Four bids have been lodged to become a legacy occupier for the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.
The bids were submitted to the London Legacy Development Corporation by today's 12pm deadline.
West Ham United Football Club is up against a bid from Bucks New University to open a University College of Football Business and a plan to host a London Formula One grand prix from Intelligent Transport Solutions.
Leyton Orient Football Club told me last night that it decided against bidding in the end.
Meanwhile the University of East London, which had been expected to bid in a joint venture with Essex County Cricket Club also decided against bidding.
A UEL spokesman said: "The University of East London has decided that it will not be proceeding with its submission in relation to the Olympic Stadium. As a university, we continue to have a strong interest in ensuring students and staff can gain full benefit from the world-class facilities within the Olympic Park, as well as contributing to the overall legacy of the London 2012 Games."
West Ham is favourite to become the long term tenant having previously been selected to buy the stadium in a decision that was eventually scrapped due to legal challenges.
Although the LLDC may take the decision to choose more than one tenant if a workable solution can be achieved.
An LLDC spokesman said: "The London Legacy Development Corporation has received four bids from parties interested in becoming concessionaires of the stadium after the Games.
"The Legacy Corporation will assess the bid submissions to determine the winning concessionaires to occupy the stadium alongside athletics."
