Allardyce wants Olympic move



West Ham want to play at the Olympic Stadium

West Ham want to play at the Olympic Stadium

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce believes a move to the Olympic Stadium could help them grow to the size of Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Hammers are vying to take over the Stratford venue that was built to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Its future has long been the subject of debate, with West Ham initially denied tenancy last October following a legal dispute involving Tottenham and Leyton Orient.

Allardyce hopes West Ham will takeover the stadium after London 2012 and believes it could take the club to a new level. "When you see the atmosphere created in that arena then I think you would dream of walking out there, like you did at Wembley," Allardyce said.

"Every footballer's dream is to walk out at Wembley and I think when you've got a venue of that size [it would be the same].

"All the players look forward to playing at Old Trafford and at the Emirates.

"Not quite so much these days at Liverpool or Everton because they're old stadiums now.

"But Manchester United is now almost completely redeveloped and has 75,000, while the Emirates is one hell of a place when it is full.

"We could be that size in a brand new stadium, with that atmosphere.

"It would be awesome to walk a team out on that pitch and say 'this is West Ham's new home and the creation of what could possibly be a new modern history hopefully'."
