Decision delayed on London Olympic Stadium future
LONDON (AP) -- The future of London's Olympic Stadium may not be resolved until after this summer's games following a decision to extend the bidding phase by eight weeks.
The London Legacy Development Corporation had been set to decide on a bidder this month but has pushed the date back "to allow more time to address a number of issues which have arisen."
The corporation did not say what the issues were.
West Ham soccer club was originally selected as the preferred long-term tenant of the $780 million stadium last year, but the deal was called off following legal challenges from Premier League club Tottenham, east London neighbor Leyton Orient and a local architect.
The 80,000-seat stadium will host the Olympic opening ceremony July 27.
