The O’s welcome Colchester United to The Breyer Group Stadium on Boxing Day (1pm) in our next Sky Bet League 2 game of the season. Here is all the match information and FAQs you will need in our Match Pack:

Leyton Orient v Colchester United tickets

Tickets are cheaper to purchase in advance of a match day. You can buy tickets at in-advance prices (ranging from £3 for Under-11s to £18 for adults) online until midnight on Christmas Day. After this time you can still buy online at match day prices until 10am on Boxing Day. Click here to see our prices.

You can also purchase on the day from our West Stand Ticket Office windows or on selected cash turnstiles in the Q2W Tommy Johnstone South Stand and the Green Inc East Stand.


Collecting match tickets

All match ticket collections on Boxing Day will be at the white Ticket Collection kiosk adjacent to our West Stand ticket office from 10am. The only exception is hospitality tickets, which will be available from Main Reception from 10.30am.


Wyvern Suite closed

The Wyvern Suite in the East Stand will not be opening for this fixture.


Boxing Day Sales

Make sure you visit our Club Superstore for some excellent Boxing Day bargains. Many of these will be made available online later on Boxing Day, but your best chance to get the best deals will be to visit us in-store from 10am.

Travelling by tube?

A good service is expected as normal on the Central line, and there’s a special service provided on the London Overground, Boxing Day. There are planned closures of the Waterloo & City line and TFL Rail with part closures on the District and Northern lines which will affect anyone who usually travels to The Breyer Group Stadium via these routes.
