Brady apologises for delay

West Ham vice-chair Karren Brady has apologised to supporters for the unreasonable delay in installing suitable wi-fi at the Olympic Stadium.

Replying to an enquiry from supporter Tony Coleman via Twitter, Brady admitted that although installation of the network was beyond her control she had continued to press stadium operators E20 - with little success.

"There are pockets of wifi in the stadium (for police, media etc)," Brady said in reply to the query, "but the infrastructure required for 60,000 people to all log on has not been installed yet.

"I am sorry this was promised and not delivered. We were promised it by E20 but they have not ensured their operator delivers it. We are constantly onto them to sort it out."

Brady, who took the time to respond to a number of supporter enquiries today via social media also refuted a suggestion that the club asked to play away from home on Boxing Day last year.

"I can confirm that we have never asked not to play at home on Boxing Day," she replied. "And the Premier League have never said we would not be picked to play at home on BD.

"Police often request preferences of London clubs eg no home games while Notting Hill Carnival is on, but the PL do not always agree."
