QPR set to change club badge

Queens Park Rangers Chairman Tony Fernandes has confirmed on Twitter today that he will be exploring options of a “badge update” for the 2015/16 season.

The Championship leaders currently managed by Harry Redknapp have only had their current design since 2008.

The London club will join teams such as Everton and Cardiff who have also changed their emblem in recent years.

Fernandes, 49, who also owns airline company “Air Asia” and Car manufacturer “Lotus” said on the social networking site that it “must be done by end of Feb” and that he had a “feeling it will be based on old logo arms refresh” and he’s “excited” by the idea.

The QPR owner also retweeted a fan’s suggestion that it would be best to have several suggestions based on old and new designs and that the fans should then vote on what the new badge will be. Fernandes also then tweeted his “fave” crest was the one used from the 1980′s through to 2008.


Tony Fernandes will be hoping his idea to let the fans choose the badge will eliminate the possibility of controversy that followed Everton’s re-design this Summer after the Merseyside outfit removed the Latin phrase “Nil Satis Nisi Optimism”.
