased a ticket at the original price for our home fixture against Newcastle United on Monday 12th September will be entitled to a refund voucher.

Box Office Manager, Jenny Elliott, added: “The Box Office staff are delighted Tony Fernandes and his fellow Board members have acknowledged all of our concerns regarding ticket prices and have reduced the prices accordingly.

“Its fantastic news and I’m sure the fans will embrace the new pricing structure. 

“This is a major step forward in terms of re-building the bond between the Club and its supporters and we look forward to welcoming our loyal fans to Loftus Road this season.”

*All current Season Ticket holders will be eligible for a refund. The Club will be writing to each and every Season Ticket holder individually in the coming weeks to explain the refund process.
