Newcastle United tops the ‘Door to Turnstile’ list
The ground of Queen’s Park Rangers has been deemed the second worst in the Premier League for fans to travel to, according to a study.
It may be served by three tube stations and a number of bus routes but the site in Loftus Road, White City, came 19th out of 20.
The list was compiled using research carried out by Campaign for Better Transport and the Football Supporters Federation (FSF).
The ‘Door to Turnstile’ report identified the best and worst clubs after spending the season examining fans’ travel habits by carrying out a survey, collecting views from supporters and assessing travel information and travel planning.

Reading came bottom of the list after it was deemed it was ‘virtually unreachable’ to travel to Madejeski Stadium by regular public transport.
Arsenal was commended for cutting car trips and contributing to tube station improvements near the Emirates, Tottenham Hotspur was praised for supporting new train and bus services to White Hart Lane and Fulham got the thumbs up for its measures to promote walking and cycling to Craven Cottage.
Malcolm Clark, chair of FSF, said: “Fans go to enormous lengths to see their team play home and away.
“Many fans prefer to leave their cars at home and enjoy the day without hassle.
“Making match day travel more convenient, pleasant and affordable would benefit everyone involved in football, and we hope to see these ideas employed more widely in future.”
A spokesman for QPR declined to comment.
