No ground share without our say so, insist West Ham

West Ham United have refuted claims by the LLDC that another club could potentially ground share at the Olympic Stadium without the club's agreement.

A spokesman for the London Legacy Development Corporation told a tribunal yesterday that either - or both - Chelsea and Tottenham could potentially feature at the Olympic Stadium alongside the Hammers.

However a spokesman for West Ham has told KUMB.com that this is NOT possible without the club's agreement.

"As anchor tenant we have primacy of use during the football season and our contract gives us overriding priority to use the stadium, ensuring our‎ fixtures and events are ring-fenced and will always take priority over all‎ other events," they said.

"It would therefore be impossible to accommodate the fixtures of another Premier League club without West Ham agreeing, a position which was fully supported at yesterday's hearing.‎"

The tribunal is taking place at the behest of the LLDC, who are contesting a ruling by the Information Commissioner ordering the organisation to place details of its arrangement with West Ham in the public domain.

West Ham were not represented at the tribunal.
