The low-down ...
QPR's training base is located at the Imperial College Sports Ground in Harlington, near Heathrow Airport.
Rangers took the ground over from local neighbours Chelsea in July 2005.
The Club has since brought great benefit to Imperial College students through access to professional QPR coaches.
The ground is open seven days a week and the Club also supports an extensive programme of matches involving Imperial College teams.
As well as the QPR First Team, the ground is a regular training venue for a number of England Rugby Union teams.
Facilities at Harlington include ten football pitches, floodlit grass and 3G Astroturf training areas, as well as a state-of-the-art gym.
The ground was fully refurbished in the summer of 2012.
