Loftus Road Stadium
I found it hard to sleep in the night as I was so pumped for today`s match. I easily fell asleep but I was constantly getting up in the night as my body just wanted to get to Loftus Road. The plan was to leave my house in Colliers Wood at around 9:15am and get the Northern Line from Morden to Stockwell, and then get the Victoria Line from Stockwell to Oxford Circus and then get the Central Line from Oxford Circus to White City for around 10:30am.
The main stand is called the South Africa Road Stand. It is two tiered stand and holds the executive boxes, the W12 Club, changing rooms, club shop and reception. The lower tier is a row of paddocks and the upper tier is just normal seats in blue and white. Opposite the main stand is the Ellerslie Road stand which is my favourite stand. It is a simple one tiered stand and was opened in the early 1970`s. In the middle three blocks, the letters QPR are written on white seats over blue seats. Most of the chanting is started in the Ellerslie Road Stand. The two stands behind the goals are called the Loftus Road End and the School End. Both of these stands are near identical. They are both two tiered.
The Loftus Road End holds the home fans and The School End holds the away fans. The Upper School End Tier is used for away fans and if the away demand is not high then the lower School End Tier is given to the home fans but when the away demand is high, all of the School End is given to the away fans. Today, Leeds were given both tiers of the School End as the away demand for tickets was very high. I myself was sitting in block LL in the Loftus Road End behind the goal for this match. I have only sat in the Loftus Road End twice before, against Preston North End and against Sheffield United.
