The O’s will play three of their first five matches back in the Football League at Brisbane Road
Leyton Orient will be at home on the opening day of the 2019/20 League Two season with Cheltenham Town the visitors to the capital on August 3.
The O's would have wanted to play at Brisbane Road first up and it will be an emotional occasion given everything that has happened at the club in recent weeks and even going back to the previous ownership.
After a clash with the Robins, Ross Embleton will go head-to-head with Sol Campbell's Macclesfield Town a week later.
Stevenage visit E10 on August 17 before a long midweek trip to Mansfield Town, who made the play-offs last season, a few days later.

Over Christmas, Orient will visit Cambridge United on December 21 before Colchester United head to the capital on Boxing Day.
