Rangers fans are encouraged to take to their seats in silence for the first ten minutes of the fixture against Derby County.
Much has been made of the recent price hike at QPR, and outpourings of disgust from the wider footballing community are reflected by the Rangers supporters. In that vein, QPR supporters group QPR 1st have proposed a Ten Minutes Silence following the start of the fixture.
A statement from QPR 1st reads:
"Following discussion between representatives of the main fans groups, organisations and messageboards within the QPR Community, it has been agreed that we should call for ten minutes silence at the start of the Derby match.
This Silence will be symbolic of where our club is heading if fans continue to be priced out. At the end of the ten minute silence, we urge everyone to get behind our team at full volume, again to demonstrate the difference between a full stadium and an empty one.
Should QPR score in that 10-minute period, all fans will be encouraged to celebrate per normal but we hope they will return to silence after play commences for the rest of the ten minutes.
This is not a protest against our Board of Directors and certainly not against our squad but against a policy which we believe is misguided and harmful to our Club and its reputation.
We will be meeting with Ali Russell on Tuesday in the hope that common sense will prevail and this protest will be unnecessary. Nevertheless if he continues to refuse to offer any concessions or guarantees on behalf of the Board then the protest will continue as planned.
We would ask all fans to join in this protest and hopefully encourage a rethink on a policy which will eventually ensure that for the majority of the existing fan base going to matches becomes a luxury that we and our families can no longer afford."
This sentiment is echoed here at Vital QPR.
Show your support for the club and the wider footballing community, and remain silent for the first ten minutes.
