West Ham's new Olympic Stadium bid 'flawed'
Friday 06 April 2012
West Ham's latest bid to move into the Olympic Stadium is "fundamentally flawed" and should be disqualified, according to the Leyton Orient chairman, Barry Hearn.
West Ham have declared their renewed application to move from Upton Park after the collapse of their original attempt following legal challenges from Orient and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Championship club have applied for a 99-year lease of the stadium, but Hearn is now demanding the bid is rejected.
"I am 100 per cent certain that West Ham do not have the permission of the Football League, a fundamental criteria of the bid process," Hearn told the BBC.
