Vote now in KUMB.com's latest Olympic Stadium poll: it may be the last opportunity to have your voice heard!
With the Board having thus far refused to ballot more than a select group of supporters over the club's proposed move to Stratford in two years' time, KUMB.com's latest poll on the OS - our fourth since January 2010 (see previous poll results) could represent your final chance to have a say in the matter.
Whilst the club revealed some details of their proposal for Stratford to a select group of around 60 fans who attended last night's Supporters' Advisory Board meeting, the views of the vast majority of supporters remain unheard - and, according to co-owner David Sullivan recently, that is how it shall remain.
Despite the Board being unable to conduct an official poll of supporters' views, fans can still vote in our fourth (and final) poll, which is being monitored by the club, on West Ham's proposed move to Stratford. To do so, simply visit our Olympic Stadium thread here on the KUMB forums.
Please note that in order to vote, you must be a registered member of KUMB.com; if you are not already a member, you may obtain free membership here*.
Potential tenants of the £500million stadium have until 23rd March to submit their proposals, with the Goverment having started a new tender process back in December following the collapse of the original process.
The original decision to award use of the stadium to West Ham United was reversed following a series of legal challenges by Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient, who argued that United's joint bid with Newham Council had been given preferential treatment.
According to the Olympic Park Legacy Company earlier this month, at least 16 parties have registered their interest in using the stadium following this summer's Olympic Games - one of whom is West Ham United FC.

''Can someone tell me when did Karen Brady became the voice of the East End and the keeper of the History of the Hammers?
We all want West Ham to be successful, but we all know the Olympic Stadium as a ground will ruin the atmosphere of watching West Ham for the fan. Remember them Karen, the fans? And where are the two Davids? (Remember those East End, Hammer-loving boys-done-good who represent us all)…
The Olympic Stadium will not work as a football ground, we all know it and any amount of publicity from a competent accountant who can see pound signs in front of her eyes for this “business opportunity” will not convince me (or I suspect a majority of fans) otherwise.
Time for the owners - not their hired help - to ask the fans!''

''No, really don't want us to move to the Olympic Stadium. Upton Park is home and if it was developed to 40,000 it would be larger than White Hart Lane, with only Stamford Bridge and the Emirates ahead in capacity of West Ham in the London clubs.''
