The shock announcement at a new ticketing structure that will be in place at Loftus Road has shocked and appalled a multitude of Rangers supporters.
Fans coming to the Derby game can expect to pay a newly designated "Category A" pricing structure. The reason for this new structure is described as follows by the official website;
Our ultimate goal at Queens Park Rangers Football Club is to reach the Promised Land of the Premiership and to compete with some of the biggest Club's in the country, and in time, across Europe.
As such, we are totally committed to building a sound financial base for the future, upon which we can continue to build for what we all believe will be the most successful period in our Club's history.
As part of this financial restructuring, we need to increase our match-day revenues and as a result, we have introduced a new three-tiered category banding structure, whereby adult matchday prices are determined by the opposition, their league position, and the day of the fixture.
This new structure will see fans who want to sit in the upper loft paying £40 for the privilege on match-day. Presumably this will extend to the away end where Derby fans will be expected to pay £40 for their seat - The highest Rangers have ever charged for travelling supporters by a distance.
Buzzwords from Flavio Briatore surrounding a boutique football club in a boutique stadium has a lot of fans understandably worried that season ticket prices will be set to soar once again in the coming campaign.
Even Blackpool fans that choose to travel to Loftus Road will pay a good £30 for their seat, in "Category C" as Rangers and Flavio Briatore continue to develop their brand.
The real issue at hand is how far does this particular style of business practice extend before fans of QPR and the football league at large begin to register their displeasure.
