The O’s chairman will speak to his Hammers counterparts over the move
Leyton Orient will make a bid to ground-share with West Ham in the Olympic Stadium, chairman Barry Hearn has confirmed.
Reports had suggested that they were set to approach the Hammers over a ground-share and the O’s chairman said “Yes, it’s true.”
Hearn will seek talks with West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan over the move, which would mean two London clubs sharing a stadium on a permanent basis for the first time.
In recent years Crystal Palace and Wimbledon have shared Selhurst Park before the Dons collapsed.
Fulham played at QPR’s Loftus Road while Craven Cottage was being redeveloped and West Ham and Charlton groundshared briefly but all sides have since returned to their own stadium.
