QPR looking to leave Loftus Road

Published Add your comment

QPR owner Tony Fernandes has revealed he is now actively searching for a venue in west London to replace Loftus Road.

Fernandes, who has been in charge of the club for just over three months, is determined to relocate given the hemmed-in nature of their current ground in Shepherd's Bush.

With a capacity of just 18,500, it is the smallest ground in the Barclays Premier League, and Fernandes, who also owns F1's Team Lotus and budget airline AirAsia, believes the club need a bigger arena, telling Press Association Sport: "It's still premature at the moment. The key this season is to survive, but we would like a bigger ground, and we are looking."
