Where will we sit?
arrow_drop_down

Visiting away fans are house in the southern part of the Green Inc East Stand, accessible through Entrance D on a match day. There is capacity for just over 1,500 away supporters, including wheelchair-using fans and includes toilet and refreshment facilities.

The East Stand is the oldest still in use at the stadium and first opened in 1956 following the Club’s promotion to Division Two. Formerly home to the dressing rooms and club offices prior to the construction of the Justin Edinburgh Stand, you can get a sense of real history from sitting in this stand. Today it is also home to Leyton Orient Trust’s ‘Fans for Diversity’ hub, a former players lounge which caters for community groups on a match day.

arrow_drop_down

There are plenty of things to occupy your time before the game kicks off, even as an away fan.

Visit our Club Superstore

Located on Oliver Road, adjacent to the Club’s ticket office, our revamped Club Superstore stocks a wide range of New Balance replica kit, training wear and leisurewear for all ages. Whilst we appreciate visiting supporters won’t want to deck themselves out in Orient colours, we know some fans like to purchase a memento of their visit so you will find a wide range of key rings, stickers, magnets and other accessories that may be of interest. You can even buy O’s chocolate and sweets for your youngsters. Our Club Superstore is open from midday on a Saturday or 9am for a midweek fixture right through to kick-off. It is also open for a short time after full time.

Buy our Match Day Magazine

A must-read before every home game, our ‘E10’ magazine is available to purchase around the ground for just £3. It’s unique to every match and features 60-pages of exclusive content catering for home and away supporters, including interviews with key staff and players, the latest club news, fun features, junior pages and much more.

Have a drink in the Leyton Orient Supporters Club

Also located on Oliver Road, next to our Main Reception, is the Leyton Orient Supporters Club. Entry is free to members or £1 for non-members and it’s a great place to enjoy a friendly pre-match drink with the family. As well as a full range of wines and spirits, the Club serves an award-winning range of real beers from all over the country, having achieved special recognition from CAMRA (the Campaign for Real Ale). For many visiting supporters who leave E10 pointless, the highlight of their trip is often the Supporters Club!

Visit the Fan Zone

Our Fan Zone is open on select Saturday games during the Summer and Spring months at Score Leisure Centre, opposite the Justin Edinburgh Stand on Oliver Road. Activities are varied but include food from our match day caterers, a licensed bar, music, kids activities and more. It’s open from 12pm to 2.45pm.

Onnounce the Teams
arrow_drop_down

Onnounce the Teams is our latest matchday feature here at The Breyer Group Stadium where we give a young Orient fan and a young away fan the chance to read their team’s line-up out over the tannoy in the build-up to kick-off.

The ideal candidate will be a confident and enthusiastic youngster who knows the names of your respective team’s players and who won’t mind speaking over the tannoy in the stadium.

If you think your youngster fits this role and they are attending their team’s away fixture here at Leyton Orient, please apply by emailing our mascot Theo on [email protected] with their name, age and a parent / guardian contact telephone number, clearly stating the team you support. The successful candidate will then be contacted in due course with further details.

Please note that the young fan will be required to have a valid match ticket and be in the stadium (away section) by 2.15pm for a Saturday game or 7pm for a Tuesday night game.

Matchday birthday announcements
arrow_drop_down

We are more than happy to read out any birthday, welcoming, congratulations or other similar messages from visiting supporters on matchdays over the PA system.

However, we would ask that any message request is received at least 24 hours before kick-off.

To send in a message, simply email us by clicking here.

Please note we can not guarantee to read out any message.

What is your mascot?
arrow_drop_down

Our mascot, Theo the Wyvern is a cheeky chap who you’ll see walking around the ground on matchday. If he’s not posing for selfies or giving hi-fives to fans young and old, he’ll be watching the game pitchside and often proving quite the entertainment as he reacts to goals or on-field decisions. He’s an active wyvern so you might even see him doing press-ups or running around with his flag to keep fit.

But “what is a wyvern?”, we hear you say. A wyvern is a mythical creature, half dragon and half serpent and you’ll notice the Leyton Orient crest comprises two wyverns facing each other. The dragon represents the crest of the City of London whilst the serpent represents Orient’s connections with the sea (Orient Shipping Company and P&O Group). You can read about those connections in our Club History.

Local Attractions
arrow_drop_down

If you’re staying in the area after the game, here are a few local attractions you may like to visit.

Coronation Gardens is adjacent to the south side of The Breyer Group Stadium. It includes a maze, ornamental gardens, fountain, bandstand. Most importantly though it’s home to a 2.2m high statue of Laurie Cunningham. A true pioneer, Laurie made his debut for Orient in 1974 before going on to represent West Bromwich Albion and Spanish giants Real Madrid, as well as becoming one of the first black players to play for the England senior team. Sadly, Laurie’s life was cut far too short when, aged 33, he died in a car accident in Spain in 1989, but his legacy continues to inspire us all.

The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park is free to visit every day of the week and is home to a number of stadia from the London 2012 Olympic Games, as well as parklands, waterways, playgrounds and cafes. You can ride the slide at the Arcelormittal Orbit, swim in the pools of champions or watch a whole host of different sporting events at The Copper Box Arena. Visit www.queenelizabetholympicpark.co.uk.

Westfield Stratford City is one of the largest shopping centres in Europe and is therefore a great local destination for fashion, beauty, lifestyle and entertainment. Adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and both Stratford and Stratford International stations, it houses approximately 280 stores and 70 restaurants. Visit https://uk.westfield.com/stratfordcity.

Located in North Greenwich, the O2 is one of the world’s most popular music and entertainment venues. As well as playing host to some of the world’s biggest acts, it also includes a bowling alley, clubs, cinema, exhibition space, bars and restaurants. Visit www.the02.co.uk.
