London Mayor Boris Johnson couldn't give a definite answer when quizzed over whether West Ham could stop Tottenham Hotspur using the Olympic Stadium.
London Mayor Boris Johnson was non-committal when questioned over whether West Ham United would have the right to prevent Tottenham Hotspur from being able to use the Olympic Stadium at Stratford.
West Ham will move into the OS as tenants, and Johnson failed to give a definitive answer as his took questions over the matter at the London Assembly, which is the Mayor’s equivalent of Prime Minister’s questions.
Johnson was directly asked ‘Will they (West Ham) have the right of veto?’ as answers were sought over whether the Hammers would be able to prevent other sides from being able to use the stadium.
Johnson said he didn’t know whether it was an option for two Premier League clubs to share the stadium, as Spurs seek a temporary home for the 2017/2018 season as they wait for the development of White Hart Lane to be completed.
However, the Mayor also confirmed that no sides had come forward to challenge West Ham over their tenancy or to put forward any ground sharing option for the Premier League to mull over.
