Olympic Stadium Decision Postponed: West Ham and Tottenham Await Verdict

Who will win fight to take over brand spanking new venue?

A decision on the future use of the 2012 Olympic Stadium, scheduled for Friday, has been postponed.
The Olympic Park Legacy Company says it needs more time to study rival bids from Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham.
West Ham have pledged to retain the athletics track, but Spurs would demolish the £537m stadium and rebuild it as a football-only venue.
The OPLC is in charge of securing an economically viable future for the Olympic Park after the 2012 Games.
A spokesman said: “Given the detailed nature of both bids received, we need more time to seek further clarification with both bidders in order to identify a preferred bidder.
“The stadium is a significant public asset and we have a duty to run a robust process. (BBC Sport)

It seems that this hot potato refuses to cool down and now all the parties vying to take over the Olympic stadium must wait that little bit longer before they get their hands on it.
