Breaking News: West Ham Submit New Bid for the Olympic Stadium

Breaking story: West Ham Football Club have submitted a new bid on the London Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.

The Championship football club had already submitted a bid in October last year, however the deal collapsed.

West Ham FC are one of only 16 other interested parties to enter the tender process, with bidders given until Friday to submit their proposals.

The West Ham vice-chairman, Karren Brady, said that the move would be conditional on the Olympic stadium being “fit for world-class football and feels like home to our deserving fans.”

The original deal with West Ham to take over the London 2012 stadium fell through following complaints from Tottenham FC, Leyton Orient FC and another anonymous party.

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) decided to begin the tender process again, but this time offered the Olympic stadium on a lease, rather than a permanent sale.

Karren Brady said the decision “had not been taken lightly” to apply for a 99 year lease of the stadium, which is reported to have cost £486m to build in time for the London Olympic Games.

The OLPC has made it very clear that they want their new tenants to retain the running track at the stadium, which is due to host the World Athletics Championships in 2017.

The successful bidder will be announced in May, two months before the Olympic Games begin on 27th July.
