We saw the Dome's sports potential too

  • Comment

We were heartened to read (AJ 1.6.00) Lord Rogers' comments and views about the afteruse of the Dome for sports.

Our submission Sports Dome 2001 failed to make the final stage (last two bidders). We believed that we were the only team that had grasped the enormous potential for sports use in this seminal building with one of the largest volumes of clear enclosed space in the world. Our bid was fully supported by Sport England and all of the sports bodies. I'm afraid the original criteria and competition requirements have been abandoned in favour of whoever makes the highest bid.
