A whole host of QPR fans are delighted on Twitter as the club have been granted planning permission to build a new training ground.
QPR have been experiencing a fairly enjoyable start to the Championship season, going unbeaten in their opening six league fixtures and are currently sitting just four points outside of the play-offs. However, they have lost their last three league matches by a scoreline of 2-1.
Will QPR make the playoffs this season?
It’s shaping up to be another competitive season at both ends of the Championship, and after last season, many may have expected to see QPR linger around mid-table, but Mark Warburton has recruited well in 2021, with the likes of Charlie Austin and Andre Gray now at Loftus Road, but great recruitment may not be required if this new training ground can produce homegrown quality talent.
A lot of QPR fans are buzzing on Twitter with this latest news to emerge.
What have these QPR fans been saying?
“Brilliant news for the club – fans have had to be patient but great to see the training ground project now coming to fruition…”
“Just had to post this to celebrate the good news. A massive congratulations to the Board and everyone involved in the project for getting it across the line, it’s a massive, massive moment for us.”
“It’s been a VERY long time coming when you consider the Warren Farm nightmare!! Great to see it finally progressing and coming to fruition!”
“Brilliant news for the future of the club! Respect to the owners for providing part funding for it! Now we just need new stadium (if possible) that transfers the ‘closeness’ of the KPF into its design. This would really help modernise the club in the long term! Great progress!”
“Well this really is awesome news. I’m buzzing about everything to do with my football club on and off the pitch right now. “
The QPR academy has been a great place for players to develop as people and improve as players at the same time with people coming through their youth systems, including Raheem Sterling, Colin Kazim-Richards and Peter Crouch.
Having an academy that can develop young and talented players who can improve the squad as well as potentially being sold on for a hefty price tag, much like Ebere Eze was last summer, helps the club become self-sustainable and reduces the risk of losing a lot of money through flop signings and paying big wages, so it’s no wonder the fans are delighted with this development.
