We woke up to widespread ‘news’ this morning, claiming that West Ham’s bid for the Olympic stadium had been successful and accepted by the Olympic Park Legacy Commitee.
However, the OPLC have subsequently dismissed these stories: “It is pure speculation to say that a decision has been made. Our board meets on Friday. There will be presentations by OPLC officers of both bids and a vote to recommend a preferred bidder.
“The 14 voting members of the OPLC board are gathering for a special meeting where the future of the Olympic Stadium will be the only item on the agenda.
“The meeting could take up to three hours and a final decision will have to get the go-ahead from the Government and the London Mayor. “
So it’s not over yet, but soon will be. So was this just speculation, or a ‘leak’?
