Hoos responds to stadium speculation

RESPONDING to a report in today’s press that QPR are exploring the possibility of a new stadium on the site of the Linford Christie Stadium, QPR Chief Executive Lee Hoos has spoken exclusively to www.qpr.co.uk.

“We are looking at all possible options to secure the future of the club in Hammersmith & Fulham and benefit the community,” he said.

"A potential partnership with an athletics club such as Thames Valley Harriers to create a new community stadium - and an adjacent athletics track - could bring huge benefits to both clubs, as well as to the local community that is our home.

"Before putting forward any formal proposal for a new community stadium we would consult fans, local residents, schools, charities and others to see how best we could achieve those aims.”

The idea is at a very early stage with much work to do before any proposal is brought forward. Any new proposal - if it were to go ahead - would involve significant consultation with fans about all aspects of the stadium.

QPR have previously announced plans for a stadium at Old Oak, but land acquisition and wider problems with the Old Oak regeneration, which has been described as ‘a mess’ by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, have forced the club to consider possible alternative sites.

We are looking at all possible options to secure the future of the club.
