West Ham United Football Club's new owners, David Gold and David Sullivan, are keen to move away from Upton Park in an attempt to compete with the top four in the Premier League and to allow more Hammers' fans to enjoy watching the team play.

The new owners are keen to move to the Olympic Stadium after the 2012 London Olympics have finished allowing them to increase funding due to match day gate receipts.

Gold is looking to the future for the East London club and is determined to get the club back into the European arena.

The former Birmingham City owner Gold explained: “We have a seven-year plan to get them into the Champions League and turn them into a big club.

"We hope we can persuade the government to let us move to the Olympic stadium which is in the same borough. It's a natural home for West Ham United."
