QPR owner Flavio Briatore has confirmed that next season's shirts will retain the famous blue and white hoops after announcing a new kit deal with Lotto Sport Italia.
"I am delighted with the design of the new team strip, which maintains the QPR tradition of blue and white hoops," said Briatore.
"I know how important it is to the fans that the hoops remain, and that was always going to be the case."
The deal could be worth as much as £20m over five seasons, depending on the club's success - the most lucrative sponsorship deal in QPR's history.
Briatore, who announced the new agreement at a press conference at Loftus Road on Tuesday, added: "This is the first significant new partnership for the club since I became involved, and I am very excited about it.
"Lotto Sport Italia are the perfect fit as our new kit supplier, and I look forward to working with them over the next five years as we aim to achieve our objective of returning QPR to the Premiership."
The new kit design will be revealed at a later date, along with a shirt sponsor to replace Car Giant, the main sponsors for the past two seasons.
