On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day

The battle for the Olympic Stadium will finally end later this morning when the OPLC announce their preferred bidder.

Both West Ham and Tottenham have been vying for the rights to use the stadium post-2012 games for the last few weeks, with exchanges becoming increasingly bitter in the past few days as each side sought to gain an advantage on the other.

However hostilities will finally end (temporarily, at least) when the Legacy Committee reveal which of the two clubs will receive their backing to move to Stratford at 11am this morning.

West Ham are considered to be hot favourites following a BBC leak on Wednesday night that suggested they had won the race. However this was later denied by the OPLC who insisted that they were yet to make a decision.

That leak enraged Tottenham and Orient supremo Barry Hearn, both of whom hinted that they are ready to take legal action should West Ham be granted use of the 500million stadium.
