Description:
The history of Queens Park Rangers Football Club (often abbreviated to QPR) began when the team was formed in 1882. In the early part of the 20th century, the club fielded teams in both the Southern League and the Western League. In 1920 all teams in the Southern League, of which QPR were one, were incorporated en-masse to the new Football League Third Division. They have remained in the Football League ever since, with the vast majority of the time being spent in the top two divisions; formerly Football League First Division and Football League Second Division, which have been succeeded by the Premier League and Football League Championship.

QPR became a professional team in 1889 and played their home games in nearly 20 different stadia (a league record), before permanently settling in Loftus Road in 1917 (although the team briefly played at White City between 1931-3 and 1962-63 in the hope of attracting larger crowds).Inglis, Simon: Football Grounds of Britain, page 305-6.
