QPR new 40,000-seater stadium

POPULOUS  along with Sir Terry Farrell are developing the masterplan for the project, where the new QPR stadium along with a concert arena and hotel will form an entertainment and sport district at the heart of the new Queens Park masterplan.

Tony Fernandes said “‘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.”

The new stadium would be part of a much bigger regeneration over hundreds of acres in the West London area which would cost an astonishing £10billion.

Tony Fernandes told the club’s official 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.
