Pre-season games have finished – warm weather training in Portugal is a dim and distant memory – now it’s time to put everything together, shake it around a little and let’s see what happens.

Saturday 5 August 2017 and Loftus Road welcomes Reading FC. You know, that lot who lost in last season’s Championship play-off final.


Referee – Scott Duncan
Assistants – Akil Howson and Christopher Akers
Fourth official – Daniel Leach

If you’re not going to the game or you haven’t signed up to the QPR+ Season Pass (UK residents match commentary – overseas visitors get the watch the match live – BAH!) and you want to see what went on then you lucky lot can tune in to Channel 5 Sport new highlights show with that boring **** presenter, Colin Murray. Oh deep joy!

This clip will tell you more.

New season, new-look programme! 🔵⚪️🔵⚪️ #QPR #QPRvREA #LoftusRoad100
