Purposely built for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, The Olympic Stadium is based in Stratford in East London. The stadium was completed in 2011 in ample time for the 2012 games at a cost of £486 million. The Olympic Stadium has a capacity of 80,000 and will host track and field events during the summer games in London.
After the stadium has been used for the 2012 Olympic Games, the stadium will most probably be handed to a professional football club on a long term lease. The interested parties include Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham Utd and Leyton Orient. In 2011 West Ham seemed to be awarded the site following the games, however the decision will now be made following a judicial review. West Ham would appear to be front runners as they are currently located in East London and are in need of an upgrade to their current stadium Upton Park. Much of the decision lies on the legacy that the games will leave in both the city of London and in Stratford, therefore much of the debate is about whether the running track should remain with a view to staging athletics events in the future.
Getting to the Olympic Stadium
The best way to get to the stadium is by tube or national rail services. You will be able to stop at West Ham or Stratford tube stops, or at Stratford International Railway Station. Help will be on hand from hundreds of Olympic volunteers when visiting during the games.
