QPR Identify Possible New Stadium Site

Thu 9th Feb 2017 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Queens Park Rangers’ CEO, Lee Hoos confirms possible new site in club's search for a new home.

Hoos was responding to a report in today’s press that QPR are exploring the possibility of a new stadium on the site of the Linford Christie Stadium.

Speaking exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk, Hoos said:“We are looking at all possible options to secure the future of the club in Hammersmith & Fulham and benefit the community.

"A potential partnership with an athletics club such as Thames Valley Harriers to create a new community stadium - and an adjacent athletics track - could bring huge benefits to both clubs, as well as to the local community that is our home.

"Before putting forward any formal proposal for a new community stadium we would consult fans, local residents, schools, charities and others to see how best we could achieve those aims.”

The site, around one mile from the club’s current home at Loftus Road, would involve significant consultation with fans about all aspects of the stadium. 

QPR have previously announced plans for a stadium at Old Oak, but land acquisition and wider problems with the Old Oak regeneration, which has been described as ‘a mess’ by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, have forced the club to consider possible alternative sites.
