And they'll struggle to get the goal posts in
They already charge loads now for tickets. They will be trebled.

It would be a terrible football stadium mind
It's an athletics stadium with too many seats. It will end up being a £9b white elephant. I enjoyed it all, but in years to come, I don't know if we will feel it was all worth it.

I think there is going to be retractable seats put over the track closer to the pitch which move when athletics are happening. Could be wrong.
