2,000 Ajax Fans To Attend Leyton Orient vs Brighton Under 21's Game

2,000 Ajax Fans To Attend Leyton Orient vs Brighton Under 21's Game

2,000 Ajax fans are planning to attend Leyton Orient's game against Brighton Under 21's on 5 November after the Amsterdam club were prohibited from having away supporters at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.

Chelsea had initially cut their away allocation to 833 fansUEFA announced on Thursday that the Dutch outfit cannot have any travelling fans inside the ground.

Ajax were given by a suspended sentence by the European governing body for the behaviour of fans against Benfica in last season's Champions League and they have now had the punishment properly imposed following trouble away at Valencia in September.

A statement from Ajax read: "UEFA has ruled on the events with Ajax supporters at Valencia-Ajax and the suspended sentence imposed after Benfica-Ajax last season. The biggest sanction is that Chelsea - Ajax will be played on November 5 (9 p.m.) without fans."

But die-hard Ajax fans who have already booked flights and accommodation, are pressing forward with an alternative as they want to be at Brisbane Road for the visit of Brighton's youngsters in the Leasing.com trophy.

They aren't able to watch their team in action and so they are ensuring they are at least seeing some action over in East London while they are over in the capital.

And if Leyton Orient are welcoming, which seems to be the case judging by the response on social media, it could be a special atmosphere in store.
