It has caused a bit of a stir with many people wondering why two clubs in the same division have chosen to face one another weeks before the season kicks off, especially two west London rivals.
There is a reasoning behind it, however, with both clubs eager to tests themselves in a controlled environment against teams in their own division.
It mostly comes down to what QPR wanted from their pre-season, with Ian Holloway extremely keen to play a couple of fixtures against Championship sides, despite it being a bit unorthodox.
The venue of the game, which will be the training ground at Motspur, has been chosen with two things in mind - firstly, it removes the crowd from the equation so the players will feel no added incentive of it being a west London derby, even if it is in pre-season.
Secondly, playing the game at Motpsur will allow Fulham to have access to all their sports science equipment at the site, meaning they can monitor players before, during and after the game, which will aid them as they look to ensure the squad are in peak physical condition ahead of the season opener.
It's a win-win for Fulham - they get an extra game in pre-season and they don't need to travel to play it, it's essentially an extra training session against players they will be facing later in the season.
