The EFL can confirm that a revised allocation of 1000 tickets (from 1700) will be made available to Leyton Orient fans planning to attend Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two fixture at Blackpool.Ticket sales had been temporarily suspended on Monday after Blackpool had raised some concerns to the EFL Executive.
However, following extensive discussions and representations made by relevant parties throughout the course of Tuesday, an agreement has been reached that delivers on the EFL’s objective to ensure both sets of spectators can attend the match live.
All remaining tickets sold to Leyton Orient supporters between now and Saturday’s kick-off will be done so only on the basis that the purchaser is a current 2016/17 Season Ticket holder or a member of the Leyton Orient Fans Trust (LOFT).
All tickets sold prior to Monday’s suspension of sale remain valid.
An EFL Spokesman said: “We are delighted we have been able to find an amicable solution to this particular issue and would like to place on record our thanks to all those parties who have assisted the EFL in achieving the outcome.”
