With the most recent update from West Ham United being very positive about adopting the newly built Olympic Stadium it has opened the concern of whether the Olympic legacy will be maintained by the football club. Olympic legacy leader Sebastian Coe has pushed for the athletics track to be maintained following the Olympics, West Ham support this but Tottenham do not. Through supporting this lead of legacy it heightens West Ham’s chances of housing their football at the Olympic Stadium following the games.
The plans are to downsize the stadium to a 60,000 seater stadium which is essence is removing some of the legacy the games will hold, but on the other hand if their fan base is not big enough to fill the stadium then it will be killing the atmosphere of the £468 million venue. Although it has recently been speculated that the stadium will be reduced to a “25,000 seater bowl“.
