We welcome today’s ruling and are pleased that Mr Justice Lewis agrees that we ran a fair, open and transparent competition to appoint concessionaires for the Stadium.

We believe the agreement we have with West Ham United Football Club and UK Athletics will deliver a fantastic sporting and community legacy in east London and represents the best deal for the taxpayer.

Work is now underway to transform the Stadium into a year round multi-use venue for sports, cultural and community events that will generate hundreds of new jobs, attract many thousands of visitors and act as a catalyst for further economic investment and growth in the area.
