Tony Fernandes Steps Down

QPR1st, the QPR Supporters Trust, notes the announcement that former Chairman Tony Fernandes has stepped down from the board of the club. The Trust wishes to acknowledge Tony’s efforts and investments over his twelve years.

His time at QPR was marked by a number of soaring highs and crushing lows, the highlight of which is winning the Championship playoff final in 2014. Debates will continue into the future giving a verdict on his overall impact.

For now the immediate question is who picks up his minority shareholding (last reported as 26.8%). We look forward to the club clarifying the position on the new ownership structure and whether this has any material impact on the running of the club.
