The Olympic Park Legacy Company (OPLC) has announced that it has appointed operators to run the Aquatics Centre, Multi-Use Arena and ArcelorMittal Orbit after the 2012 Games.

It means that the futures of six of the eight permanent Olympic venues are now secured, with leisure trust Greenwich Leisure (GLL) to operate the Aquatics Centre and Multi-Use Arena.

Meanwhile, Balfour Beatty WorkPlace is to run the ArcelorMittal Orbit attraction and is also to co-ordinate the maintenance of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park once reopen from 2013.

The contracts will provide 86 apprenticeship places per year, while combining two venues into one deal will ensure the Aquatics Centre will require no additional public subsidy.

OPLC chair Baroness Margaret Ford said: "GLL and Balfour Beatty WorkPlace will play a key part in the creating a Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park that is a thriving visitor destination with world-class sporting venues both affordable and accessible to the public.

"The combination of Balfour Beatty WorkPlace's commitment to jobs and apprenticeships, and GLL's innovative proposals for sports programming will create a host of economic and sporting opportunities."

Prime Minister David Cameron added: "As we mark 200 days to go, and six out of the eight Olympic venues having already secured their future, we are well on track to delivering a lasting legacy for the whole of Britain."

It is hoped operators will be appointed for the remaining two venues - the Olympic Stadium and the Press Centre and Broadcast Centre - later this year.
