Leyton Orient FC - Matchroom Stadium

Matchroom Stadium Guide

Stadium Info

Brisbane Road has an all seated capacity of just over 9,200. The new West Stand is an impressive sight for a build at this level and has taken over as the main stand housing the changing rooms, offices and underground car park. The old South Stand has two supporting pillars making it the only stand in the ground in which you may find yourself with an obstructed view. The two relatively new stands behind each goal are of similar size and as the 4 corners of the ground are filled in with flats and offices it helps keep the atmosphere in.

Away Fans

Visiting supporters are situated toward the south end of the Main stand where up to 1,000 fans can be accommodated. Leg room is very fair and the seats aren't overly comfortable whilst the view of the playing surface is slightly restricted by a couple of supporting pillars. However, there's generally a very good atmosphere and the corners being filled in with the flat blocks has helped to keep much of the noise in.

Where To Drink

There are a number of pubs along the high road that welcome both home and away fans. Alternatively, there's quite a choice, from the Birkbeck Tavern in Langthorne Road to the supporters club that's situated at the ground. Again both welcome visiting supporters with the supporters club charging 1 entry.

Parking

Once at the stadium, many of the surrounding streets are fair game for parking. There is no parking at the ground itself but arrive early enough and you wont struggle to find a spot. Be aware of the permit only areas though. These seem to pop up just as quickly as I write a new description.

Fans Reviews

  • Travel: Went by Tube and couldn't be easier, with Leyton Station being about a 10 minute walk straight down High Road Leyton from the ground.

    Refreshments: I was going out for my tea straight after the game so I didn't get anything. There was loads of choice on the road from the station to the ground though, and just as good inside. The South Stand has a proper bar inside, it was certainly nice being able to get into a ground nice and early and watch the early TV game with a pint in the warm! A very nice change! The food bit also sold chicken burgers too which I do like, so a shame I wasn't eating as very few grounds do them!

    Impressions: The ground has been extensively redeveloped with three modern stands with flawless views all around, only the old East Stand where the away fans sit is a sign of the old Brisbane Road. What really makes the ground unique though is how the club funded the redevelopment by selling the land in the corners to developers to build a block of flats in each corner! Needless to say, there were people sitting on their balconies watching the game!

    Atmosphere: Really good actually. It certainly helped that Tranmere had a healthy following, that Orient scored early on and generally played well, and it was such a tense end to end game.

    Anything Else: The O's run out to Tijuana Taxi. Few grounds can match that, never mind beat it!

    Enjoy: Quality little ground, a genuinely friendly bunch of supporters and a welcoming little ground, which is pretty rare in London! A great day out.
