London football club Queens Park Rangers, or QPR, announced that they are renaming their Loftus Road stadium to The Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium, in memory of a youth player who was murdered.

Kiyan Prince was a youth player who was stabbed outside QPR’s stadium when he was trying to break up a fight. The wound was fatal and Kiyan’s family were left devastated, as their son was killed at just 15 years old. In Kiyan’s memory, his father set up the Kiyan Prince Foundation, a charity which looked to work with young people to reduce knife crime.
