QPR’S plans to host a beamback of Saturday’s away fixture at Reading live at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium have been rejected by Reading.
Owing to the potential for a number of QPR fans to access home areas of the Select Car Leasing Stadium, the club conducted a survey regarding showing the game in our hospitality lounges and received a positive response from our supporters.
QPR sought the necessary approvals to put the event on – which was endorsed by the Metropolitan Police due to the public order concern – but our request has been rejected by Reading.
The host club would not sanction the beamback without QPR covering the cost of a number of away hospitality packages.
QPR CEO Lee Hoos said: "This is hugely disappointing.
"After selling out our away ticket allocation and being unable to acquire further tickets, we were very keen to provide our supporters with another way to watch the game together.
"We were also trying to help alleviate potential problems with away fans in home areas but have been unable to proceed without Reading’s consent."
The club urges its supporters not to purchase tickets in the home areas of the Select Car Leasing Stadium.
