Final pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon ...
QPR TAKE on Bundesliga side FC Augsburg tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon.
The match kicks off at 4.00pm local time (3.00pm GMT) and presents Mark Hughes with the final opportunity to run the rule over his charges before the big Barclays Premier League kick-off on August 18th.
FC Augsburg, who ply their trade at the 30,660 capacity SGL Arena, finished 14th in the 2011/12 Bundesliga season.
The Bavaria-based Club appointed Markus Weinzierl as their new manager in May.
Tickets for Saturday’s friendly at the SGL Arena will be on sale to QPR fans on the day.
Tickets - which are priced €12 or €15 - will be allocated in blocks V and Y and will be on sale at the ground from 1.30pm local time.
The SGL Arena
Having clinched promotion to Bundesliga 2 in 2006 and, with it, a return to the professional sphere after a 23-year absence, FC Augsburg set about building themselves a stadium to replace their old home at the Rosenaustadion and take the club into the modern era.
Construction work, part-funded by the city of Augsburg, began in late 2007 and the new arena - which currently bears the name of sponsors SGL Carbon SE - was officially unveiled on July 26th 2009
As it stands, the stadium has a capacity of just under 31,000, similar to that of its predecessor. A planned second construction phase will raise that figure to just under the 40,000-mark (all-seater), with the option of converting enough seats into standing room to take the maximum attendance up to 49,000.
It has the distinction of being the world's first climate-neutral football stadium, a feat achieved through the utilisation of ecological heat exchange pumps attached to six 40-metre deep wells.
The SGL arena hosted the 2010 season curtain-raising DFL Supercup between Bayern Munich and Schalke 04, and was was one of the nine official venues for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.
