QPR discuss stadium idea with residents

QPR and QPR in the Community Trust have been engaging with local stakeholders, residents’ groups, schools, charities and others in and around W12 about the idea of a possible redevelopment of the Linford Christie Stadium.

The club’s idea would involve a partnership with Thames Valley Harriers to create a new athletics track and community sports facility on site, as well as a separate 30,000 seater football stadium next to it.

Mark Donnelly, QPR COO, said: “Talking to residents has generated lots of ideas about what people would like to see at a potentially redeveloped Linford Christie Stadium, whether it is toilets and a café or somewhere that schools can use as a base to take children on nature trips to the Scrubs.

"The current Linford Christie Stadium is crying out for regeneration, and the potential for a big investment from a football club with the local community at its heart is huge. It was important for us to engage with the community as early as we could to fully understand the possibilities and also the concerns, but there is still a way to go before we put forward any formal proposal.”
