Half price offer for final home game

Leyton Orient have slashed 50 per cent off ticket prices for home supporters at the vital final home game of the season against Sheffield United on Saturday.

The decision to reduce prices has been made to ensure as big a crowd as possible for the final home game of the season which could help decide the club’s fate in the League One relegation battle.

Fabio Liverani’s men are two points adrift of safety after losing 1-0 at Rochdale last night and end the season with a trip to Swindon on Sunday May 3.

Orient’s Chief Executive Officer Alessandro Angelieri said: “The game has become very important and I have taken this action at short notice to encourage supporters to come along and help support the team.

“We need the fans to act as the 12th man as we fight for safety in this league and I hope that by cutting prices in this way we will ensure a big crowd that will get behind the team for the game.”

With Sheffield United already selling their allocation for the fixture, the game has been made all ticket for supporters, with no cash turnstiles in operation on the day.

Any away supporters found in home sections will be ejected from the stadium and supporters are strongly advised to purchase tickets in advance of the day of the game via the online ticketing system at or by calling 0871 310 1881.

Home fans that have already purchased a ticket for the Sheffield United fixture at full price will not receive a refund on the difference, but they will be entitled to either a free match ticket for the first home game of the 2015-16 season (subject to availability) or a £25 discount if they purchase a 2015-16 season ticket.

Fans are advised to retain the purchased full price ticket against Sheffield United as the above offer will only be accepted upon submission of their relevant match ticket.

The special offer is available to anyone that has paid the full ticket price, in advance of the 50 per cent discount being offered.

The ticket must also have a monetary value so excludes any complimentary or under-11 tickets in the Family Stand.

Away stand tickets are excluded from the offer.

West/East Stand: Adult – £11.50; Concessions – £7.50
