Loftus Road during QPR match is ambient
Queens Park Rangers have been playing at Loftus Road since 1917 and they took a wooden stand from their previous stadium with them. After moving into Loftus Road, they had to share their home ground several times. Rugby association The London Wasps used the stadium for six years and Fulham played two short years at the stadium until the construction of their own stadium was finished. Loftus Road contains four stands: The Loftus Road End, Ellerslie Road Stand, South Africa Road Stand and The School End. A new name was assigned to Loftus Road in 2019: Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. However, locals still refer to the stadium as Loftus Road.
A beautiful tribute
Queens Park Rangers gave the name rights of the stadium to The Kiyan Prince Foundation to honour the former QPR youth player Kiyan Prince. The fifteen-year-old Kiyan Prince was stabbed after school while trying to stop a fight. The youth player paid with his life for protecting someone else. The renaming of the stadium isn’t just a beautiful tribute to the young talent of QPR, but it also draws one’s attention to the dangers and consequences of knife violence.
