New Agreement With Local Government Brings Tottenham Closer To Securing New Stadium

SWEET 16: The PA reports English soccer club West Ham United is one of "16 parties interested in moving to the Olympic Stadium after this summer's London Games." The original deal for West Ham to take over the venue "collapsed in October amid concerns over delays caused by the legal dispute" with Tottenham and English soccer club Leyton Orient. West Ham remains the favorite to "become the tenants, although the Olympic Park Legacy Company confirmed it would accept a ground-share bid from a football and a rugby team, and said retaining the athletics track was non-negotiable" (PA, 2/1).
