Description

it was built in 1928 and had a capacity of 80,000 people. The White City Stadium was built for the 1908 Olympic Games. It formed part of the Franco-British exhibition site, an 140-acre complex of palaces and exhibition buildings. The white exterior of these buildings made it so that the stadium was dubbed "White City."

The stadium was built after the city of Rome, which had been initially awarded the 1908 Olympics, failed to meet its financial obligations and the Games were moved to London instead. The stadium could hold a total of 93,000 visitors.

The Olympics hosted a variety of events, including athletics, football, and cycling. The main event was the finish of the first modern marathon.

The stadium was not frequently used after the Olympics, but was taken over by the Greyhound Racing Association in 1927 and from then on mainly hosted greyhound racing and speedway. Other sports such as rugby, boxing, and athletics also found their way to the stadium.

White City Stadium hosted one game at the 1966 World Cup. This was a group match between Uruguay and France, which resulted in a 2-1 victory for France. The match originally planned to be played at Wembley Stadium, however when Wembley's owner refused to reschedule a previously planned dog race, the match was moved to White City instead.

In the 1930s and 1960s, Queens Park Rangers used the stadium as their home for short spells, being unsatisfied with the conditions at their nearby Loftus Road stadium. However both times, the club moved back swiftly.

The Stadium was almost exclusively used for Dog Races in the 1980s. It was demolished in 1984 to make way for additional buildings to the BBC's adjacent White City complex. The last event held at the Stadium, on September 22nd, 1984 was a Greyhound Race.

You can see the dogs racing and the tellers using hand signals to take the bets. My dad as a child used to watch the dog racing there after playing on all the bombsites, then the Speedway in his 20s.

The first time I felt sadness at a non-physical loss was the demolition of that iconic stadium, for a building that was to be for BBC radio stations and suchlike in the endjust offices. Sad!

I cannot find any information anywhere else and the English FA have not even bothered to respond to my enquiries. I would be grateful for any information or suggestions.

Even after promotion he was still called upon to drive the hare for the Greyhound Derby. Although various sports have been mentioned, nobody has mentioned Stock-car racing and Banger racing that also took place at the stadium.

I was wondering if you could help me with finding any information about my father. He worked at the track in the early fifties and I have no photo of him. He passed away in 1958 aged 36 years.

Attached to a silver pocket watch chain I bought a number of years ago, there is a silver medal commemorating the first floodlight match at White City, on 14-12-1932. This seems to be during one of the QPR spells there. Has anyone any further information about that bit of history? Thanks for your kind attention, Ivo.

There will never again be the intense excitement you felt during a greyhound race final night! Bands will be playing on the centre field, and the starting pistol for the greatest sporting event of any year bar none! And I?ve been to the Olympics, numerous Wembley cup finals, F1 races around the world, nothing comes close to one of those magic nights. When the man in the white uniform rang that bell from the inner field you dook with anticipation, you were never disappointed no matter what the result, just a feeling that you?d just witnessed and been part of the greatest event in sport!.

Family tradition has it that he was involved in the construction of the White City, most probably as a carter and also we think as a gang leader. I believe he was transporting cement. Are there any records of the men who worked on the construction?

I am conducting a research study on the life of my grandfather, William Barton. According to family tradition, he was involved in the construction of the White City as a carter and gang leader. It is my belief that he transported cement during this time.

It is regrettable that the site did not survive until now, when the new wealthy owners of QPR arrived on the scene. The BBC would have benefited greatly from leasing the site for their new office space, as they have essentially abandoned the iconic TV Centre next door.

I believe you are being a little unfair in your assessment of the 1908 Olympics, wasn't there a natural disaster in Italy which necessitated the diversion of funds earmarked for the Games to the relief operations?

It is regrettable that the site didn't survive until the present wealthy owners of QPR arrived on the scene, as it would have been perfect for their new home ground. Was the BBC really necessary to build all that new office space when they have essentially abandoned the iconic TV Centre next door?

As a child, I would go to the dog track on Thursday nights and if I won, I would go back again on Saturday. Those were lovely days and I look back and think how lucky I am to have had such a happy childhood.
