Queen’s Park Rangers: Guide to away games at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium

Located in Shepherd’s Bush, in the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium is home to the London football club, Queens Park Rangers, who currently reside in the English Championship. So, if you’re planning on heading to this 18,439 capacity stadium for a Championship away game, let’s take a look at some tips for away fans at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

History of Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium
After having their stadium at Park Royal seized by the army in 1915, QPR relocated to Loftus Road in 1917 – the stadium which is now named Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. A new covered terrace for 6,000 supporters was built at the Loftus Road end in 1938, bringing the total ground capacity up to 30,000. Loftus Road became the first stadium in British professional football to install an Omniturf artificial pitch in 1981, which was used until 1988 when a natural grass pitch was reinstated.

The club granted the stadium’s naming rights to The Kiyan Prince Foundation, a charity organisation that was founded in memory of former QPR junior player Kiyan Prince, on June 7, 2019. As a result, the stadium was renamed the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. The current capacity of the stadium is 18,439. Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium is the home location of four QPR teams: the first team, the women’s team, the under-23s, and the under-18s team.

You can purchase tickets in advance online, through the phone, or at the box office. If you are an away fan, you will likely buy your away tickets from your club’s website.
