West Ham submit bid to move into the Olympic Stadium

Fri 20th Aug 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

English West Ham’s proposal to move into the Olympic Stadium is among the 100-plus organisations expressing an interest in a post-games lease of the venue. Now the club have six weeks to finalise a proposal after the formal bidding process was launched.

Karren Brady, West Ham United vice-chairman, said: "We are incredibly excited to have reached this point in the process. The club has invested time and money to make sure the Olympic Stadium is the right choice for us and we are certain this is the case.

"Put simply, we believe we would be the best anchor tenant for the Olympic Stadium and it would also provide the best chance for West Ham United to grow and evolve in a way that fits with our proud traditions and history.

"We would not only incorporate Premier League football but are talking to athletics, cricket, rugby and other sporting institutions. It would be a true home for British excellence and provide the long-lasting conditions to create elite sportsmen and women of the future.

"The real danger is if the stadium and other facilities don't get used. We are really interested in giving usage not only to the Olympic Stadium but the whole Olympic Park so that it has a future beyond the Games. We offer a natural and logical solution."
