Mayor approves Olympic Stadium move
Friday 04 March 2011
London Mayor Boris Johnson feels the decision to allow West Ham United to take over the Olympic Stadium will prevent the venue becoming "a dust bowl" staging occasional athletics events.
The Government and Mayor yesterday gave their approval to the Olympic Park Legacy Company's recommendation that West Ham be chosen as the future tenants of the stadium, ahead of Tottenham.
"I am confident that West Ham will provide a secure future for the stadium," Johnson said. "Which also sees its iconic design for the London Games retained for future generations. We can look forward to a fantastic multi-use venue at the heart of the community."
