Valencia owner requests OS meeting


Filed: Tuesday, 17th October 2017

Valencia owner Peter Lim is reported to have requested a meeting with West Ham chiefs - so that his club can avoid making the same mistakes United made when moving to the Olympic Stadium.

Los Che are preparing to leave the Mestalla, Valencia's home for the last 95 years in the near future.

And according to local paper Super Deporte, Lim - a Singaporean businessman who owns an 82.3 per cent stake in the club (in addition to 50 per cent of Salford FC) - has written to West Ham to request a meeting regarding the stadium move.

Unlike West Ham, whose only interaction was via the oft-derided 'Supporter Advisory Board', Valencia have appointed a 'supporters chief' to act as a bridge between the club and the supporters ahead of their move.

Construction of Valencia's new stadium - to be known as the Nou Mestalla - actually began 11 years ago, but was halted in 2009 for financial reasons with only the primary concrete structure in place.

"The club will start the proceedings with the town hall to get the permissions required for a renewed project aimed at the optimal fans'experience," read a recent club statement.
