Running track must remain at Olympic Stadium


Any outside hope which Tottenham may have had in moving to the Olympic Stadium have taken a dent after legacy officials nsisted a running track must remain at the venue.

Tottenham’s first preference is to redevelop the stadium at White Hart Lane, but have also registered an interest in moving to the Olympic Stadium which has infuriated West Ham.

Baroness Ford, chair of the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) said: “Bidders would have to meet the Olympic promise for use of an athletics stadium – that has not changed,”

“We want this to be a mixed use and sports stadium,” she added.

Hugh Robertson, who was made Olympics minister in May, also shares the same thoughts as Baroness Ford.

“Athletics was an absolute core part our bid and it will continue to be part of it,” he said.

  1. I agree leave the running track in place in fact don’t do a thing to it from a Tottenham point of view because I for one am not happy with the idea of moving my beloved Spurs to Stratford. How can we have a north London grudge match if we don’t live in north London? That lot up the road already think they’re the only team in north London don’t just move out and hand it to em.
