Rugby union team London Wasps shared the ground with QPR between 1996 and 2002 and Premier League football club Fulham shared it from 2002 to 2004 while Craven Cottage was closed for reconstruction. Other users of the stadium have included the Jamaican and Australian national football teams. In 1985, Barry McGuigan defeated Eusebio Pedroza for the World Boxing Association featherweight championship at the stadium.
The ground was first used on 11 October 1904 by Shepherd's Bush F.C., an amateur side that was disbanded during the First World War. QPR moved to Loftus Road in 1917, having had their ground at Park Royal commandeered by the army in 1915. At that time the ground was an open field with a pavilion. One stand from Park Royal was dismantled and re-erected forming the Ellerslie Road stand in 1919. This stand remained as the only covered seating in the ground until 1968 and was replaced in 1972. It had a capacity of 2,950.

An old stadium with character where you stand close to the pitch but in reality needs demolishing and replaced with a new one giving decent facilities for the fans to enjoy. The away end gives restricted views and has poor facilities. Glad I went but would not hurry back. Home fans friendly but deserve better.
Not the best if grounds to watch football. Fortunately it was a high scoring game but not comfortable experience ... The legroom is terrible although to be far the seats had bit of cushion to them. The stand has posts still that restrict view of goal even from half way line seats. And the refreshment area walkway is very pokey. Sorry but I have been to better grounds in League One and Two.
