Queens Park Rangers are to gift naming rights to their Loftus Road home to a charity from next season and have asked supporters to choose the cause.

QPR, who have played at Loftus Road for more than 100 years, have set a 3 May deadline for nominations.

Rangers have asked fans to consider the impact the charity they suggest has on the community, how the cause will "benefit from broader recognition" and if it has "appropriate internal infrastructure" to capitalise on any increased awareness.

Naming rights are often a lucrative source of income to clubs who choose to sell them, with Premier League clubs pulling in tens of millions of pounds, while League One club Peterborough recently agreed a 10-year deal worth £2m, which will see their ground renamed the Weston Homes Stadium.

After that a shortlist will be agreed, with supporters then given the chance to vote for their preferred choice.

Chief executive Lee Hoos said it will "help a charity get exposure they would never normally be able to achieve".

Supporters of the London side have been asked to nominate charities which have strong local connections to the club's base in Shepherd's Bush.
