Fernandes seeks new home for QPR
QPR chairman Tony Fernandes is planning a new 45,000 seat stadium for the club, as the owner feels they are outgrowing their current home ground, Loftus Road.
The cliub's current home ground holds just 18,500 and has the smallest capacity in the Premier League.
Fernandes has revealed his plans to build a new stadium for the club and increasing the capacity to around "35,000 to 45,000", with the owner believing that QPR have the potential to attract crowds more than double their current size.
"I've always felt anything from 35,000 to 45,000 is possible," the chairman told the club's London Call-In radio show. "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."
A site for a new home has not yet been finalised but Fernandes is adamant that talk of a new home is not a pipe dream and serious discussion is taking place regarding the concept.
