English Football League One club Leyton Orient and Guiness Premiership rugby clubs Saracens and Wasps reportedly have withdrawn their interest in relocating to the stadium, which instead will "host international and domestic athletics meetings as well as grass-roots sports and other events such as music concerts" (London TELEGRAPH, 2/11).
