Have your say

Who do you think should have been awarded the Olympic Stadium?

WEST Ham United has been selected as the preferred club to move into the Olympic Stadium in east London after the 2012 Games.

Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) executives chose the club’s bid over a rival proposal from Tottenham Hotspur.

The decision must now be ratified by two government departments and the mayor of London, possibly next week.

The vote in favour of West Ham’s bid for the £537m venue was unanimous. It was judged to provide the best legacy.

Spurs’ plan was widely criticised because it would involve knocking down the stadium and building a new one.
