Championship return: QPR ‘appalled’ by EFL plans for 20 June restart

Lee Hoos said QPR’s players had not yet returned to full-contact training

QPR chief executive Lee Hoos says the club is “appalled by” and “vehemently opposed to” the English Football League’s plans for the Championship to return on 20 June.

Hoos says there was “absolutely no consultation” on the matter, claiming clubs learned of the news just before it came out at 21:00 BST on Sunday.

“I am absolutely stunned by this announcement,” he added.

No Championship fixtures have been played since 8 March.

“Incredibly, there has been absolutely no consultation with individual clubs nor with the Championship doctors’ working group by the divisional representatives – or anyone else in the Football League – regarding this matter,” Hoos told the QPR website.
