Queens Park Rangers Football Club selected SAPCA member, White Horse Contractors, to reconstruct its Loftus Road Stadium pitch in the summer of 2023. The works were undertaken during the short summer break, between the professional football seasons.

With more than 60 years of experience, White Horse Contractors designed and constructed the hybrid turf football pitch and completed the project in time for the start of the 2023-24 season.

The project is the latest in a long-standing partnership between QPR and White Horse, which has also seen the company design and construct hybrid pitches at the club’s Heston training ground.

See below a video of the project, which explains the scope of the works and also includes interviews from the key stake holders in the project, such as QPR’s Head Groundsman, Dave Butler.
