thumbnail Hello,

Following rumours that the owner believes the club are out-growing Loftus Road, the Rs chief has stated his desire to move the club to a bigger venue in the not-too-distant future

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes has revealed his desire to build a new stadium for the club, raising the capacity to as much as “35,000 to 45,000”.

The Rs’ current ground, Loftus Road, holds just 18,500 and is the smallest of all the ground in the Premier League.

And Fernandes believes the west London outfit are more than capable of playing to capacity crowds of twice that amount.

"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 the new ground has not yet been established, but Fernandes is adamant talks over a new home are taking place.
