Snapshot: QPR Submit Plans For Swanky New 40,000-Seater Stadium Two Miles North Of Loftus Road…

By Chris Wright

What with Loftus Road being a bit on the small side and all (18,000 capacity), QPR have submitted plans to build themselves a fancy new 40,000-seater stadium – provisionally titled “New Queens Park” – which will hopefully look a bit like this when it’s done…


QPR chairman Tony Fernandes, told the club website:

“Loftus Road is – and always will be – a special place for the club and our supporters, but we need more than an 18,000 capacity.

“With no option of expanding here, we have to look elsewhere and we welcome the mayor’s and Hammersmith & Fulham council’s commitment to regenerate the area, which includes an option to develop a new stadium at Old Oak as a key catalyst to bring forward redevelopment, cementing our future in this part of West London.

“Not only will this give us a top quality stadium to cater for QPR’s needs as the club progresses and grows over the years ahead, but we are very excited about being the driving force behind creating one of the best new urban places in the world. This will be the catalyst for the regeneration of a forgotten area.”

The stadium is being ear-marked for the Old Oak area of West London, two miles north of Loftus Road, with QPR also drawing up plans to make their new ground the centrepiece of a bells-and-whistles regeneration project that will supposedly trigger the creation of a “residential and commercial area larger than Canary Wharf” which they hope will “ultimately generate around 50,000 jobs and 24,000 homes”…


Looks nice chaps, but we’re not entirely certain that Lego is the smartest material to build it with.

    QPR aren’t in the Premier League

    One detail missing in the render is that it will have a roof so it can host concerts, boxing etc.

    But if they do put a roof on it, how will Barton be able to step inside?

  4. Terry Shedingham says:

    Happy birthday Chris!

  5. SL says:

    Barton has been very good this season, hes been kicked and sometimes punched every game. Its obvious the opponents are trying to get him sent off and the refs just allow it, even being kicked when the ball isnt even in play.

    Happy Birthday Chris :)
