Spurs look east to Olympic solution

Published Add your comment

Tottenham confirmed on Friday morning that they have registered an interest in occupying the Olympic Stadium in east London after the 2012 Games.

Spurs, who on Thursday night had a planning application for a new stadium approved by Haringey Council, have also joined fellow Barclays Premier League club West Ham in expressing an interest in the Olympic Stadium in Stratford.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said in a statement issued on Friday morning: "I can also confirm we have registered an interest in the Olympic Stadium site within the deadline of September 30, in conjunction with AEG (Europe), the world's largest entertainment and facilities management company."

The statement continued: "It is only prudent and good management that we ensure that we investigate all possible options for the club.

"We were informed by the Olympic Park Legacy Company that were we not to register an interest at this time, there would not be an opportunity at any future date.

"We have always maintained that we wouldn't undertake any project that could undermine the overall financial stability and future success of the club and this shall remain our guiding principle going forward and in determining our best option in the interests of the club and all its fans and stakeholders."
