West Ham could block any potential Spurs ground share

West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady has indicated that the club could move to block Tottenham Hotspur should they approach the club for a ground share at the Olympic Stadium, according to the BBC.

Tottenham are currently exploring options for a temporary home after it became clear they face a real possibility of being unable to move in to their new home as planned for the 2017-18 season – the new 56,250 capacity stadium is being built next to White Hart Lane but plans are now being challenged by current landowners.

The construction timetable has now had to be revised and the club face a season without a home.

West Ham beat Tottenham Hotspur to the Olympic Stadium and move there in 2016 – and appear to be incredibly unreceptive to the idea of sharing with their rivals, who they have had legal disputes with in the past as well.

Brady said: “No-one has asked us for our permission (to ground-share) and if they did we would probably say no, depending on who it is – if you get my drift.

“We are the anchor tenant for the winter matches and nothing else can happen in that time without our permission.”

Even if Tottenham agreed a deal with the London Legacy Development corporation the Hammers look set to deny any share.

Spurs are also looking other sites including Wembley stadium, a 13 mile move from North London, or more incredible StadiumMK in Milton Keynes, a staggering 49 mile trip from their current home.
