West Ham want Olympic Stadium



Having failed to become the permanent owner, the Hammers still intend to move to London's Olympic stadium. West Ham confirmed their intention to leave Upton Park to the stadium built for the 2012 London Olympics, after an offer to lease for 99 years. Last year, West Ham won the right to use the Olympic stadium in Stratford, but the deal was canceled after objections from Tottenham and Leyton Orient approved.


The manager of the stadium selection process was then repeated from the beginning again, but this time will be granted the right to use only 99 years, not permanent ownership. West Ham managed to submit a bid, and vice president of West Ham Karren Brady hope this successful bid.

"After spending two years for this project, I am proud to once again bid for West Ham became the principal owner of the Olympic stadium after the 2012 Olympics," said Brady, who promised to manage the stadium as early vision and claimed the support of the UK Athletics Association. Fund £ 35 million of public money has been set up to reduce the stadium capacity from 80,000 to 60,000, which is considered ideal for West Ham. West Ham's Upton Park cage is now only a capacity of 35 000 seats.
