Tottenham show interest in London Olympic Stadium

Tue 27th Jul 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

It has been reported that Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has held informal talks with the Olympic Park Legacy Company over the possibility of moving into the stadium after the Olympic Games.

According to the BBC it is understood that the North London club are keen to explore the possibility of using the ground but as yet to submit a bid for the 80,000-seat Stratford stadium.

West Ham is the only club to have officially bid for the venue submitting plans to reduce the capacity to 60,000, while entertainment firm AEG, owner of the O2 Arena, is the other main contender.

However, a spokeswoman for Tottenham Hotspur told Soccerex daily that there have been no formal negotiations, saying: "Tottenham Hotspur has not, to date, submitted a bid for the Olympic Stadium and, all things proceeding well with our current plans to build a new stadium within Tottenham, we see no need to."

Tottenham are currently in the planning stages to redevelop their ground White Hart Lane and the surrounding area. They have however, faced a number of objections to their plans from the local council and heritage campaigners.

The club had hoped to have the new stadium ready by the 2014 season a time scale which is looking increasingly unlikely.
