Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes believes the club need to move from Loftus Road into a bigger capacity stadium if they are to grow as a Premier League side, reports BBC
“We need to move if we are to sustain a top-flight club. Old Oak Common is the only realistic place for us to move. It is close to our fans and our roots, with great transport links,” he said.
With their current stadium Loftus Road holding just 16,000 – the lowest in the Premier League – Rangers are looking to move into a 40,000 capacity stadium just a few miles away from their ground.
“We are delighted that so many of our fans and members of the local community share our vision for the future of both QPR and Old Oak. This is only the first stage of consultation and we will continue to work with the community as we develop our plans in more detail.”
