QPR will take on Leeds at Loftus Road in their opening game of the 2016-17 Championship campaign.
“Leeds at home is a great fixture to start our season and we can really put a marker down about how we want our season to go with a good performance there,” Washington told QPR’s official website.
QPR endured a disappointing season in 2015-16 and failed to finish in the top 10 of the Championship.
Rangers are unlikely to be able to compete for a top-two spot in the Championship next season, but they should be targeting the playoffs.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is a very good manager, and if he is able to make a few good signings in the summer transfer window, then he should be able to at least make the team competitive enough for a top-six challenge.
Leeds will also be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship next season.
The West Yorkshire outfit have a new head coach in charge, Garry Monk, who is also a brilliant manager.
Washington, who is 24 years of age, created nine chances in 15 Championship appearances for QPR during the 2015-16 season following his move from Peterborough United in the January transfer window.
