GOVERNMENT AND MAYOR APPROVE OUR STADIUM RECOMMENDATION

The Government and the Mayor of London have today approved the Olympic Park Legacy Company’s recommendation for West Ham United and the London Borough of Newham as the preferred bidder for the long-term lease of the Stadium after the Games.

This completes the first stage of this process and means that we are now able to enter into negotiations to agree a lease for the Stadium.

We are pleased that the Mayor and Ministers have approved our recommendation. We look forward to working with the preferred bidder in order to bring the future of the Stadium to a financial close.
