There are significant commercial sensitivities around sharing this information as a procurement process for stadium adaptation is underway. However, I can confirm that a full funding package is in place from a variety of sources including the Legacy Corporation's own budget; a £15m contribution from West Ham United; £40m from LB Newham; £25m of central Government funding and the existing funding that was set aside in the Olympic public sector funding package for the original Stadium transformation scheme.
