History and description

In 1937, Leyton Orient moved to the Matchroom Stadium, commonly referred to as Brisbane Road. The site had earlier been used by amateur club Leyton FC, whereas Leyton Orient had played at a stadium on Lea Bridge Road. The stand had a modern light and heating system, an electronic scoreboard, and a seated capacity of 3,000.

In the following decades, the terraces got gradually better and more extensive, and the western terrace was covered.

In 1964, Brisbane Road had an attendance record of 34,345 spectators for an FA Cup match against West Ham United.

The terrace of the West Stand at Anfield got converted into seating in 1978, but very little changed until the late 1990s when a new South Stand was built.

In 2005, Leyton Orient opened a new West Stand, and moved their club facilities from the old main stand to the West Stand. Two years later, a new North Stand opened, leaving only the old main stand in place.

The stadium can now accommodate an estimated 80,000 fans and is already in use by the first team. To finance the developments, part of the surrounding land was sold to property developers, which resulted in four apartment blocks being built in each corner of the stadium. The stadium can now accommodate an estimated 80,000 fans and is already in use by the first team.

Getting there

The Matchroom Stadium is located in the Leyton area, northeast London, approximately 5 miles from the City of London. The stadium is easily accessible by metro, as Leyton tube station is only a 5- to 10-minute walk away. Leyton is located on the Central Line, which crosses right through central London.

Leyton Midland Road station is also easily accessible on foot. Trains run between the station and most of London's north side, with two stops further west at Blackhorse Road serving the Victoria Line.

Address: Brisbane Road, Leyton, London, E10 5NF

Eat, drink, and sleep

The area around The Matchroom Stadium is residential and there are a few pubs and places to eat near Leyton High Road. The area is a typical London multi-ethnic neighbourhood with resulting food choices. The regenerated Stratford centre and adjacent Westfield Shopping Centre are only 1.5 mile south of the stadium, or one tube stop away. They offer plenty of eating and drinking options, needless to say you can also drink in central London and catch the tube to the match.

If you want to stay as close to The Matchroom Stadium as possible, the Stratford area is a good option. There are various budget and mid-range hotels in the area, and it will also be easy to get to central London from there.

If you are among the last to arrive, you may not even make it back in time for the second half. The ground quickly emptied after the match, and we followed the crowds to Leyton tube station this time. We were expecting some queuing at the entrance, but there was none at all and we could get on the first train arriving.

I visited Leyton Orient vs Preston North End on 24 November 2012.

We decided to visit League One side Leyton Orient because London has a lot more to offer than Premier League clubs.

We arrived at the stadium well in advance, despite a ten-minute walk from the station to the stadium. We found the ticket office in the West Stand and queued for two minutes before we could buy tickets. If you plan early, you can save yourself a few £ by buying in advance. We paid £20.00 for a seat at the West Stand, though a £5.00 promotion applied. Still not cheap though.

The Matchroom Stadium definitely has character with its old main stand, new West Stand, and two smaller stands behind the goal. The apartment blocks in the corners give it even more edge. The view was good from the West Stand, although we were fortunate to be high up as the rain reached the lower rows of the stand.

The away fans were seated in the old main (East) stand, and made a reasonable amount of noise. The home fans were a bit quieter, with most of the noise coming from the south stand. Apart from the away fans, there were hardly any home fans seated in the remaining parts of the East Stand. The other three stands were well-filled.

The concessions and toilets were housed in a rather cramped area underneath the stand, and queuing was significant during the break. If you are among the last to arrive, you will be lucky to be back before the start of the second half.

We quickly got out of the ground after the match and followed the crowds to Leyton tube station this time. We were expecting a bit of queuing at the entrance, but there was none whatsoever and we could get on the first train arriving.
