Further to this morning’s confirmation that West Ham United's move to the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games has been approved, UKA Chairman Ed Warner commented:

“We are delighted that the Government and the Mayor have ratified the OPLC's decision to proceed with West Ham as the preferred bidder for the Olympic Stadium. The process undertaken by the OPLC was robust and thorough and this announcement today is testament to that.

“We would like to thank the OPLC, and in particular Margaret Ford and Andrew Altman, for their commitment to an athletics legacy and the way in which they have kept us involved and informed throughout the process.”

West Ham was selected as the preferred tenant for the east London venue by the Olympic Park Legacy Company over a rival bid from Tottenham Hotspur.

That decision has today been ratified by the government and the mayor of London.
