West Ham's Olympic Stadium Hopes Put On Hold Again By Legacy Development Corp.
West Ham United confirmed that "a long-delayed decision over their bid to move into the Olympic Stadium has been postponed," according to Owen Gibson of the LONDON GUARDIAN. The London Legacy Development Corporation board met on Monday but was told that talks with West Ham "had yet to reach a definitive conclusion." West Ham co-owner David Gold tweeted: "Sadly the decision on the Olympic Stadium has been postponed. We must be patient but resolute." The LLDC wants to ensure that West Ham will make "a meaningful contribution to the conversion costs" and is adamant the stadium "could pay for itself without football if necessary." LDC CEO Dennis Hone, has said the decision could take a couple of months (GUARDIAN, 10/15).
