Olympic Stadium decision on hold

24th Jan 2011

A decision to select the future tenants of the Olympic Stadium in east London has been postponed.

Premier League football clubs West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur are vying for the right to move into the stadium following the Olympic Games next year.

However, controversy over Tottenham’s plan to rip-up the athletics track appears to have delayed the decision.

Yesterday London 2012 chief Sebastian Coe offered his support to the West Ham bid for the stadium.

West Ham have pledged to maintain the athletics track at the venue in a deal with Newham Council.

A decision had been expected at the end of this week following an Olympic Park Legacy Company committee meeting.

No timetable for the rescheduled decision has yet been announced.
