Tottenham Hotspur F.C. (“Tottenham”) successfully won their Judicial Review challenging the financial support being provided by the London Borough of Newham (“LBoN”) to West Ham United F.C. (“West Ham”) in their attempt to secure tenancy of the new Olympic Stadium post the games in 2012. Tottenham successfully argued that the financial support being provided by LBoN was not commercially attainable and was significantly favouring West Ham in its bid to secure the stadium. Following the Judicial Review, LBoN withdrew its financial support for West Ham and the Olympic Park Legacy Committee announced that it would reopen the tender process for the rights to the future tenancy of the stadium

Portland Advisers prepared the Expert Witness statement on behalf of Tottenham which was key element of the Tottenham case.
