Last updated : 06 April 2011 By Michael Morris

The charges relate to seven alleged breaches of Football Association rules regarding Argentinian midfielder Alejandro Faurlin.

A decision will be reached on May 6, the day before the Championship season ends.

The governing body said: "The FA can confirm an independent regulatory commission will shortly hear charges brought against QPR in relation to alleged breaches of FA rules. The hearing will commence on Tuesday 3 May, with a decision due on Friday 6 May.

"Queens Park Rangers FC has been charged with seven breaches of FA regulations. QPR and Mr [Gianni] Paladini [the chairman] have both indicated they are denying all of the charges and shall be contesting them at the hearing.

"The club charges relate to the player Alejandro Faurlín and concern the alleged existence of an agreement between the club and a third party in respect of the player's economic rights, and the alleged failure by the club to notify the FA of that agreement before the player was registered to play in England in July 2009.

"The club is also charged with allegedly using or seeking to pay an unauthorised agent in relation to the player's registration in July 2009.

"The club and Gianni Paladini are also charged in respect of allegedly false information contained in documents submitted to the FA in relation to the same player signing an extension to his playing contract with the club in October 2010. The FA, QPR and Mr Paladini shall be making no further comment until the charges are resolved."

If found guilty Rangers could be fined or docked points.
