London’s Olympic Stadium has a deal in principle to hold a two-week festival in 2016 for a non-Olympic sport … cricket.

“In principle, there is an agreement that a two-week festival of T20-type cricket could be played at the Olympic Park from 2016,” Derek Bowden, the chief executive for the cricket club Essex, told the BBC. “Ourselves, Kent and Middlesex have all expressed interest in playing there.”

The soccer club West Ham United is already set to move into the Olympic Stadium starting in 2016.
