West Ham turn down Olympic Stadium share

1 June 2012 17:06

West Ham have confirmed that no discussions have been held with Leyton Orient over a ground share for the Olympic Stadium.

Orient chairman Barry Hearn had said that he would be interested in a possible arrangement, despite criticising the stadium as unfit for football.

"Subject to the changes West Ham are asking for, namely covering the running track, we'd be interested in bidding for the stadium as part of a ground-share with them.," Hearn told BBC Sport.

"We will now talk with the Olympic authorities."

The Hammers re-launched their bid for the Olympic Stadium in March, and were confirmed to be one of four parties interested in taking over the ground following the Olympics this summer.

The club statement said: "West Ham United has not held talks with Leyton Orient in respect of ground sharing and nor is it our intention to do so.

"We do not wish to comment on recent statements made by Barry Hearn not least because we can't keep up with his ever-changing position.

"They continue, however, to provide us with a constant source of amusement.”

Leyton Orient fear that if West Ham are granted permission to take over the stadium, which will be turned into a 60,000-capacity all-seater ground after the Games, attendance at nearby Brisbane Road may be affected.
