New 40,000 Capicity Stadium In London?

Last updated : 13 December 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

QPR have announced plans to move into a new 40,000-capacity stadium as part of an ambitious project to be constructed at Old Oak in west London.

Rs chairman Tony Fernandes revealed late on Thursday night that the club intended to leave Loftus Road because there was "no option of expanding" at their present home.

The new stadium is set to be built as part of a "major regeneration" of the Old Oak area, with plans for the creation of a residential and commercial precinct larger than Canary Wharf.

While there is likely to be some fan backlash over leaving Loftus Road - a ground QPR first used in 1917 - Fernandes believes the project would cement the club's place in west London.

QPR chief executive officer Philip Beard also said that the club's fans would be consulted over any move.
