The side have enjoyed great success this season, reaching the finals of the Isthmian Cup and the Capital Cup, and are currently on a five-match unbeaten run.
We are pleased to announce that this will be in conjunction with Kick It Out, the charity focussed on equality and inclusion in football. Kick It Out has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary of working tirelessly to combat racism and discrimination in the game.
The match will be a 2pm kickoff and admission will be £3 (or free for under-18s/LOFC season ticket holders). Admission will be via the West Stand only and catering will be available.
Manager Chris Brayford said: “It is always a big boost for the players to see and hear that tremendous backing from the Orient fans and playing at the stadium is something everyone looks forward to! We are proud of the association with Kick It Out so it is great also to be able to highlight the amazing work that they have done – and the ways in which football has changed – in their quarter-century in existence. The men’s team have had a very impressive campaign and we’re hopeful that, with two cup finals to play for in April and May, we can do our bit to make it even more of an enjoyable season!”
Captain Danielle Griffiths said: “Playing at the Breyer Group Stadium, the Home of the O’s, is always a privilege and a fantastic experience. In addition, hosting the game in conjunction with Kick It Out, a charity at the forefront of championing equality and combating discrimination, is an honour and we look forward to raising awareness of the importance of inclusion in football.
The ground has been the scene of some fantastic performances and results this season which we wish to continue. The support of the club and its fans is always appreciated so we hope to see many of you on the 24th to help us on our way to victory! COYOs!”
