Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy have joined the bidding process to play at the Olympic Stadium in East London, England.

They join bids from local football franchises West Ham United and Leyton Orient, plus one from Formula One chief Bernie Ecclescake.

The original decision to give the stadium to Wet Ham United gratis with £40 million of council taxpayers money was reversed last March and the bidding process reopened. West Ham resubmitted their bid as a tenant only.

Leyton Orient, with average crowds of 4,500 in League One for the past six seasons, have submitted on the basis of a ground-share with Premier League neighbours Wet Sham.

Bernie Ecclesacke is looking to attract new followers to F1, and has tried promotional racing in the West End of London streets in recent years.

The shock bidder is the LA Galaxy, as they currently play 12,000 miles away. The bid is seen as a way of LA Galaxy playing in a stronger division and also appeasing star player David Beckham, who was unceremoniously dropped from the Team GB football squad by dictator/coach Stuart Pearce.

The decision on the successful bidder are expected to be announced around October, shortly after the Paralympics Games end in August.

A spokesman for Leyton Orient chairman Harry Bearn said "Show me the money!" West Ham refused to comment. Boris Johnson said "Leyton Who?"
