Rail seating update

FOLLOWING extensive consultation with supporters, the club can now confirm our intention is to install rail seating in the Loftus Road Lower Stand after more than 74% (74.13%) of fans surveyed confirmed this would be their preferred location for its implementation.

Please find details below of our proposal.

The changes will see 1,063 seats in the Lower Loft converted into rail seating ahead of the 2022/23 season. The Lower Loft will have a combination of both seated and rail-seating seats available within the stand.

This implementation will require changes to the Family Stand, with Blocks NL and PL in the Lower Loft and PU in the Upper Loft becoming designated family areas. Families within these areas will still have access to all family facilities in the stand, including the Matchday Activities Room.

As a result of the proposed changes, several upgrades will be made within the stand, including additional food and drink facilities within the Upper and Lower Loft.

Supporters will be able to access the Upper and Lower Loft from both the South Africa Road and Loftus Road entrances.

However, due to capacity limits and the likelihood of more fans using the Blue & White Bar following the implementation of rail seating in the Lower Loft, the Blue & White Bar would need to become a ‘members only’ area as we manage access within this area.

Memberships will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at a cost of £40 per person per season.

Non-members of the Blue & White Bar will be able to purchase beverages from the newly-installed food and drink facilities.

The club have now opened a consultation period, with season ticket holders within the Loft being contacted directly with further details on how to get in touch if needed.
