QPR OFFICIAL SITE re Training Ground -  

World-renowned designers helping to create a state-of-the-art training facility for QPR ...

Populous have great experience in this field and are the perfect fit for us"
Philip Beard

QPR HAVE appointed world-renowned sports architects Populous to design a bespoke, state-of-the-art training facility and community sports hub at the Warren Farm site in Ealing.

Populous have designed some of the most iconic buildings for professional and elite sports around the world including Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Wembley Stadium, The New York Yankees Stadium and Olympic Stadia for Sydney 2000, London 2012 and Sochi 2014.

Substantial work has already been undertaken and now the final touches are being added to a comprehensive and detailed design process.

QPR CEO Philip Beard said: “It is fantastic to have Populous on board.

“Having secured Warren Farm, we wanted to work with the best people in the industry to develop a training ground which will benefit not only the first team, but also the academy and the local community.

“Populous have great experience in this field and are the perfect fit for us.

“Over the summer, a great amount of renovation has taken place at our current training ground at Harlington which has reduced the urgency for us to move to a new site.

“We are working very closely with Ealing Council and are very excited about what we can create.  It is our intention to have a fully operational training facility in place ahead of the 2014/15 season.”

Christopher Lee, Senior Principal at Populous, said: “We are excited to be designing the new training complex for QPR.

“The club have an incredible history and a clear vision of where they are going; the new training complex will become the foundation on which the club’s future is built.

“The new QPR training complex draws on our experience designing elite athlete training facilities around the world, to create an unparalleled centre of excellence for QPR’s first team and academy, set alongside local community sports.”  QPR

THE GUARDIAN - 5 Do QPR know what they're doing?

They were caught utterly cold by Swansea on the opening day, had their defence exposed again by Norwich before rallying to secure a 1-1 draw and then looked more solid despite losing 3-1 to the champions. Having signed 12 players and let 16 leave it was always going to take time for QPR's new team to bed down, but despite all the trading their full-backs remain weak defensively while some of the signings hint at a trolley dash approach. Relatively new owner plus relatively new manager and a brand new team. What could possibly go wrong?...
