How the media reported The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium

ON Friday, it was announced that The Kiyan Prince Foundation would be gifted the naming rights to Loftus Road from the 2019/20 season.

Five local charities had been shortlisted to win the naming rights and, when put to QPR fans, The Kiyan Prince Foundation scooped 63 per cent of the vote.

Kiyan, a talented QPR academy prospect, was tragically killed outside of his school in 2006. His father, Mark, set up his foundation to educate young people about the dangers of youth violence and he was emotional when he was informed that the foundation had won the rights.

He said: “I can’t tell you what this means to Kiyan’s mum, to me, his brothers and sisters, his friends and people who have been supporting the work we have been doing.

“Kiyan was a very special young man. We hear many stories about his kindness and good nature so to have the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium at a place where his skills were honed is a dream come true.”
