QPR freeze season ticket prices
Tuesday 22 May 2012
QPR are freezing season ticket renewal prices, the club have confirmed.
Rangers secured Barclays Premier League status on a dramatic final day, despite losing at champions Manchester City.
With another lucrative top-flight campaign to look forward to, the west London club have moved to ease the pressure on their fans in 2012/2013, when under-eights will be able to watch the Hoops free when accompanied by a full-paying adult.
Rangers - who yesterday announced veteran midfielder Kieron Dyer had been given a one-year contact extension - have plans for a state-of-the-art training facility and are keen to explore stadium options, with Loftus Road having a restrictive capacity of just over 18,000.
Chairman Tony Fernandes said on the club's official website, qpr.co.uk: "When I first joined this fantastic club in August, I knew our return to the Premier League would be an adventure - but nothing could prepare me for the rollercoaster ride of last season.
"Retaining our top-flight status is only the beginning.
"Rest assured that as you continue to support QPR, myself, the other owners and the playing and non-playing staff will work tirelessly to ensure it remains a club you can be proud of.
"Next season promises to be equally as exciting, yet hopefully not as nail-biting - and we want you to be part of it."
Defender Clint Hill, midfielder Akos Buzsaky and goalkeeper Radek Cerny have all been offered new contracts as Mark Hughes builds his squad for next season.
