QPR looking at possible move

Following a summer squad overhaul, new QPR owner, Tony Fernandes, feels that the next step in the club’s evolution could be a move away from Loftus Road.

As a Premier League club, the Hoops’ current ground has a capacity of just under 19,000, and to compete at the top level, the Malaysian businessman is looking to expand.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Fernandes stated: “There’s potential for another stadium. The most obvious one would be somewhere in White City. There are parcels of land around there, some owned by the BBC.”

The new owner has also spoken on the prospect of sharing, with Chelsea also seeking new grounds, he added: “My first game in Italy was AC Milan v Inter Milan These are two of the biggest clubs in the world and they share a stadium.”

However, he is wary of the difficulties of such a scenario, adding: “I’m not saying that we’re going to do it but there’s nothing that should be not looked at. And there was precedence here; Crystal Palace and Charlton shared at some stage.”
