Hammers make stadium claim

Published Add your comment

West Ham claim that moving to the Olympic Stadium is the only way that they will be able to develop into a major player in English football again.

Two weeks ago the Hammers, who were relegated to the npower Championship last season, declared they had renewed their application to move to the Olympic Stadium after their original bid collapsed in the wake of complaints from Tottenham and Leyton Orient.

Having inherited a club saddled with £100million of debt, co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are keen to bring in more money, with Hammers' marketing director Tara Warren saying:"It's the only way that the club can really grow. This is the only way we can move to the next level."
