QPR STILL HOPING FOR NEW STADIUM

Queens Park Rangers chairman Tony Fernandes is still hoping to build a new stadium for the London-based English Premier League club.

Their current home, Loftus Road, is one of the smallest grounds in the top flight with a capacity of 18,500 and the Malaysian wants to be able to dramatically increase that amount.

Fernandes said: “I’ve always felt anything from 35,000 to 45,000 is possible.

“If we’re playing good football and have a good stadium, offering a good product, people will come. And London’s a great city.

“The message to our architects was to keep what’s good at Loftus Road but try to make it a bit bigger.”
