Tottenham Hotspur's attempts to block West Ham's move into the Olympic Stadium after the London 2012 Games have been rejected by the courts. Spurs, along with Leyton Orient, were seeking a judicial review of the process behind the Olympic Park Legacy Company's decision in favour of the Hammers.

West Ham plan to reduce the stadium's capacity from 80,000 to 60,000 seats after 2012 and use it as a multipurpose venue, fulfilling Britain's promise to retain a running track there.
