History and description

Loftus Road was built in 1904, but it wasn't until 1917 that QPR moved to the ground. QPR brought one covered seating stand from their previous ground at Park Royal, and the rest of the stadium consisted of open terraces. Stadium attendance increased in the 1960s, but declined in the 1970s. In 1994, QPR purchased a training ground in Uxbridge from Wimbledon F.C., and moved their first team there before returning to Loftus Road in 2003. QPR was unsatisfied with their ground at White City Stadium and moved to nearby Loftus Road in 1931. In 1938, a new covered terrace opened, but changes were few in the next decades. Stadium attendance increased in the 1960s but declined in the 1970s. In 1994, QPR purchased a training ground in Uxbridge from Wimbledon F.C., and moved their first team there before returning to Loftus Road in 2003.

In the early 1960s, QPR moved back and forth between White City Stadium and their original stadium in Queens.

Loftus Road was built in the late 1960s and early 1970s with the construction of the South Africa Road and Ellerslie Road stands. These stands raised the capacity of Loftus Road to about 35,000 people. In 1980 and 1981, the two stands at both ends were rebuilt.

The stadium was converted into an all-seater in the 1990s which reduced the capacity to below 20,000 seats.

Between 2002 and 2004, Fulham played their home matches at Craven Cottage while the renovations were being done at Loftus Road.

The QPR leadership is currently investigating a potential move to a new stadium. While no concrete plans have been unveiled yet, they want to build the stadium at a different location in West London.

QPR Tickets

Tickets for QPR games can be bought online, by phone ( +44) 8444 777 007, or at the QPR box office at Loftus Road. If tickets are still available, they can be bought at the box office before the game. However, QPR do not always sell out games in the Premier League, so it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance.

Tickets prices vary depending on the opponent, with those in the cheapest category starting at £30.00 for a seat in the back of the goal and going up to £50.00 for a seat at one of the sidelines. Prices for more popular matches start at £50.00. Some limited view tickets can be slightly cheaper, but are not recommended because they generally don't offer a better view.
