Statement on relegation

QPR1st Supporters Trust acknowledges the expected relegation of the club from The Premier League. It is now important than fans, players, owners, and staff come together to ensure the future of the club.

It is vital that the owners listen to the concerns of fans who have been through this emotional trauma in 1995/96 and watched the club be mismanaged, come close to liquidation, and sink to the third tier of the football league pyramid before some pride was restored. It is essential that lessons are learned from other clubs that have been relegated from the Premier League and have subsequently found themselves a long way from any hope of a return.

The Trust is disappointed that the QPR Women’s team was also relegated yesterday. The Trust has been consistently supportive of the Women’s teams and calls on the club to show similar support and integrate all the football teams who wear QPR shirts ensuring that they share in the support of fans, owners, and sponsors alike.

At its heart Queens Park Rangers is a community based football club. Build a brand on a football reputation. Build a multi-venue entertainment venue on a football reputation. Football first. QPR 1st.
