While the stadium is turned into a football stadium, we could give the compliment and the share of the ground with Charlton. Until then, their land should be large enough for our support. London had applied to host the 2015 World Athletics Championships at the Olympic Stadium. It was against the Olympic Stadium in Beijing and the Polish city of Chorzev. However, the stadium had to withdraw its bid due to the uncertainties that resulted from the announcement of the use of the stadium after the Olympic Games, which led to Beijing winning the championships. [206] With the future of the stadium resolved, London again used the stadium to compete at the 2017 World Athletics Championships. [207] The offer was made official in August when Lord Coe submitted his candidacy in person a few weeks later at the 2011 World Athletics Championships in Daegu, supported by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and the British government. [208] On 11 November 2011, the IAAF officially awarded the 2017 World Cup to London. [209] The World Para-Athletics Championships (formerly Athletics World Championships IPC) were scheduled to take place one month before the physical event[210] and were officially confirmed for the stadium in December 2012.

[211] The 2017 athletics event was the last track championship for Mo Farah[212] and Usain Bolt. [213] In November 2015, the 2015 Race of Champions was held at the stadium. It was the first time since 2008 that Great Britain had hosted the event, with Wembley Stadium last hosting the competition in 2008. [255] Andy Priaulx and Jason Plato`s English team won the State Cup, while Sebastian Vettel won the Champions League. [256] [257] The stadium is located in the south of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Stratford and Stratford International stations are the closest stations to Olympic Park and are about a 20-minute walk from the stadium. [273] Stratford International is served by Southeastern trains on High Speed 1, which offer four trains per hour to St Pancras International, as well as other routes to Kent, while Stratford Station offers overgrounds in North, West and South London and heads to London Liverpool Street and East Anglia on the Great Eastern Main Line. [273] Stratford is on the Jubilee and Central lines of London Underground to Central London and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR). [273] The DLR offers a direct link to London City Airport. In addition, the stadium is served by Hackney Wick (London Overground) and Pudding Mill Lane (DLR), but may be closed for major events due to capacity constraints. From 2019, the stadium will be served by Crossrail.

In December 2012, West Ham was designated as the preferred bidder for the stadium with a separate operator coordinating the use of the community and sport, as well as concerts and events. [149] Leyton Orient` offer was rejected because of its economic viability, and Intelligent Transport Services` offer associated with Formula 1 was rejected because it had too much speculation and uncertainty in its business plan. [150] However, as so much public money went to the stadium and its renovation, the BBC learned that David Gold and David Sullivan had to share all the profits they made by selling the club. [151] [152] West Ham were given three months to improve the terms of their agreement or to lose the stadium; with Johnson goes with plan B without football. [150] The two parties appeared to find common ground in February 2013, with West Ham saying they were prepared to pay $2.5 million in rent per year. In addition, they promised to reimburse the higher roof and seat costs within ten years. [153] [154] Gold said in early March that an agreement could be reached by the middle of the month. [155] On March 22, 2013, West Ham United were awarded a 99-year lease, with the stadium to be used as a home stadium from the 2016/2017 season. [156] In July 2013, UK Athletics was awarded a 50-year contract to use the stadium. [157] Uk Athletics has access to the stadium every year from the last Friday from June to late July.

[158] During London`s bid for the Games, promotional materials contained a main stadium with a roof “that should wrap like muscles supporting the body around the venue”[11] but at that time there was no
