West Ham submit Olympic Stadium bid

West Ham United FC has submitted its joint bid with Newham Council to run the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Olympic Games.

The bid outlines plans which would see large parts of the stadium retained with modifications to have a 60,000-capacity and host football and athletics, alongside other major sports, concerts and community facilities.

West Ham players Scott Parker, Carlton Cole and Mark Noble were present to deliver the club’s bid to Downing Street.

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady said: "We believe this is the only bid that can deliver London's legacy commitment to the International Olympic Committee.

"As a top-flight football club we have the necessary expertise in running a major multi-purpose venue. Working with Newham Council we could ensure extensive use of the stadium that would create prosperity in the local area and see this club grow and move on to another level. Our plan to keep most of the stadium in place protects the public investment."
