Queens Park Rangers Football Club (usually referred to as QPR, also known as the Rangers, the Rs or the Hoops) are an English professional football club, based in Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith and Fulham, west London. They currently play in the Football League Championship, and their honours include winning the League Cup in 1967, and being runners-up in the old First Division in 1975–76 and FA Cup in 1982.

Queens Park Rangers Football Club were founded in 1882, and their traditional colours are blue and white. In the early years after the club's formation in their original home of Queen's Park, games were played at many different grounds until finally the club settled into their current location at Loftus Road. Owing to their proximity to other west London clubs, QPR maintain long-standing rivalries with several other clubs in the area. The most notable of these are Chelsea, Fulham and Brentford with whom they contest what are known as West London derbies.

The current chairman of the club is Indian businessman Ishan Saksena, and the manager is former Sheffield United and Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock, who has also played for teams such as Hartlepool United and Scunthorpe United in a very successful footballing career spanning nearly fifty years.
