Stadium sale

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) admitted this week that it is looking at the possibility of flogging London’s £469 million Olympic main stadium – designed by HOK Sport and Peter Cook – once the Games have finished.

Chicago has emerged as one of the favourites to buy the stadium – the city is in the running to host the 2016 Olympic Games.

Astragal reckons that the idea could develop into a ‘flat-pack Games’ that could be sold to other host cities. Although while the ODA seems happy to sell temporary stadia, Astragal is unsure that it will also be able to sell meatballs and hotdogs for 80p after purchasing a stadium.
