About Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium
The Loftus Road ground has been home to QPR since 1904 and has a capacity of 18,439. The stadium became the first in the UK to have an artificial pitch installed, when Omniturf was put in place during the summer of 1981. Until 2019, the stadium was known as Loftus Road. It was renamed in June 2019 after a fan vote to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Kiyan Prince was a QPR youth team player who was murdered in 2006 while trying to stop another young boy from being bullied. The Kiyan Prince Foundation was set up by his father in his son’s memory to combat knife crime and other youth violence.
