Orient today revealed that they will not be allocated any more tickets for the F.A. Cup 4th round tie against Premier League Charlton Athletic. The O’s have already been given 5,800 tickets, but after the well documented ticket fiasco which has left hundreds of loyal O’s fans ticketless, the club had been hoping for some help from their hosts.

Unfortunately, for safety and segregation reasons, Charlton are not able to give Orient anymore tickets for the game. Around 19,000 tickets have been sold, with around 8,000 tickets still available, though these tickets are of course in the Charlton section.

With so many O’s fans missing the game, Orient had asked the F.A. as to the possibility of a live beam back to Brisbane Road. However, the F.A. rejected this idea although the club are appealing the judgement.

The club is still holding some tickets, these are for season ticket holders and will be drawn in a ballot system with successful season ticket holders being notified by tomorrow.
