League One Side Leyton Orient Fights High Court For Move To Olympic Stadium
Published March 7, 2013
POSSIBLE DELAY LOOMING: REUTERS' Martyn Herman reported an announcement confirming West Ham has "the green light to move in to a scaled down 60,000-seater stadium is expected in the next few weeks, although Hearn's legal challenge could further delay securing its future use." Hearn said that Orient's ground "is 750 metres from the boundary of the Olympic Park and believes West Ham's ability to offer cheaper tickets in a 60,000-seat stadium would undermine his club's ability to retain its fan-base." Hearn said, "West Ham moving to the Olympic Park will put a huge amount of pressure on Leyton Orient to survive at all. We are 750 yards away (from the Park) trying to compete with Premiership football. We have no chance in the long-term. The common sense way out is; why don't we share the ground?" (REUTERS, 3/6).
