Tottenham to take legal action over Olympic Stadium decision

Wed 30th Mar 2011 | Legal

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club will take Olympic chiefs to court over the decision to hand the 2012 stadium to West Ham after the Games.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC), which picked West Ham as its preferred bidder ahead of Spurs to move into the stadium, confirmed Tottenham are going ahead with a judicial review.

The north London club told the OPLC of their decision this week, as construction on the Olympic Stadium was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.

An OPLC spokesman said: "We can confirm that a letter before action in relation to potential judicial review proceedings has been issued.

"The Olympic Park Legacy Company ran a very rigorous and transparent process in its selection of the recommended preferred bidder.

"We have been supported by independent experts in their field in terms of legal, financial, commercial and technical advice.

"We have been consistent, fair, objective and entirely equal in our dealings with the bidders from start to finish.

"We are confident that if these judicial review proceedings are pursued, our approach will be entirely vindicated by the courts."
