QUEENS Park Rangers kick off their Emirates FA Cup campaign on Saturday afternoon, with a third-round clash against Rotherham United awaiting Mark Warburton’s side at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium (3pm KO).

Rangers of course head into this one following the impressive Sky Bet Championship away victories over Bristol City and Birmingham City, which saw the Super Hoops both signing off from 2021 and kicking off 2022 in ideal fashion.

However, attentions now switch to the famous tournament on what is the 40th anniversary of our iconic FA Cup run of 1982 and just like then, the R’s enter at the third-round stage with a home tie.

A replay was needed back then to separate Terry Venables’ side from Middlesbrough in a tie which kicked off a run that saw Rangers eventually meeting holders Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley for what remains our only-ever FA Cup final appearance.

Bringing it back to the present day, Warburton’s side welcome League One Rotherham who have had to already overcome National League sides Bromley and Stockport County to reach round three.

COVID Protocols

We can confirm that – in line with updated Government requirements - fans over 18 accessing Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium must now display their NHS Covid Pass to gain entry, or provide proof of a negative result from a recent lateral flow test within the previous 48 hours.

International supporters should also note that, in addition, we will accept an EU Digital COVID Certificate or US CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card for entry.

Government legislation was passed recently that means people in England who are attending any event with more than 10,000 people must comply with the above.

Supporters can obtain an NHS Covid Pass digitally through the NHS App, online via NHS.UK, or as a letter sent in the post.

The club will accept any form of proving a negative lateral flow test such as the physical test, photo of a recent test, or a screenshot of the recorded result which has been uploaded to the NHS.

We urge fans to consider the following key points ahead of future matchdays:

  • Be prepared – ensure you have your Covid pass or proof of lateral flow test ready to be checked before you get to the turnstiles. It is recommended to take a screenshot of your pass before attending, as obtaining the pass using internet signal can often be problematic at large spectator venues
  • Arrive early – entry to the stadium will take longer than normal so ensure you arrive well in advance of kick-off
  • Co-operate – the requirement to show your Covid status is a mandatory requirement on venues so please co-operate with our staff who will have to undertake these checks

A huge thank you for your continued cooperation.

Streaming Details

QPR fans all over the world can tune into live audio commentary of Saturday's Emirates FA Cup tie with Rotherham United at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Latest regulations do not permit clubs to stream FA Cup fixtures live on their channels. So live audio commentary is therefore the best way for fans not in attendance to follow all of the third-round action via QPR+.

Regular QPR+ commentators Nick London and Andy Sinton will be providing the coverage and overseas R’s who have a live streaming subscription will be able to tune into the commentary. UK-based fans with a match commentary subscription can also tune in as normal.

Pre-match Talk

Mark Warburton (QPR Manager): “If you can’t get excited for the FA Cup you shouldn’t be in English Football - it’s one of the oldest cup competitions in the world, it’s a magnificent tournament with so many historical moments. Who doesn’t want to be involved in the FA Cup?"

Paul Warne (Rotherham United Manager): “We’re going to lose football games, it isn’t a disaster, you just have to bounce back as soon as you can, starting with Saturday. I have had some real mixed fortunes at QPR, but the pressure is off - we would love to go through but it wouldn’t be a coupon-buster.”

Memorable Match

QPR 3, Rotherham United 2: November 24th 2020

Three first-half goals proved crucial for the R’s, who returned to winning ways with a 3-2 success over Rotherham United.

Ilias Chair (20 minutes), Bright Osayi-Samuel (45+1) and Lyndon Dykes (penalty, 45+4) were all on target for Rangers, whose work before half-time set up this Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium success.

Michael Smith’s first-half leveller and Freddie Ladapo’s 84th-minute strike certainly made for an interesting finale.

But, thankfully, the R’s were able to hang on for all three points.

QPR Starting XI: Dieng, Kakay, Masterson, Barbet, Hamalainen, Cameron, Ball, Chair, Osayi-Samuel, Willock, Dykes.

Ref Watch

Dean Whitestone will take charge of tomorrow’s FA Cup clash with Rotherham United.

This will be Whitestone’s second Rangers clash of the campaign, with his last coming in our home victory over Coventry City back in late August. He will be supported by assistant referees Justin Amey and Ian Cooper and fourth official Carl Brook.
