Leyton Orient FC - Matchroom Stadium
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.
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.
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.
