West Ham Making 'Good Progress' In Quest To Make Move To London's Olympic Stadium
Published February 21, 2013
SPEEDING UP THE PROCESS: The London EVENING STANDARD reported talks between the two sides in the private meeting "were positive." London Mayor Boris Johnson "echoed those sentiments." Johnson said, "Tax payers put a huge amount of money, £500M ($667m), in to building an iconic stadium, and they put further money in to doing it up. We have got to get the best possible terms for the tax payer." If the deal is reached within weeks, that "will come as comforting news to organisers of the 2015 Rugby World Cup," who need to know by the end of next month whether they will be able to use the stadium for the event. Johnson said, "It would be great to do it" (EVENING STANDARD, 2/20).
