FILE - This is a Friday, Jan. 21, 2011 file photo shows the main Olympic stadium in London. The British government and the Mayor of London formally approved Thursday March 3, 2011 West Ham's bid to move into the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games. The Premier League club was selected last month as the preferred tenant for the 537 million pound ($867 million) venue, beating a rival bid from Tottenham. The decision needed to be ratified by the government and Mayor Boris Johnson's office, and the Department for Communities and Local Government granted that approval on Thursday. less
