QPR discussing move to site of Linford Christie Stadium

QPR are looking into the possibility of a new 30,000-capacity ground on the site of the Linford Christie Stadium.

It comes amid continued problems and delays with the proposed regeneration of Old Oak, where the club has been seeking to build a stadium.

Rangers are now assessing the feasibility of a new community stadium in partnership with athletics club Thames Valley Harriers.

Harriers use the venue next to Wormwood Scrubs, which opened as the West London Stadium in 1967 and was renamed in 1993 – the year after the Hammersmith-raised Christie won an Olympic 100 metres gold medal.

It is situated just a mile from Loftus Road, which has been QPR’s home for all but three of the last hundred years.
