Our Impressions of Loftus Road Stadium
The away end is really hard to find as the lower tier entrance is one end and the upper tier is the other end. Things were made worse by the fact that none of the stewards seemed to be able to help distinguish which side of the ground we should enter. The ground itself is tidy and compact and the view from the front row of the upper tier was very good.
JB says 'Away fans entrance - best to gain access from Ellerslie Road. Gain entry to the Upper Tier of the away fans end from here. Once the upper tier is full, access to lower tier can be made from same entrance.'
