Essex in joint bid for Olympic Stadium
Essex have announced they and the University of East London have jointly put in a bid to the Olympic Park Legacy Company to utilise space in the Olympic Stadium.
An Essex statement read: ‘We cannot provide any further detail at this stage, as we are bound by a legal confidentiality agreement.
‘We can though state that both UEL and Essex Cricket see this as a fantastic opportunity. We are committed to supporting the achievement of the best possible outcomes from the legacy operation of the Olympic Stadium.’
It is not the first time Essex have sought to use the Olympic Stadium. In April 2010 they revealed plans to share it with West Ham United Football Club and Newham Council.
