Spurs to press ahead with legal action over Olympic Stadium

 

Tottenham Hotspur are to launch a judicial review against the decision by Olympic chiefs to award West Ham the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 games. A spokesman for the Olympic Park Legacy Company confirmed that Tottenham had issued “a letter before action in relation to potential judicial review proceedings”. The court action will involve the joint OPLC owners the UK government and the office of the Mayor of London. They have four weeks to respond to Tottenham’s letter at which time the football club will be required to make a decision on whether to pursue the action by serving papers to the High Court. The OPLC spokesman added that the group is confident that its decision will be vindicated should judicial review proceedings go ahead.
