QPR START STADIUM DISCUSSIONS

Queens Park Rangers have begun discussions over building a new 40,000-capacity stadium.

It is believed Old Oak Common in West London is a proposed site for the project and could be part of a larger redevelopment as a 100-acre area has been identified as suitable ground.

The initial stage - discussions with Hammersmith and Fulham Council – are, despite no official comment, thought to be at an advanced stage.

If the club were to move it would see them leave the 18,400-capacity Loftus Road, their permanent home since 1917, which has been deemed too small for the club’s future plans.
