Queens Park Rangers FC - Loftus Road
Loftus Road has been home to QPR since 1963. All except the Ellerslie Road Stand are double decker. The South Africa Road Stand on one side of the ground, has a larger upper tier, compared to the lower tier, with a row of executive boxes running across the middle. There are a couple of supporting pillars in this stand. The other side, the Ellerslie Road Stand, is single tiered, with a television gantry suspended below its roof. Both ends are similar looking two tiered stands. In the lower tiers you'll rarely find a bad view.
Up to 1,279 visiting supporters can be catered for and are situated in the upper tier of the School End behind one of the goals. If demand is high then the lower tier can also be given over, increasing allocations to around 2,500. If the lower tier allocation is all that's taken up, then the upper tier is allocated to home supporters. It used to be a case of 'sit right at the front of the tier, or you can't see all the goal at the near end or even the last few yards of the pitch'. However, the club has shortened the pitch so this shouldn't be a problem any longer.

Where To Drink
There are a number of pubs on the Uxbridge Road that are heavily used by home supporters, including the Conningham Arms, The Queen Adelaide and The British Prince. They all have the usual facilities of big screen televisions and pool tables etc but have very slow service on match days due to the crowds. Slightly more up market is O’Donohue’s which has a wine –bar feel. This is opposite Goldhawk Road station, the other side of Shepherds Bush market from the Shepherds Bush Hammersmith and City station. As for away fans there is 'The Green' in Shepherds Bush. Exiting Shepherds Bush Underground Station, turn left and The Green is a short way down on the left. The pub sits across from Shepherds Bush Green where there are other pubs to be found nearby, such as O'Neills.
Parking is very limited in the streets surrounding the stadium due to the residential permit holder zones. Private car parks are the best bet with spaces opposite the BBC television centre recommended. It is located at the end of Silver Road (near the Royal Mail unit) and costs £6 per vehicle. There are 75 spaces available, so it is best to get there early. Alternatively you can do as a lot of others do and park on the outskirts of London or the immediate area and get the tube.
