QPR Appoint Populous For Warren Farm Development

Mon 10th Sep 2012 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

QPR have appointed world-renowned sports architects Populous to design a bespoke, state-of-the-art training facility and community sports hub at the Warren Farm site in Ealing.

Populous have designed some of the most iconic buildings for professional and elite sports around the world including Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Wembley Stadium, The New York Yankees Stadium and Olympic Stadia for Sydney 2000, London 2012 and Sochi 2014.

Substantial work has already been undertaken and now the final touches are being added to a comprehensive and detailed design process.

QPR CEO Philip Beard said: “It is fantastic to have Populous on board.

“Having secured Warren Farm, we wanted to work with the best people in the industry to develop a training ground which will benefit not only the first team, but also the academy and the local community.

“Populous have great experience in this field and are the perfect fit for us.

“Over the summer, a great amount of renovation has taken place at our current training ground at Harlington which has reduced the urgency for us to move to a new site.

“We are working very closely with Ealing Council and are very excited about what we can create. It is our intention to have a fully operational training facility in place ahead of the 2014/15 season.”

Christopher Lee, Senior Principal at Populous, said: “We are excited to be designing the new training complex for QPR. 

“The club have an incredible history and a clear vision of where they are going; the new training complex will become the foundation on which the club’s future is built. 

“The new QPR training complex draws on our experience designing elite athlete training facilities around the world, to create an unparalleled centre of excellence for QPR’s first team and academy, set alongside local community sports.”
