F1 and West Ham bid for Olympic Park

Formula One, West Ham United, Leyton Orient and UCFB College of Football Business have all put in bids to take over the Olympic Stadium. The London Legacy Development Corporation revealed that the four organisations are interested in becoming the new tenants – each will be assessed ahead of contract negotiations.

Daniel Moylan, chairman, London Legacy Development Corporation, said: “London is further ahead in planning legacy than any previous host Olympic city. Despite our success this is no time to rest on our laurels. We have planned a superb Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and we are working to ensure we achieve the right long term future for all our permanent venues. “This is simply unprecedented in the history of the Games. While there is still a way to go, we should be proud of the achievements so far in planning a new part of London with new homes, jobs and a set of thriving sporting venues for everyone to enjoy.”
