Top English Football Grounds Advent Calendar 2018: 13th December

12 QPR (6)

Day 13 – Ground no. 12: Loftus Road, Queens Park Rangers

Hidden behind terraced houses to three sides, Loftus Road is another Old School ground with that distinct community feeling. It feels as though they have just managed to squeeze in the ground. You feel that the stands are placed almost on top of the pitch. There is NO leg room between the seats, there is NO room in the concourse. But it just adds to the feeling of being so fortunate that you managed to squeeze in. The sight of floodlight pylons is wonderful. I have to go back for an evening kick-off.
