QPR FC Women are delighted to announce that for the 2021/22 campaign, Steve Quashie’s side will be playing all first-team home fixtures at Hanwell Town’s Powerday Stadium.
Located in Greenford, just off the A40, the female R’s - who clinched promotion to the FA Women’s National League Division One South East last summer - will now be able to soak up all the benefits of playing their 2021/22 home fixtures at Hanwell.
Speaking about the partnership, QPR FC Women's manager Steve Quashie told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am ecstatic that the club has secured a professional relationship with Hanwell Town FC.
“The impressive Powerday Stadium is in the QPR catchment area, therefore easily accessible for current, and future supporters.
“Their stadium pitch is maintained by experienced ground staff, who have won many accolades over the years. The excellent surface will make a positive impact on the players and set us up for what will be a great year.”
Charlotte Edwards, QPR Community Trust’s equality, diversity and inclusion lead, also told us: “We have been having regular conversations with the representatives at Hanwell Town FC since we knew of the team's place in Tier 4.
“Hanwell Town are very keen to have QPR FC Women play at the Powerday Stadium and have welcomed us with open arms.
“We hope in turn to generate lots of interest around female football locally and with the club's younger female teams.”
Lastly, speaking about the relationship with QPR FC Women, Nigel Hunt, Hanwell Town’s CEO added: “Hanwell Town Football Club is a community-based club with the largest youth set up in the borough of Ealing.
“So having QPR at the Powerday Stadium next season will be a great fit for us as we are trying to raise the profile of female football within the local area.
“We see this as a partnership and look forward to working with the management team at QPR to create a welcoming and friendly environment at the club.”
The R’s kick off their campaign on August 15th when we host Stevenage Borough Women.
