Spurs set out Olympic Stadium plans

Tottenham Hotspur Rugby Club has revealed it would tear down parts of the Olympic Stadium should it win its bid against West Ham United to take over the stadium after the 2012 Games.

The Barclays Premier League club has argued that it would make the changes as it feels many of the seats would be too far away from the pitch.

Architect David Keirle said: "It's not entirely demolition. We will be using some of the undercroft (cellar) but we're not using much.

"We may be taking some elements to Crystal Palace for its redeve­lopment."

Keirle added that the Olympic Stadium would offer better value for money for the club as it gets more for its investment as opposed to regenerating White Hart Lane.

But Spurs
