Exeter Head to Orient: a Supporters Guide

Exeter Head to Orient: a Supporters Guide

This weekend Exeter City travel to the Matchroom Stadium (formerly known as Brisbane Road) to face Leyton Orient. Here I provide an account of the ground and a guide for travelling supporters.

What`s the Ground Like:

Capacity: 9271 all seated (unfortunately)

City fans will be housed in part of the East Stand where there are some supporting pillars. Since our last visit in 2003 there have been some quite dramatic changes to the ground. Most notable is the West Stand which has a large number of offices on top of the seated area, as well all four corners being filled in with blocks of residential apartments.

Tickets:

Note this match is currently ALL TICKET for away fans, and I believe our allocation is 1400. This is probably due to our large followings at Barnet and Brentford last season. However, I have to admit it seems a strange decision and can`t see us taking more than 500-600ish.

Tickets are currently available from the club reception.

Prices: £20 Adults
£13 U-18s, O65s, Students, Armed Forces, Unemployed

Getting to the Ground:

By Train:

Leyton is the nearest railway station, which is on the Central Line. City fans from Waterloo can take the eastbound Jubilee Line and then change at Stratford for the eastbound Central. For those arriving into Paddington, the best route is taking the southbound Bakerloo Line to Oxford Circus, where you can then take an eastbound Central Line Train.

Once you get to Leyton tube station, turn right down the hill, and continue along High Road to Coronation Gardens on your left. Turn down Buckingham Road after the park and the ground is in front of you.

Alternatively, from Leyton Midland Road, turn left towards Leyton, and continue down the High Road and past the cricket ground before turning down Windsor Road where the ground will greet you.


By Car:

A good option would be to park the car on the outskirts of London somewhere on the Central Line (such as Epping) where parking may be cheaper and easier.


Other Useful Facts:

The Matchday Programme is called E10 and is £3
