West Ham's Future With London's Olympic Stadium Remains Unresolved
Published October 11, 2012
OUR HOUSE: In London, Gibson added that Hone dismissed West Ham's concerns that the stadium "would not feel like their own" if they had to share it with Football League One's Leyton Orient. Hone: "You've got Milan and Inter. You've got Lazio and Roma. They can dress the stadium between games, so that everyone feels like it's their home ground. That's absolutely doable." Hone is "keen to emphasise the progress that has been made in planning for the future of a Park" through which more than 10 million ticket holders passed during both Games. Hone insisted that the Park, which will eventually contain 8,000 houses, "will have sport at its heart in much the same way as the 1951 Festival of Britain left behind a cultural legacy on London's South Bank." Hone: "This is the Olympics, so the legacy has to be sport. We want a full offer of different things, but sport has got to be one of the key things" (GUARDIAN, 10/10).
