Tottenham has been granted permission for a judicial review into the decision to allow West Ham to move into the Olympic Stadium following next year’s Games.
Spurs has challenged the role of several parties in awarding West Ham the stadium.
The board of the Olympic Park Legacy Company voted 14-0 in February to make the Hammers their preferred choice to take over the stadium in Stratford, east London.
The decision was backed by both the Government and the London mayor.
However, the Premier League club said in a statement: “The club has sought permission from the High Court to bring a claim against the Olympic Park Legacy Company Limited, the mayor of London, the Minister for Sport and the Olympics and the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government for judicial review of a series of decisions made by them to appoint a joint bid by the London Borough of Newham and West Ham United Football Club as preferred bidder in a competition for the lease of the Olympic Stadium.
“The club continues to hold discussions with both local and national government bodies in order to seek to agree a feasible stadium solution.”
Last month Spurs applied for a judicial review into Newham Council’s role in arranging a £40M loan to finance West Ham’s move to the £486M stadium, which was constructed by Sir Robert McAlpine and the Team Stadium consortium.
