Matchday Information for Leyton Orient (A) - 06 April 2024

— 6 minute read

Travel Update: on top of tube strikes, there is a planned closure of the Central line, meaning that travel to Leyton underground station won't be available. If fans travel to Stratford on other lines, they can make their way to Stratford International DLR station, and then catch the 97 bus (towards Chingford), and get off at the Buckingham Road stop. It's then a one minute walk to the away turnstiles. Alternatively, the ground is a 25 minute walk from Stratford International.

Ticket and travel information is now available on the Club site:

Most of the information below has been taken from the Leyton Orient matchday guide:

Away Fans Information If your question isn't answered below, please get in contact at

Where Will We Sit? 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 days.

Purchasing And Collecting Tickets Away tickets for Gaughan Group Stadium can either be purchased through your club in advance to the game or on the day at selected turnstiles either by cash or card. Please note that tickets are cheaper when purchased in advance.

If you are collecting tickets on the day, these can be collected from our white Ticket Collections booth beside our main Ticket Office in the Justin Edinburgh Stand on Oliver Road, unless otherwise stated. Make sure you arrive in plenty of time to avoid queues on Gaughan Group Stadium.

What Can We Do Before The Match

Here 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 Puma 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 Programme A must-read before every home game, our ‘Orient’ matchday programme is available to purchase around the ground for just £3.50. 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!

Coronation Gardens is adjacent to the south side of Brisbane Road. 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

Westfield Shopping Centre is a stone’s throw away from Brisbane Road. Simply head back to Leyton Tube Station and catch the Central Line 1 stop to Stratford. Abandon all hope, ye who enter Westfield Stratford.

Matchday 'Here to Help' SLO's

Leyton Orient Football Club are excited to announce the launch of the new Matchday SLOs who will be on hand to help all supporters in and around Gaughan Group Stadium on a matchday.

As part of the clubs ongoing commitment to providing fans with a positive matchday experience, a dedicated team of Matchday Supporter Liaison Officers (SLOs) will be stationed at key points in and around the Stadium, on hand to help and assist supporters with any queries or concerns they may have.

You will be able to find our matchday SLO's roaming key areas such as the Club Shop, Ticket Office/Collections, Away Fan entrances, and close to the Supporter’s Club Bar, welcoming supporters as they arrive for the match.
