West Ham Submit Olympic Stadium Bid
West Ham and Newham Council have submitted a joint bid to move into the Olympic Stadium after the 2010 London Olympics.
Some key proposals of the joint West Ham and Newham Council bid include:
- capacity reduced to 60,000
- the retention of the athletics track around the pitch
- a second running track next to the stadium, (which athletics club Newham and Essex Beagles would use)
- The University of East London would have access to the stadium's sport and learning facilities
