The economic downturn has prompted Rangers chiefs to extend the season ticket deadline and cut prices.
A five per cent reduction will be made on the early bird discount which will now run until Sunday May 17 – with a 2.5 per cent reduction for those buying or renewing after that date.
QPR co-owner Flavio Briatore explained the move to QPR.co.uk: ‘This price reduction reflects the current economic downturn in the country, as well as the drop in VAT.
‘We believe we are not only being realistic with this new offer, but are also providing supporters with an affordable price in these uncertain economic times.
‘On behalf of the Board of Directors, I’d like to thank you for your continued support and I look forward to welcoming you back to Loftus Road next season.’
QPR holdings vice chairman Amit Bhatia said the decision was made after consultation with Queens Park Rangers supporters: ‘We have taken this decision following detailed discussions with fan groups and feedback from our supporters.
‘The QPR fan-base plays an integral role in the decision-making process and we were wary that the initial deadline only took into account supporters receiving one pay packet during the initial time period.
‘Therefore, we have extended the deadline by an additional month to include April’s wages, and hopefully the five per-cent price reduction will make it financially easier for fans to renew their ticket ahead of the new season.’
Under eights will continue to go free in selected areas of the ground, as the Rangers hierarchy released some well-timed good news after fans furore over the sacking of Paulo Sousa last night.
