The role of E20 is to ensure the London Stadium is integrated with the surrounding communities; contributes to local regeneration and social improvement aims; creates strong linkages with local sport clubs and educational bodies and delivers a financial return.
In March 2013, West Ham United Football Club was confirmed as the Stadium’s long-term concessionaire with a 99 year concession commencing in 2016. In July 2013, UK Athletics agreed a 50 year concession with the Stadium becoming the new national competition centre for athletics.
In February 2015, London Stadium 185 (LS185), a subsidiary of VINCI Stadium, was appointed by E20 to operate the venue on a day-to-day basis. In January 2019, E20 agreed with VINCI Stadium for E20 to take on the business and bring it in-house. LS185 continues to be responsible for all aspects of running and managing the Stadium as well as bringing in new events and activity. Events staged to date include the London 2017 World Athletics Championships, Premier League football, Rugby Union Premiership and concerts by some of the world’s leading bands.
