EPL Queens Park Rangers To Build New Training Facility, Will Invest More Than $46M
EPL club Queens Park Rangers "have been given the go-ahead to develop a new training ground at Warren Farm" in London, which will enable them to meet category one Academy standards, according to the London EVENING STANDARD. Ealing Council Wednesday night "granted planning permission for the development, which is scheduled to be completed" in time for the '15-16 season. The complex "will feature grass pitches as well as both indoor and outdoor 3G artificial surfaces and expanded gym and sport science facilities" (EVENING STANDARD, 4/25). In London, Gerard Brand reported "indications are that the club will invest" £30M ($46.3M) into the site. QPR CEO Philip Beard said, "This is a landmark day for Queens Park Rangers Football Club." The club will move from its "current home at the Imperial College Sports Ground in Harlington" (DAILY MAIL, 4/25).
