Tottenham Hotspur joins bidders for Olympic Stadium

1 Oct 10 Tottenham Hotspur FC is the latest name to express an interest in taking over the London Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.

Tottenham Hotspur FC is the latest name to express an interest in taking over the London Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.

"I can confirm we have registered an interest in the Olympic Stadium site within the deadline of 30 September, in conjunction with AEG (Europe), the world's largest entertainment and facilities management company,” said Daniel Levy, the Tottenham chairman.

However, the football club's preferred option remains the redevelopment of its own stadium in the Northumberland Park area of Haringey.

This week, the local authority gave unanimous approval for the proposed Northumberland Development Project.

The plans would cost around £400m and would increase the capacity of the White Hart Lane stadium to 56,250.

Daniel Levy said he was pleased by Haringey's decision but warned “there is still much work to be done”.

The planning application will now be considered by the Mayor of London, who will make a decision within two weeks, then referred to the Secretary of State.
