West Ham United Ready To Move Into London's Olympic Stadium, Ensuring The Venue's Future
Published September 18, 2012
RUGBY WORLD CUP HOME: The London TELEGRAPH reported that 2015 Rugby World Cup organizers are "looking to feed off the success of the London Games" and use Olympic Stadium as a venue for the event. England Organizing Committee COO Ross Young said, "We have engaged with them from the very early part of this year and through the Olympic legacy company -- you would be mad not to include it as part of your thinking." The "strong ticket sales" that the Olympic Stadium would generate will help organizers hit their goal of netting a £100M ($162M) profit from the tournament (TELEGRAPH, 9/17).
