Football and rugby clubs could team up to use the Olympic Stadium after the London 2012 Games.

The new bidding process to use the stadium after the Games opens on Tuesday. West Ham are favourites to become the tenants but the Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) have confirmed they will accept a ground-share bid from a football and a rugby team, and that retaining the athletics track is non-negotiable.

The Liberty Stadium in Swansea, home to Swansea City and the Ospreys, is seen as a successful model of a ground-share scheme. The OPLC will also be open to selling the naming rights on the stadium, with the tenants receiving a cut of the income.
