Italian will answer questions from supporters at Brisbane Road - the first time he has officially met the E10 faithful

Leyton Orient are inviting fans to attend an ‘Evening with president Francesco Becchetti’ on July 25 at Brisbane Road.

It was initially going to be hosted by the supporters club, but has now been switched to the Olympic Suite at the stadium to allow for extra supporters to attend.

165 tickets have been made available for the event with the event commencing at 7.30pm.

Orient fans will be given the chance to meet the Italian officially for the first time since he took charge of the club in July 2014.

Supporters wishing to attend should email club secretary Lindsey Martin on with the header ‘MEET THE PRESIDENT-TICKET ALLOLCATION’.

This needs to be by 4pm on July 1 and fans are asked to supply their full name, address and date of birth in the email.

A ballot will then take place to determine the successful applicants with only one ticket available per application.

Any email received without all of the above application criteria, or after the deadline will be discarded.

Tickets for the event can then be collected at the home friendly against Charlton Athletic on July 23, or alternatively on the night.

Applicants will be asked to confirm their full name and/or address/date of birth when collecting the ticket.

Once supporters have been advised they have been successful in their ticket application, those fans will have until July 21 at 10pm to submit questions.

They should be submitted by email to Colin Munford on with the subject line clearly stating ‘MEET THE PRESIDENT EVENING – QUESTIONS’.

It is a positive step by the O’s president to engage with supporters and explain why he has made certain decisions over the past two years and his future plans.

Former chairman Barry Hearn took part in numerous similar events during his time in charge of the east Londoners and Becchetti will earn more respect from fans if he attends the evening.
