Pink away strip generates mixed reviews as QPR fans react to launch

A fan waits outside ahead of the Sky Bet Championship match between QPR and Sunderland at Loftus Road on March 10, 2018 in London, England.

The traditional blue and white home kit has been warmly received but the new away kit has raised eyebrows among the Queens Park Rangers faithful.

Queens Park Rangers have released their new kit ahead of the 2018/19 Championship campaign and the fans have certainly had their say. 

Unlike recent seasons, the west Londoners have opted against a third kit and have decided upon a 'fuchsia pink' design as an away strip. It has certainly drawn considerable reaction online from QPR fans, with most somewhat unsure of the new look.

It is fair to say that Steve McClaren's side could play against anyone across the football pyramid in England and most likely not clash! 

Nonetheless, the shirt itself is manufactured by Errea and offers a two-tone pink hooped effect, but the traditional home shirt has been much more positively received. If anything, the famous blue and white jersey has undergone some minor tweaks and improvements from last season and offers similarities to QPR's 'Guinness' shirts from the early 1980's.

Tri-coloured detailing has been added to the neck and cuffs which has given the shirt a traditional and smart look to it. The blue, white and red colouring has gone down well with fans with some eager to get their hands on it as soon as it was released. 

QPR kick-off their Championship campaign away to Preston on August 4 and fans who make the trip to Deepdale will get to see firsthand if the new away shirt is a lucky charm or not.

Here is a selection of reaction from Rangers fans to the unveiling:
