Spurs take action over stadium

The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC), which picked West Ham as

its preferred bidder ahead of Spurs to move into the stadium,

confirmed Tottenham are going ahead with a judicial review. The

north London club told the OPLC of their decision this week, as

construction on the Olympic Stadium was completed. An OPLC

spokesman said: “We can confirm that a letter before action in

relation to potential judicial review proceedings has been issued.

“The Olympic Park Legacy Company ran a very rigorous and

transparent process in its selection of the recommended preferred

bidder. “We have been supported by independent experts in their

field in terms of legal, financial, commercial and technical

advice. “We have been consistent, fair, objective and entirely

equal in our dealings with the bidders from start to finish. “We

are confident that if these judicial review proceedings are

pursued, our approach will be entirely vindicated by the courts.”
